Foul sewage odors

Infestation by rodents and other pests

Broken sewer lines provide the kind of food that rodents and other pests crave and if you notice the presence of such pests on your property you should get the message that your system is not working as it should. Apart from the health risks brought by such pests, you risk incurring heavy repair or replacement bills if you do not take early remedial action.

Standing water on the compound, flooding in the basement

Unless your region has experienced a downpour, the presence of standing water in your yard should send a warning that you sewer system has a problem. You should also get concerned if you notice flooding in your basement or the collection of water near your property’s foundation.

Slow draining sinks, toilets and bathtubs

How long does water take to drain from your sinks, toilets and bathtubs? Slow draining is usually indicative of clogs in the plumbing system and also calls for immediate attention as it could become a major problem if not addressed early enough.

There are many other signs that should make you seek pro plumbing help if you are to avoid an emergency in the future. You should therefore be alert to leaking water pipes, the development of mold in the home or a sudden rise in your water bill as all these indicate that there is plenty of water that either goes to waste or is never properly channeled through the sewer system.

Should  you repair or replace your sewer line?

Once you discover that you have a problem with your sewer system, the next thing you have to think about is how to fix it. It should be emphasized here that the ideal action to take will usually be beyond the knowledge and capability of an untrained person.

Correct diagnosis is extremely important and plumbing pros have the knowledge and tools to do this. Rather than guess what the problem might be (as most people who try to address such problems the DIY way,  pros will inspect the system using sewer cameras to accurately identify the problem and come up with a solution.

Thinking they are saving money, untrained people might also consider patching up the system but in many cases this might only prove a stop-gap measure. In many cases, a patching up job might prove useless after a few months in which case you’ll have to pay to get the job done again. In such a situation, sewer line replacement would prove more prudent than repair.

For peace of mind, it is highly recommended that you leave the decision on whether to repair or replace your sewer lines to plumbing pros at Scott’s Plumbing.
