Sewer repair is one of the most important plumbing services that you can get for your home. When you have a problem with your sewer system, you will most likely discover it because of strong odors, sewage coming up through the drains or puddles of sewage in your lawn and landscaping beds. The longer you let the problem fester, the more problems you are likely to experience.
Fischer Plumbing offers a number of different sewer repair solutions. This includes clearing out sewer blocks as well as repairing sewer lines. If you ignore a block, it won’t be long before you will need a new sewer line because the stress will start to crack the existing lines, causing a number of problems that you should try to avoid at all costs.
In some cases, a video camera will be used inside the sewer pipe. This will help to diagnose the problem. Sometimes the camera feed will show a collapse or break in the pipe. Other times it will show that there is simply something blocking the pipe, preventing its normal flow. If the block can be removed, often that will be enough to get the sewer system back up and running.
In households with small children, a blockage can be due to toys or other objects being flushed down the toilet. As it travels through the pipes, it will become lodged at one point or another and prevent waste from going by. It will continue to back up until the sewage comes out wherever it can, which is usually up through the drains in your home.
The landscaping in your yard may also affect the sewer pipes. One of the most common reasons for a cracked pipe is tree roots. Those large trees providing shade in your yard may be responsible for the sewer repairs that are needed. Clay pipes are most likely to experience these problems but other pipes can also crack or break with a tree root pressing against them.
When you call us, we will send out a technician to find out what is going on with your sewer system. It may or may not be a quick fix but we will work diligently to get to the bottom of the problem. Once the actual problem is known, the repairs can begin.
The moment you see something out of place with your drains, whether it’s a back flow problem or it’s an odor, you want to make a phone call to have a plumber come out and diagnose the problem. The longer you wait, the more strain you could put on your system. Sewer repairs can be very expensive if you don’t catch them early enough.
