Your sewer and drain systems are very important. They dispose of wastewater, remove organic waste quickly and efficiently from your home, and prevent the contamination between supply and waste systems. Keep them free and clear of debris and buildup is the only way to ensure the longevity and performance of your home plumbing. But, occasionally, as with any other system, they will need repair. On the whole, recognizing sewer and drain problems is not as difficult as other plumbing problems, like slow or hidden leaks. Nevertheless, they are not always so straightforward as a clogged drain or wet spots in your backyard. For professional assistance with your sewer and drains, call Pompeii’s today.
Here are some of the most common sewer and drain problems in Cleveland:
- Clogged drain. Whether by the accumulation of organic matter over a long period of time, or by foreign object, your drains can get clogged from time to time. While most clogs can be handled by the homeowners, there are some that are deep within the drainage system, or beyond the reach of the plunger.
- Sewer drain clog. This is typically considered a plumbing emergency. Because the water cannot go into your septic tank or to your municipal waste management system, the wastewater will begin to come back up through the drains. There are several warning signs: multiple clogged fixtures, strange noises when you flush the toilet or run the sink. If you think you have a sewer drain clog, don’t use any water and call a plumber immediately.
- Root penetration. The roots of trees are powerful. If you have lots of trees in the area near your sewer line, there’s a chance that one of the roots could penetrate the line and rupture it. If you notice wet spots in the yard, or a bad odor, your sewer line may be in need of repair.
Whatever the problem, repairing your sewer and drain systems is important for the comfort and hygiene of your home. If you notice a problem, don’t wait to call for professional help. For sewer and drain repair in Cleveland, call Pompeii’s Plumbing & Heating today!
