SEWER LINE REPAIR ATLANTA
While most people prefer not to talk openly about their sewage and sewer repair services, sewer line repair is not a dirty word. If you come home one day to find your basement flooded with sewage, sewer line repair will be your saving grace. Sewer line damage is usually extensive by the time it is even noticeable. You rely on your sewer lines to rid your home of sewage and wastewater. If not for sewer lines, most of the appliances we use every day would not be able to properly function. Sewer lines are vital to the function of your plumbing system and thus of your home and family.
Severe sewer line damage will put a halt to the easy and effective flow of sewage from your home and it can also interrupt your family’s schedule, as repair will have to be made quickly. In order to avoid this, it is best to look out for signs of sewer line damage so that it can be caught and repaired before the damage is too severe.
One tell-tale sign that you need sewer line repair is a sewer line clog or other sewage backup. When your sewer line clogs and leaks, water is unable to travel down the line. The longer the clog stays in place, the more sever the backup becomes. Pressure can cause cracks in the already compromised sewer line. Because the toilets in your home have a direct connection to the sewer line, they are usually the first fixture to show signs of the backup.
Signs will appear by way of bubbling or gurgling in the toilet. The gurgling will most likely occur while the shower or sink are in use. Slow draining in the bathtubs, sinks, and showers is also a sign. The slow draining will increase in severity as time goes on. As soon as you begin to notice slow draining, gurgling, or bubbling, call a plumber immediately. Delaying drain cleaning or repair can cause a widespread backup of sewage which will increase and spread the damage.
Another obvious sign that you need traditional or trenchless sewer repair is the smell. When sewage does not effectively pass through your pipes, it lingers down below your home.
Rotting sewage will soon gather a strong, horrific odor without sewer repair. You will be able to smell the sewage within the walls of your home, but it may be difficult to attribute the smell to sewer line damage.
Sewer line breaks allow sewage to leak into your yard if sewer pipe repair does not happen immediately. When this happens, you will face the smell of sewage outside of your home as well. Puddles of standing water will likely form. Your grass may grow exceptionally well in this area.
Sewer line repair can be done with a variety of materials. The most common today is PVC. PVC is a strong plastic that does not rust and can usually withstand root penetration. On top of that, PVC is inexpensive and easy for sewer repair contractors to install.
