Signs of a Residential Sewer System Backup

We know you have a busy life and may not know when you are dealing with a sewer system problem until the issue becomes more obvious and expensive. Our team wants to help you catch sewer system problems early while they are easier and more affordable to fix. To help you do that, we’ve prepared a list of some common warning signs that you have a sewer system backup:

  • Multiple drain backups in your home
  • Pools of water around your basement floor drain
  • Strong odors coming from your home’s drains or outdoor areas
  • Water backing up from showers, toilets, or sink drains
  • Gurgling noises from your drains or toilets
  • Drain backup combinations involving a toilet

Comprehensive Sewer Line Tree Root Intrusion Solutions

Tree roots are often the enemy of your home’s sewer pipes. When those pipes have leaks or condensation, tree roots will find them while searching for nourishment. Tree roots tend to slip into sewage systems through tiny pipe section cracks, holes, or separations. After tree roots find a water source, root growth will increase. Once additional roots infiltrate your pipes, those holes get larger and clog your system before they eventually burst your pipe. Some signs that you may have tree roots intruding your sewer lines include gurgling noises from your toilets, backups in your toilets or bathtubs, a lack of water in your toilet bowl, and bathtubs that do not drain properly. Our professional plumbers offer the following solutions to tree root invasions:

  • Pipelining – Our plumbers will resolve sewer line damage with this permanent solution that lines and seals sewer pipes with a sleeve that eliminates water leakage. Pipelining is an excellent solution to avoid trenching without the need to demolish any walls or other structures.
  • Hydro Jetting – We use this long-term solution to clean pipes with pressurized water jets. Our professional plumbers will thoroughly scour your sewer line to remove debris, grease build-up, and tree roots.
  • Maintenance – Preventative maintenance is one of the best ways to save money, time, and hassle. Our plumbers offer plumbing and sewer inspections and drain cleaning services to help prevent grease and other debris from building up in your pipes. Sewer line maintenance can help avoid tree roots that wreak havoc on pipes.
  • Pipe Bursting – A permanent solution, pipe bursting uses hydraulics to break apart your existing piping, whether made of clay, PVC, or cast iron. The new seamless pipe will be installed and solve your problems.
  • Rooter Work & Drain Cleaning – Our experts start by punching through tree roots, clearing out your sewer line, and restoring its functionality. From there, we check the extent of your tree root issues and recommend permanent solutions.

Warning Signs of a Septic System Backup

Septic tanks can back up and create problems beyond clogged toilets and backed-up sinks.

When we fix your backup before completing stoppage forms, you’re less likely to suffer from system-wide problems. Don’t avoid having your sewers cleaned out because you might end up with costly damage and property contamination. Be aware of the following septic system backup warning signs to help you catch problems during the early stages so you can contact us:

  • Toilets that drain and flush slowly
  • Black liquid with a foul odor in your home’s drains or toilets
  • Multiple drains running slowly
  • Foul odors around your house from incorrect ventilation or septic system failure

  • Noticeably green grass on top of your septic system, even during a hot and dry summer
