Sewer System Backup Warning Signs
Mr. Rooter Plumbing of the Twin Cities understands it’s not always
obvious when you have a sewer system backup until it grows into an expensive
sewage disaster. We’ve described warning signs below to help you
identify when you have a sewer system backup:
- Multiple drain backups
- Pools of water around your basement floor drain
- Water backup from your shower, toilet, or sink drain
- Any combination of drain backups involving your toilet
- Strong sewage odor coming from drains or areas outside your home
- Gurgling sounds coming from your toilet or drains.
Tree Root Intrusions in Your Sewer Line
If your pipes have leaks or condensation, these issues can attract tree
roots looking for nourishment. Mr. Rooter Plumbing of the Twin Cities
has expert plumbing technicians with experience dealing with tree roots.
We’ve seen roots traveling far through the ground and easily slipping
into sewage systems through tiny pipe section separations, cracks, and
small holes. After the roots discover water, the tree starts increasing
root growth in that area. As more roots infiltrate the pipes and make
holes bigger, they clog your system before bursting your pipe. You might
notice signs like sewage backups in your toilet or bathtub, tubs not draining
properly, gurgling sounds coming from your toilet, or no water in your
toilet bowl. If these signs occur, we offer various solutions, such as
Pipelining – We permanently resolve sewer line damage by lining and sealing
your sewer pipe with a sleeve. This sleeve eliminates water leakage, and
we may only line the troublesome pipe section. Using this method avoids
trenching and demolishing walls and other structures.
Hydro jetting – If you need a long-term solution, our technician can use pressurized
water jets to clean your pipe. We thoroughly scour your sewer line to
eliminate tree roots, debris, and grease buildup.
Rooter work and drain cleaning – First, we punch through a tree root to clear your sewer line and
restore its functionality. After that, we check your tree root problem's
extent and recommend permanent solutions.
Maintenance – Our technicians offer continuing inspection and drain cleaning
plans to keep household debris like grease buildup at bay. This service
also eliminates tree roots from unlined pipes before these roots cause clogs.
Pipe bursting – This option is another permanent fix, using hydraulics to break
apart your current clay, cast iron, or PVC sewer pipe while installing
a new seamless pipe.
When to Call Mr. Rooter Plumbing of the Twin Cities
You might think your drain problem is an isolated incident, but Mr. Rooter
Plumbing of the Twin Cities urges you to contact us to prevent a raw sewage
backup or another significant problem. We generally try to open your drain
using a cable device or special drain auger. We can utilize more advanced
methods if we can't open your drain using these tools. Tree roots might
have crushed your drain pipe or sewer pipe, and they can find their way
into pipes through cracks and joints. Other cases include sewer blockages
from built-up discarded food or garbage disposal waste, soap residue,
thick toilet paper, sanitary products, or hair. If your problem is simply a
, we can clear it quickly and efficiently.
