Five Star Septic Is the Solution for Professional Mclean Pipe Services

A slow flowing sewer drain – or, worse yet, a backup of sewage – is one of the most unenjoyable disasters a homeowner ever has to encounter. As soon as you notice problems that could indicate a problem with your sewer pipe, start diagnosing the problem. If it’s outside your field of knowledge, call a professional plumber. If you wait, you and your entire family will wish you hadn’t. Here are some of the indications you ought to look out for:

  • You can smell sewage in your yard
  • Sewage smell emits from a drain in the house
  • Wastewater from the dishwasher backs up into the sink
  • Sewer water travels up the bathtub drain
  • Toilets and other drains empty more slowly than usual

What to Check When Your Mclean Sewer Line Has Problems

Among the most frequent causes of sewer pipe backups is root damage. Tree roots can infiltrate pipes, slowly but surely placing pressure on pipes and then growing their way into seams. If even tiny roots can make their way into joints, they can create a dam that collects mass until the traffic comes to a complete stop. They can then continue to increase in size, over time creating breaks in the pipe. There are not many experiences that are more unpleasant than having a sewer line break in the middle of your property.

Less-common sewer-pipe crises that we see:

  • Buildup of oil, grease, or hair
  • Pipe damage
  • Badly aligned pipes
  • Backups created by solid items

If you have the least bit of backflow – into sinks, bathtubs, or even toilets – the best thing to do is to stop using water until the problem is identified and fixed. Otherwise, you risk serious flooding.

Five Star Septic Can Solve Any Household Sewer Dilemma in Va

A few last things to consider while addressing your sewer pipe problems:

  • Check whether your real estate insurance pays for sewer main line labor. Often the incident has to be proven to be an accident, as well as a sudden incidence of damage (as opposed to gradual wear and tear on your sewer pipes). Take photographs as you or your plumber discover the problem so that you have evidence to show your insurance company.
  • While you’re having work done, consider installing a “trenchless” sewer line if you don’t have one already. This innovative technology enables plumbers to remove an inner lining from your sewer pipe for repair, then slide it back into the pipe without destroying fencing or landscaping.
