Tampa Sewer Repair
A hassle-free sewer line is important to all homeowners. So if you notice a damage to your home’s sewer line somewhere, then you need sewer repair as soon as possible.
If you let a simple sewer problem remain unfixed, you may experience your sewer line collapsing or building up too much blockage in the long run.
This will lead to more repairs and can cause severe damage to your entire home. If you notice you have a slow drain, or smell gas or a horrid smell coming from your foundation, or notice any leaks in your yard, it might be time to call a plumber to repair your sewer line. At United Plumbing & Drain we ensure that every plumbing job is done properly and promptly. Call us at (866) 980-2873 for a free sewer repair estimate.
When Should I Repair My Sewer Line
So when will you know that it’s time for your sewer line for a repair? Here are 6 signs to watch for.
- Slow drain. Have you observed that water in your sinks, toilets and bathtub take a long time to go down the drain? If this happens, then you might be due for a sewer repair. A slow drain may be due to a clogged pipe, which in turn may be caused by cracks in the pipe or a variety of things such as tree roots and other objects like sanitary wipes.
- Foul smell or sewer gas odor. Wondering where that foul-smelling odor is coming from? This might be a tell-tale sign that there is a crack somewhere in your sewer line. A functional sewer should be sealed airtight, therefore smelling a foul odor or a sewer gas odor will indicate that you need to have your sewer line repaired.
- Presence of lush patches of grass. Sewage waste makes a great fertilizer, so when you notice your lawn is particularly green, that may be due to a leaking sewage. While it may be good for your lawn, it’s bad news for your home so you need your sewer to be fixed before it causes further damage.
- Cracks found in the foundation. An unfixed damaged sewer will eventually lead to structural damages such as cracks in the foundation. It may also develop sinkholes since the damaged sewer line consistently saturates the ground. If you’re beginning to experience these problems, have your sewer repair right away.
- Accumulation of septic water. If you happen to find pools of standing septic water inside or outside your home, this may be due to a broken septic tank, a clogged drain or a crack in the main line. All of these clues will make you decide that you’re in need of a septic repair.
- Mold build up. The presence of molds could also be a sign of a damaged sewer line behind your walls, so having your sewer fixed should be a good idea to avoid any health hazards in the future.
Sewer Repair Options
Once you determine the need for your sewer line to be repaired, you can now decide what kind of sewer repair is right for your home. There are two ways to fix a broken sewer line:
Traditional sewer repair Tampa
Plumbing technicians use a backhoe to dig a trench that they will use to get to your main sewer line. This can only be done if the plumbers have located the source of the problem and the need to replace the entire sewer line is required.
Trenchless sewer repair Tampa
This can be accomplished by initially using a sophisticated camera to be inserted into the sewer line to inspect the inner walls of the pipe. This means that digging up yards will not be required anymore. Once the plumbers identify the problem, they can start fixing it in a less invasive way. This kind of repair is faster and cheaper than the traditional sewer repair. However, it may not be attainable in all circumstances.
