How Screwed Up is Your Sewer System

  1. When your sewer is kept at optimum capacity, you can expect a steady system that will stand years and even decades of use, but when you take no notice of it, you’ll end up screwing up its function and reducing its lifespan. To put it simply, what you do can make or break your system. Why did we say this? Keep reading on to learn the many ways you can imperil your system and the ways you can help it reach its expected lifespan. 

Signs Your Sewer is Screwed Up

  1. 1. You can’t clear your toilet and the water is backing up
  2. 2. All the drains in your home are refusing to empty up
  3. 3. You’re bathing with ankle-deep wastewater
  4. 4. You notice stagnant water in your yard that seems not to go away
  5. 5. There’s an unexpected indentation in your garden
  6. 6. Rodents and other sewer pests are making an appearance
  7. 7. There’s an obnoxious smell coming from your drains
  8. 8. You notice musty and moldy spots in random areas of your home
  9. 9. These problems are a result of years of use or because of a poor plumbing habit.
  10.  
  11. If any or all of these situations are happening in your home, it’s time to call the sewer pipe professionals right away. It only means that your sewer is nearing its end of lifespan.

Things You Must Be Doing That Imperils Your System

  1. Using your drains like a waste basket – Your drains can only handle certain things without a problem. Even your garbage disposal has its limitations. If you toss the things listed below down your sink, it wouldn’t take long for clog problems to trouble you. Your drain connects to your sewer and it ensures that whatever it takes in will travel down the sewer line and be directed to the city’s sewage treatment center. But if there’s something wrong with it, this process is disrupted and there’s no way you’d be able to use your drains again until a plumber will come by to inspect and fix your sewer for good.
  2.  
  3. Flushing just about anything in the toilet – Certain things belong to its proper place, same goes with your waste. The rule of the thumb in your toilet must be, whatever comes out of your rear end and your front must go down. Other than that must go to your waste bin. But if you’re also flushing the “others” into the toilet, then you’re in trouble. It’s time to change that habit because you’re just putting your toilet in danger for immediate clogs which can make further flushing impossible. 
  4.  
      1. Things you should not under any circumstances toss into your drains or toilet
      2.  
      3. • Stringy and greasy waste like cooking oil, dental floss, and hair
      4. • Stuff that doesn’t break down like coffee, tea bags, and eggshells
      5. • Hygiene products like cotton buds, baby wipes, tampons, condoms, nappies, etc.
  5.  
  6. Reaching to drain chemicals to clear clogs – Sometimes, the remedy that you think will fix your problem for good is the one that caused irreparable damage in your plumbing. This is especially true with the effect of chemical drain cleaners. The harsh chemicals it contains can crack pipes, porcelain toilets, and sinks, rather than solve the problem because of the heat it gives off. If you don’t want to cause harm to your sewer system, don’t make it your first and only remedy to solve clogs. Keep in mind that there’s no sturdy plumbing when it comes to harsh chemicals. It’s best to fend off using this once and for all before it’s too late.
  7.  
  8. If you’re not doing anything about the tree roots in your yard – Sprawling trees is a great addition to anyone’s landscape but when you have the kind that grows massively and in great lengths, you must do something about it before it finds your sewer line. The roots of any trees do not make good friends with sewer lines especially when you have old plumbing or it has leaks. Roots can penetrate your sewer line even through tiny leaks and gaps until it finally breaks it down. So, give yourself a huge favor by contacting a blocked drain professional to cut those roots to avoid costly damage in your home.
  9.  
  10. When you keep resorting to DIY fixes – There’s nothing wrong with fixing simple plumbing problems yourself, like simple clogs. But, those fixes that you did can also make simple fixes turn into going on with your home’s plumbing, but without proper knowledge, the right tools, and experience, you might misdiagnose the root of the problem. There’s also a great chance that you might spend money on the plumbing parts you think need fixing, but find that didn’t solve your problem. Advising the professional plumber, like the sewer pipe relining specialist, eliminates the guesswork at what’s really wrong, so you can get your plumbing fixed correctly the first time.
  11.  
  12. Waiting to fix a clog – Whether you’re a busy person or not, it’s important to be on top of every plumbing problem, especially when you notice signs of sewer clogs. This is a problem that you can’t just assume will resolve itself because it can easily escalate into a leaking situation or burst pipe. As soon as you find out your drain is having a hard time emptying the water up, call the plumber right away. Sometimes there’s more to clogs than you think that only those with trained eyes can properly diagnose and fix.
