You Can Depend on Our Sewer Problem Specialists
It is critical to get the proper help to repair or replace the sewer lines as soon as possible to avoid damage.

Our plumbing professionals are trained to address the following sewer plumbing problems:
  • Broken pipes: Pipes are cracked, punctured or collapsed by shifting soil, frozen ground, settling, etc.
  • Sewer blockages: Grease buildup or foreign objects restrict or prohibit proper water flow and / or cleaning of the sewer line
  • Corrosion: Pipes have deteriorated and / or broken, causing blockages in the line and restricting water flow

Thanks to modern plumbing, we essentially don't have to worry about the type of waste disposal our ancestors once did. But that doesn't mean that problems never occur. Occasionally, problems with the sewer system can result in issues in the home, including the unpleasant odors of improperly disposed waste products. At Steve's Waterworks Plumbing, we've seen and repaired nearly every sewer problem you can imagine. We've put together this list of common problems so you'll know when it's time to call for help. 

Signs You Need a Sewer Repair

Uncaught sewer problems can be costly to fix and cause extensive damage to your property. To avoid extra expense, it's good to be able to recognize the signs of sewer problems. Below are some tell-tale signs that you may need a sewer repair.

Unusual Odors

The clearest sign that your sewer system is failing is when foul odors begin to come from your drains. These can smell like the type of waste you'd expect to come from sewage, or they may smell like sulfur (think rotten eggs). These smells could indicate a break in the sewer line, letting gasses out or a blockage backing them up.

Slow Draining

Drains occasionally slow down for reasons other than sewage problems. In these cases, a plunger or drain cleaner typically resolves the problem. If a few applications of these remedies don't solve the problem, it could indicate a more serious issue. 

Gurgling Sounds

When air gets trapped in the sewer lines and suddenly released, the result is a gurgling sound coming from your toilets, drains, or pipes. If air is getting trapped in the system, it's likely the result of a clogged or otherwise compromised sewer. 

Water Pooling

Water pooling in your yard can be a symptom of a sewer line break. This is especially true if the water is pooling around areas where you know sewer lines are present. Water from the leak saturates the soil, causing excess moisture and, eventually, visible pooling.

Increased Pest Presence

You've probably heard the term sewer rat. That's because sewers are a natural attraction for pests like rats, insects, and other vermin. A breach in the sewer pipes around your home will serve the same purpose. If you see more than usual, a sewer break could be the cause.

Lush Patches in Lawn

Farmers are known to use animal manure as fertilizer. It turns out that animal waste is great for that purpose. This means that any areas where sewer lines are leaking are also dumping natural fertilizer into the ground. A beautiful patch of lawn could be hiding a more sinister problem. 

Benefits of Getting Your Sewer Repaired

Leaving a sewer problem to worsen can cause any of the symptoms above to worsen along with them. There are numerous benefits to stopping the problem as soon as it's discovered:
  • Prevents Health Hazards: Raw sewage can carry bacteria, viruses, and parasites that threaten your health. Fixing the problem eliminates them. 
  • Avoids Property Damage: As water from a sewage problem backs up into your home, it can cause significant damage to the foundation, structure, or landscaping. 
  • Reduces Unpleasant Odors: If the unpleasant odors from a sewage problem haven't started yet, they soon will. Repairing the problem prevents that.
  • Increases Efficiency: Even in the absence of severe problems, a well-maintained sewer system drains more effectively, reducing the chance that backups or overflows will eventually occur. 
  • Saves Money in the Long Run: Letting problems fester will lead to more problems. Soon, rather than fixing a simple sewer break, you're paying to repair costly home damage.
  • Environmental Protection: Proper sewer maintenance prevents sewage leaks from contaminating local waterways, keeping wildlife safe and maintaining water quality.
