You may never see your main sewer line, but, like anything else in your home, the drain will require professional plumbing service from time to time. Drain Blaster Bill offers professional drain cleaning services that will fix any damaged or clogged drain line. We can identify problems in your entire drainage system and then provide the right solution to get your plumbing back on track. Below are some of the issues we look for when we inspect your pipes.
1. Clogged Sewer Line or Backed Up Toilet
The biggest red flag that there is something wrong with your main sewer line is water backing up out of a drain or the toilet. You may also hear gurgling sounds coming from the pipes when you turn on the water or flush the toilet. If it sounds like water is percolating while washing the clothes, you should call us to break up the blockage in the pipes. A professional floor drain cleaning should do the trick.
2. Tree Roots in the Plumbing
Tree roots are often the primary cause of a clogged sewer line. Older homes have older trees in the yard. Over time the roots may find their way to pipes. When pressure occurs between the tree root and the plumbing, the tree roots almost always win out. They will penetrate the pipe and create water leaks or severe blockage. Again, gurgling noises are an indication that there is a hole somewhere in the sewer line. We can use a camera inspection method to find the problem without digging up your plumbing. If your pipes are damaged, we’ll need to replace them and cut back the roots.
3. You Can Tell by the Smell
Clogged sewage has nowhere to go but back up the pipes. If it’s lingering near the tip of the drain, it will fill up a room with a nasty odor. You shouldn’t be alarmed if you smell it every once in a while. If it reoccurs, however, call us to look into the problem, and we’ll see where the blockage is located. You may also notice the smell in the yard. This means that roots have damaged the pipes and the sewage is spilling out into the ground.
