Signs You Have a Sewer System Backup

We recommend looking over the following sewer system backup signs to help you identify them and reach out for professional plumbing service:

  • Water puddles forming around your basement floor drain
  • Multiple drain backups
  • Your shower, toilet, or sink drain has water backing up
  • Any drain backup combination that includes your toilet

Tree Roots Invading Your Sewer Line

If you have leaks or condensation forming on your pipes, these problems can attract tree roots seeking nourishment. Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Winston Salem's expert service professionals have ample experience dealing with tree roots and subsequent plumbing issues. We've worked on properties where roots travel far through the soil and easily invade sewage systems by growing through tiny pipe section cracks, separations, and small holes. After discovering a water source, a tree will start increasing root growth in that moist or wet area. As roots continue infiltrating your pipes and making holes larger, they clog your sewer system and then burst your pipe. You might be aware of obvious signs of a sewer line problem, such as toilet or bathtub sewage backups, improperly draining tubs, toilets making gurgling sounds, or finding no water in your toilet bowl. If you notice any of these signs, we offer many industry solutions, including the following options:

  • Hydro jetting – Our service professionals carry out this long-term solution using pressurized water jets to clean all debris and blockage out of your pipe by thoroughly scouring your sewer line. This method eliminates debris, tree roots, and grease buildup.
  • Rooter work and drain cleaning – We start this technique by punching through tree roots to clear your sewer line and get it functional again. After clearing the sewer line, we assess how extensive your tree root problem is and advise you on permanent solutions.
  • Maintenance – Our service professionals can continuously inspect and clean your drains to remove grease buildup and household debris through our convenient plans. With our maintenance options, we also eliminate tree roots from unlined pipes before they cause clogs.

When to Call Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Winston Salem

You might assume a drain problem is an isolated occurrence that will resolve itself, but Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Winston Salem strongly recommends contacting us to avoid raw sewage backups and other significant problems. We typically start with a cable device or special drain auger to attempt to open your drain. However, we have more advanced methods available if these tools can't open your drain. Tree roots may crush your drain or sewer pipe, and they can make their way into the cracks and joints in your pipes. Other situations leading to sewer system issues include sewer blockages from thick toilet paper, built-up discarded food or garbage disposal waste, hair, sanitary products, or soap residue. If you simply have a clogged drain, we can work quickly and thoroughly to clear it.
