Sewer System Backups
Messy, smelly, and just plain disgusting—there's not much worse than a sewer system backup. When it comes to mind, most people tend to think of a catastrophic scene in which raw sewage is spilled across the floors, but that awful vision is actually the worst-case scenario.
There are many warning signs before it gets to that point, and if you know what they are, you can call in an experienced plumber to get your system under control before the worst happens. But what are the signs?
Here are some red flags to watch for:
- Nasty smells coming from your drain, or noticeable in the basement or yard
- Strange sounds such as gurgling, bubbling, or grinding coming from your drain
- Visible sewage in low-lying fixtures such as the toilet, shower, or bathtub
- No water in the toilet bowl
- Water backing up in sinks
- Wastewater pooling on the lawn
- Sudden lush spots in the grass
When you notice any of these things happening with your plumbing system, you should call premium-quality plumbing professionals immediately. Something is wrong and it needs to be addressed.
If you're dreading having your landscaping ripped apart by a huge trench to access plumbing lines and sewer pipes, don't worry! Mr. Rooter uses trenchless pipe repair techniques that eliminate the need for a costly, time-consuming, damaging trench. Trenchless repair or replacement methods include drain cleaning, Hydro jetting, pipe lining, and pipe bursting.
Water Heater Repairs and Replacement
Have you ever gotten ready for a relaxing hot shower, only to find that the water turns cold halfway through? If your heater doesn't seem to hold as much hot water as it used to, that's a sign that it's crying out for repair or needs to be replaced entirely.
Other signs include:
- Taking a long time to heat water
- Sounds such as dripping or gurgling coming from the tank
- Leaking around the tank
- Grit or sediment in your hot water
Repairs may be possible depending on the issue, but water heaters really only last about 11 to 20 years. If you know it hasn't been replaced in a couple of decades, replacement will be the solution. However, that can be a good thing—a new water heater will be much more efficient and can save you 7% to 60% of your current plumbing costs.
But what type of water heater installations should you get? It pays to consider which option will work best for your hot water needs.
Three types are:
- Conventional: a large tank continuously heats water so it's ready when you turn on the tap
- Tankless: cold water is heated inside the pipe on demand before it exits the faucet
- Hybrid: a tank system is combined with a heat pump to add efficiency
Plumbing emergencies never happen at a convenient moment. Instead, they wait until the dead of the night or the middle of a long weekend. It's not personal—but it sure can feel like it when you're struggling alone with issues such as:

- Dozens of other annoying problems
