Five Star Septic Is On Call 7 Days a Week to Fix Your Fairfax Pipe Problem

A slow flowing sewer pipe – or, worse yet, a backup of wastewater – is one of the most unpleasant disasters a homeowner ever has to face. The moment you observe problems that could indicate a problem with your sewer pipe, start searching for the problem. If it’s beyond your field of knowledge, call a professional. If you wait, you and your whole family will wish you hadn’t. Here are some of the signs you ought to keep an eye out for:

  • Your yard smells like sewage
  • The stench of sewage is coming out of any of your drains
  • Dishwasher wastewater shows up in the sink
  • Sewer water emerges from the bathtub drain
  • Toilets and other drains drain more slowly than usual

Most Frequent Sewer Line Problems in Fairfax

Among the most frequent causes of sewer pipe clogs is root growth. Tree roots can infiltrate pipes, slowly but surely putting pressure on pipes and then working their way into seams. If even very little roots can make their way between joints, they can create a dam that builds up material until the flow halts entirely. They can also grow, eventually creating breaks in the pipe. Few things are more unpleasant than dealing with a sewer line break on your yard.

Less-frequent sewer-pipe issues that you may face:

  • Grease buildup
  • Pipe damage
  • Poorly aligned pipes
  • Backups created by solid objects

If you have any backflow at all – into sinks, bathtubs, or even toilets – the safest thing to do is to stop all running water until it’s diagnosed and fixed. If you keep letting water pour down the drain, you risk serious flooding.

No Sewer Problem in Va is Beyond Five Star Septic’ Expertise

A few last tips to keep in mind when you are dealing with your sewer pipe problems:

  • If you have an older sewer line, ask for an estimate to update your entire line. Depending on what it is you need done, it might not be that much spendier than the fix you are currently facing, and will save you major expenses in the future. Modern pipe solutions are better at preventing root infiltration and general pipe aging.
  • check how much of the sewer line cost is your responsibility and how much of it is Fairfax’s. The sewer line beneath your property belongs to you, but past the Y-joint leading to the city sewer main, it’s the city that should foot the bill.
