Have you heard your toilet making gurgling noises? Is your plumbing draining slowly? Is there a smelly sinkhole in your yard? Is water or sewage backing up into your house?
This is every homeowner’s worst nightmare, and it always happens at the worst possible moment; a holiday gathering, while away on vacation, etc.
Water and sewer lines can fail for a number of reasons.
The most common causes of sewer line breakage or clogging include tree roots, accumulation of grease and muck, rot, collapse, the repeatedly snaking pipes. Many sewer lines also are older clay tile that can easily crack and break.
Because these lines are in the ground and are subject to the elements, materials like metal water lines can easily freeze, burst, and be affected by other environmental conditions.
Having reliable sewer and water lines serving your house is critical to the health and safety of your home. Because these lines are underground, you can’t simply sneak a peek at every inch of the line whenever you want. But detecting the previously mentioned signs and contacting a professional is the best way to address your water and sewer line problems.
