Sewer Repair

10 Warning Signs You Need Sewer Repair/Replacement/Maintenance

Most of the times you do not need to replace the whole sewer, most sewers can be restored to full function with spot repair. Once we find the problem spot that is causing the problem, we can repair it and return it to it’s original capacity size. When Quality Plumbing Services performs excavation/sewer repair we’ll pull the necessary permits and call JULIE to verify underground utility locations. We’ll secure the work area with barricades and fencing, and we lay plywood down to protect your property.

We follow OSHA guidelines for trenching and excavation, and all removed dirt is put immediately into our dump trucks and never stored or laid on site. Our licensed technicians will dispose of all waste following strict EPA guidelines at qualified and licensed locations. The repaired pipe is bedded in crush stone and back filled 1 to 2 feet from grade with crushed stone and then topped off with fresh black dirt . Depending on the time of year, we can provide seed, sod or mulch to restore the property back to it’s original state. Concrete and asphalt restoration is also available. When the job is done, we try to make it look like we were never there.

Here are some signs you need sewer repair: 

  1. Unwelcome Visitors – First and foremost, if you notice a sudden influx of things such as bugs, mice, or even rats on your property, you just might need to replace or repair your sewer system. This is due to the fact that a broken of malfunctioning sewer line can attract these pests. Instead of the exterminator, if you notice an unexplained increase in rodents on your property, it may be time to call a plumber. 
  2. Sink Holes  – Pits or sinkholes appearing near foundation could be  a sure sign of damage in your pipes causing excess water to be soaked into the earth washing the soil away.  If you noticed any sinkholes hear your foundation or on your property, consult with Quality Plumbing Services before it is too late. 
  3. Sewer Has Not Been Maintained:Sewer-lines should be rodded between 1 -2 years depending on condition and usage.  If they have not been, call the experts of Quality Plumbing Services do an assessment to get you on a regular maintenance schedule. 
  4. Foul Smelling  Water – One of the most obvious and unpleasant side effects of a malfunctioning sewer system is an offensive odor that seems to be stemming from foul smelling water coming from your pump pit. You should never be able to smell the raw sewage as it travels from your home. If you notice a foul order coming from the lawn or other areas of the home it is definitely time to consult with a professional. 
  5. Various Plumbing Fixtures Clogged – Although drains obviously get clogged from time to time, having multiple clogged drains for an unexplained reason can be a sign that your sewer system needs repair or replacing. This is due to the fact that failing sewage systems have the tendency to become clogged in areas unreachable by the average homeowner. Rather than attempting to fix these issues yourself, consult with a plumbing professional you can trust. 
  6. Unexplained Gurgling Noise Coming from Drain – Have you noticed noises coming from your drain or pipes? This is definitely a sign that your sewage system needs some special attention. A well-functioning pipe system will make very little noise, if at all. If you can hear water struggling to make it down the pipes, this is a sign that you may have some sort of blockage or another issue that requires maintenance.
  7. Varying Levels of Toilet Water – Although toilets can be a bit unpredictable, if you notice that the water levels seem to be randomly rising or falling, this is a sign that your sewage system made need repair. Especially in the case in which your toilet does this repeatedly without being used, consult with a plumbing professional if you have concerns about your toilet water. 
  8. Intrusion of Tree Roots – You may or may not have noticed, but your pipes can easily become clogged by tree roots. One of the most common causes of sewage system-related issues, if you believe you have tree roots in your pipes, it may be time to consult with a professional. 
  9. Intrusion of roots from bushes  – Tree headaches can be a problem, but most people don’t realize the roots from bushes can be more troublesome than tree roots. The roots from bushes grow much denser and faster than the roots of trees, causing havoc on anything in it’s way. 
  10. Cracked or Broken Pipes – Lastly, broken or cracked pipes are a telltale sign that you may need to repair or replace your sewage system. No matter if the damage has occurred due to wear and tear or if something else damaged it if you have pipes that are cracked or broken, it is likely time to invest in a new sewage system.
