Sewer System Backup Warning Signs

Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Josephine & Jackson Counties understands you can’t always tell when your sewer system is backing up until the issue worsens and develops into a messy and costly sewage disaster. Below, you can review warning signs of a sewer system backup to help you identify this issue in your home:

  • Multiple drain backups
  • Water backing up in your sink, shower, or toilet drain
  • Water puddles forming around your basement floor drain
  • Strong sewage smell is given off by areas or drains outside your home
  • Any drain backup combinations involving your toilet
  • Gurgling noises coming from your toilets or drains

Tree Roots Intruding Home’s Your Sewer Line

If leaks or condensation are issues on your pipes, they can attract tree roots seeking a water source. Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Josephine & Jackson Counties has expert service professionals with ample experience resolving sewer system issues caused by tree roots. We’ve dealt with tree roots stretching across a home’s property and easily invading its sewage system by slipping into tiny pipe section holes, cracks, and separations. After discovering a water source, the tree starts increasing its root growth to take advantage of that area’s moisture. As roots continue to grow into the pipes, they make small holes bigger, clog your system, and eventually burst your pipe. This issue displays several signs, such as sewage backups in your toilet or bathtub, no water in your toilet bowl, gurgling sounds coming from your toilet, and tubs not draining properly. If you notice any of these signs, our company can resolve them with various solutions. The following are examples of reliable solutions to sewer system problems:

  • Pipelining – Using a sleeve to line and seal your sewer pipe permanently resolves sewer line damage. This special sleeve resolves water leakage and may only need to line the problematic pipe section. We use this method to avoid trenching and destroying walls and other structures.
  • Hydro jetting – Our service professionals offer a long-term solution by using pressurized water jets to clean all debris and blockages out of your pipe. We eliminate debris, grease buildup, and tree roots by scouring your sewer line.
  • Rooter work and drain cleaning – We start this process by clearing your sewer line by punching through a tree root, effectively restoring its functionality. After clearing your pipe, we assess your tree root problem's extent to advise you on permanent solutions.
  • Maintenance – Our service professionals can continuously inspect and clean your drain with plans to clear grease buildup and other household debris. This solution also rids your unlined pipes of tree roots before they cause clogs.
  • Pipe bursting – This service is another permanent fix, breaking apart your existing PVC, cast-iron, or clay sewer and installing a new one using hydraulics.

When to Call Mr. Rooter Plumbing for Help

Your drain problem might mistakenly appear as an isolated incident. However, Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Josephine & Jackson Counties advises homeowners to reach out to us to avoid significant problems like a raw sewage backup. We typically start by using a special drain auger or cable device to try to open your drain, but we can enlist more advanced methods these tools don’t let us open your drain. Your sewer or drainpipe might have substantial damage from tree roots, and they can find and slip through the cracks and joints in your pipes. Other examples of sewer system threats include thick toilet paper, soap residue, hair, sanitary products, and built-up discarded food or garbage disposal waste blocking your sewer. If a clogged drain is your only problem, we can complete quick and efficient solutions to clear it.
