Your water and sewer mains are incredibly important components of your home. Your water line brings fresh water into your home while your sewer line carries away waste water. You use these pipes every single day. When they break, leak or crack, it can be a huge ordeal to fix them because they are buried so far underground. This also makes it hard to quickly determine if they have a leak. Here are some of the most common signs that your sewer or water main is broken.
As the water from your cracked sewer and water main starts to leak into the soil under your yard, it will start to saturate the ground. This can sometimes form a soggy spot in your yard. Because the pipes are buried in the ground, by the time you notice the soggy spot the leak will probably have been active for some time. Call a Rocky River plumber right away.
Depending upon the type of dirt that is in your yard, the water might not absorb into the dirt as well. It could actually cause the dirt to expand and form a dome or mound in your yard. This is what can cause slab leaks and cracks in your home’s foundation.
If you start to notice the smell of sewage around your house, you may want to start worrying about your sewer main. If it starts leaking, you’re going to have waste water sitting around your property. Also, if you notice water leaks in weird places where there aren’t any pipes, it could also be an indication that you have a pipe leak.
