Signs You Need Sewer Repair
Sometimes, people have sewer issues and don’t even realize it. Sewer problems can stay hidden for a while, unless you know what to look for. Here are some signs that it’s time to get yours fixed.
- Your home smells bad. If you smell sewer smells throughout your home, it’s time to have your lines looked at. Sometimes, when these lines break or get clogged, sewer gases have nowhere to go except into your home. Even if you only smell them now and then, it’s worth the time to have your sewer examined. Who knows? We may find a problem before it becomes a major issue!
- Your yard is extra green. If you’re not watering your yard and it’s not raining a lot, your grass and shrubs shouldn’t be in great shape. If they are, or if they are in certain areas, it’s time to call the plumber. Sewage often provides much needed nutrients for plants, so extra growth can be a sign that it’s escaping your pipes.
- Your yard is wet. There’s often a good amount of water that escapes from your sewer if there are holes in the pipes. This water will flood into the ground around your home. If the ground can’t absorb it, there will be inexplicable wet spots on your grass. When you see these, it’s time to call a Mount Airy MD plumber.
Sewer Repair Options
When most people think of sewer repair, they think about having their whole lawn dug up in the process. Sometimes, they even wonder if they will have to take up chunks of their sidewalk or driveway.
Fortunately, sewer repair doesn’t usually look like this anymore. This is the older, more traditional way of performing sewer repair. It generally meant digging along the sewer line until the broken place was found, even if that meant digging up an entire yard!
Now, we offer trenchless sewer repair. Instead of digging up your whole yard in Mount Airy MD, most of these repairs are done from inside your home. Your plumber will use your inside sewer access point and some technology to make the repair happen. It may involve digging one or two small holes in the yard, but it’s nothing like the digging required for a traditional sewer repair.
If you need to have your sewer looked at or you know you need a repair and you’d like to talk about the trenchless technology, give us a call. One of our skilled plumbers will come out as soon as is convenient for you and get the job done.
