These are the Spookiest Plumbing Issues

Halloween is a time for tricks, treats, and most importantly, getting spooky! For the team at Mr. Rooter Plumbing, nothing could be more frightening than terrible plumbing problems! Read on, if you dare, and discover five of the scariest issues that can occur within your plumbing.

Burst Pipes

Was that the sound of a ghoul in the night? It's worse: a burst pipe! This can occur for a variety of reasons, such as freezing temperatures, old or damaged pipes, excessive water pressure, or even tree roots growing into your pipes. A burst pipe can cause extensive damage to your home and result in costly repairs.

Slab Leaks

Another plumbing issue that is sure to scare the socks off of you is a slab leak. This is a serious problem that occurs when the water supply pipes beneath your foundation leak. This can lead to significant damage to your foundation, as well as spooky and icky mold and mildew growth. Slab leaks are often difficult to detect, which can make them even more frightening!

Damaged or Blocked Sewer Line

Your sewer line is responsible for transporting all of the wastewater from your home to the municipal sewer system. So, you can imagine the terror you'll feel if something goes wrong with it! A damaged or blocked sewer line can cause sewage to back up into your home, leading to a major mess - and a serious health hazard.

Loss of Water

This final plumbing problem is sure to give you a fright. Imagine waking up in the middle of the night to find that your taps have gone dry and there is no water coming out of them. A loss of water can be caused by a variety of factors, such as a broken water main or a problem with your home's water pump. Regardless of the cause, a loss of water is a major inconvenience - and it can be very scary!
