Nobody wants to deal with a backed-up sewer line during sweltering summer heat. It’s a good idea to keep an eye on the health of your sewer system to help avoid expensive repairs.
There are steps you can take as a homeowner to check for trouble. Installing drain catches can help prevent hair and other debris from clogging your system. Also, check the speed of draining. If water drains slowly, you try to snake the drain but avoiding using drain cleaner. The chemicals can do more harm than good. If all else fails, call a professional plumber to help.
Other problems to look for: Check for issues flushing the toilet or for pooling water in your yard. You won’t have any trouble noticing the worst kind of sewer problems, though. Once everything backs up, your nose will tell you it’s time to call in the professionals. The experts at Petri Plumbing can troubleshoot sewer issues, quickly diagnosing any problems, and repair or replace pipes and sewer lines.
If your sewer is backing up or drains are clogged, Petri Plumbing offer video sewer inspections to determine the exact problem. Using a very small camera, our technicians can visually explore the whole length of the drain pipe. This inspection will uncover exactly what is going on within the line and identify the source of the problem without the costly nuisance of having to dig up pipes.
Problems with sewer lines can result from a range of causes —there could be build-ups of hair or grease or organic matter. A child or inattentive adult could have flushed a whole variety of sewer-unfriendly objects from toys to sanitary wipes. Our technicians can clear out obstructions from your sewer lines or replace broken or worn-out pipes.
