Signs of Sewer Line Issues
Besides the visible signs of unsanitary sewage backups and blockages, not to mention the smell of sewer odors, what are some other signs that you may have a sewer problem? Knowing what to look for can ensure you get sewer line service before there’s a disaster. Look out for things like:
- Mold and mildew growth
- Slow draining
- A high volume of lush, green grass
- Foundation cracks and sinkholes
- Pooling septic waste
Undetected sewer line issues may result in your foundation falling into a sinkhole if the problem is not found and treated quickly. It’s one thing for your toilet to be stopped up, but for your whole house to fall due to cracks in its foundation, is something else entirely! You could be looking at considerable property damages.
Sewer problems pose larger threats than you realize. Some even create rodent and insect infestations, and you can also breathe in harmful diseases that are transmitted by dust in your home. It’s important to act immediately if your home is showing or developing any of these symptoms.
How Inspections and Repairs Are Performed
In order to properly inspect and detect sewer problems, G.F. Bowman, Inc. performs a sewer camera inspection. We use sewer cameras in order to see what’s causing the blockage for accurate results without needing to dig up your yard.
The sewer camera is tiny and flexible. We attach it to a snake-like cable that our plumbers insert through the sewer pipe until the clog is reached. Located on the camera is a radio transmitter that records the physical location of the line and its depth from the surface. From the data collected, our plumber will know where the blockage is and how to address the problem.
Using sewer cameras can save you time and money because we’re able to see the problem without the need for excavation. Once found, we can offer you a long-term solution, like repair, that’s tailored to the issue you’re facing.
The health of your pipes could be to blame for your sewer line issues. Be sure to ask our staff if whole-home repiping can help your situation.
