A sewer trap is a fixture in your main drain line that prevents sewer gases from entering the home. Located downstream of a home’s main plumbing components, it works by holding water in a reservoir, which stops gases from moving up. Like all plumbing fixtures, it can malfunction or wear out over time, requiring professional repairs from a licensed plumber.
Signs of Sewer Trap Damage
Sewer trap damage can be difficult to diagnose at first, as the symptoms can often be mistaken for a drainage issue further up the plumbing line. Backed-up sinks, toilets, and other fixtures can be due to a simple clog, or they can be the result of damage to the sewer trap. While many plumbers are forced to perform time-consuming (and expensive) troubleshooting measures, Mr. Rooter Plumbing makes the process simple.
We can perform a video inspection that quickly rules out other problems before diagnosing a sewer trap issue.
Fixing Sewer Trap Damage
Sewer traps are designed to be a replaceable component of your home’s drainage system. Sewer traps can generally be accessed via the sewer pit in your home’s basement or yard - fixing the damage is frequently as simple as swapping out the damaged component for a new one. However, during the process, due diligence is required to rule out any other additional problems with your drain line and to ensure sewage does not accidentally flow back up into your home plumbing.
