Common Signs of Residential Sewer System Backups

At Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Columbus, we understand that homeowners often don’t realize they’re dealing with a sewer system back-up until it becomes an expensive problem to fix. Some of the most common signs that indicate it’s time to call our service professionals for an inspection of their plumbing system include:

  • Water pooling around your basement floor drain
  • Multiple drains in your home backing up
  • Toilets, showers, and sinks backing up
  • Strong, foul odors coming from your home’s drains or outside areas
  • Drain backups involving a toilet
  • Gurgling or bubbling sounds coming from drains or toilets

Reliable & Effective Sewer Line Tree Root Intrusion Solutions

The underground pipes that are part of your home's plumbing system are vulnerable to being invaded by tree roots. Roots can easily slip into the tiny cracks, seams, and sections of your pipes, searching for nourishment. Their growth continues to increase, eventually damaging or bursting your pipes. Some common signs you’re experiencing tree root intrusion include your toilets or bathtubs backing up, gurgling noises coming from your toilets, bathtubs not draining properly, or a lack of water in your toilet bowl. Our service professionals offer the following solutions for residential tree root intrusion:

  • Hydro Jetting – This highly effective solution utilizes high-pressure streams of water to thoroughly blast away any tree roots, debris, or grease build-up from your sewer line.
  • Pipelining – Our team can effectively resolve sewer line damage permanently by lining and sealing sewer pipes using a sleeve to eliminate water leaks. Pipelining is an effective solution that avoids digging trenches, so there’s no need to tear up your property.
  • Maintenance – One of the best ways to avoid sewer line damage is by scheduling preventative sewer line maintenance services with the team at Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Columbus. We’ll thoroughly inspect your drains and clean them to ensure they’re kept clear of any grease build-up or debris.
  • Rooter Work & Drain Cleaning – Our rooter work services involve punching through tree roots to clear out your sewer line while restoring its functionality. Then, our team will inspect the extent of the tree root intrusion problem and recommend permanent solutions.
  • Pipe Bursting – We use hydraulics as an effective, permanent solution. We can break apart your current piping and install a new seamless pipe in the old one's place.

Backed Up Sewer System Warning Signs

Your home's septic tank can back up and result in various problems that extend far beyond clogged toilets or backed-up sinks. Our service professionals can tackle these issues quickly, but it’s crucial to contact us as soon as you notice there’s a problem. Allowing us to resolve your backup before more damage occurs can help you avoid system-wide plumbing problems. Putting off sewer backup cleaning services can result in expensive property damage and contamination. The following septic system backup warning signs can help you catch a problem early on:

  • Foul-smelling, black liquid in your home’s toilets or drains
  • Toilets flushing and draining slowly
  • Foul odors around the house
  • Multiple drains are running slowly
  • Weeds or algae is found growing in a pond near your property (can be caused by septic waste discharge)
