Signs You Need a Sewer Repair
Sometimes, it’s hard to tell if you need a sewer repair. In fact, many homeowners in Irvine miss the signs, and end up with a much more significant repair than they would have needed had they known what to look for. Here’s what we tell people to look for when they’re assessing their need for sewer work.
- Does your home smell? Sewer smells are usually strong, distinct, and completely unpleasant. If you have a sewer smell in your home or your yard, it’s definitely time to think about a repair. Usually, the smell either means that there is a leak in one of your sewer pipes, or that the pipes are backed up and the gases that usually escape through them can’t. Either way, you’ll want to get it fixed before the smell becomes a permanent part of your home.
- Do you have frequent plumbing problems? You shouldn’t have to call a plumber more than once or twice a year. Sure, weird things happen, but if you’re calling a plumber all the time, it’s time to have your plumber take a closer look at what’s going on. Many times, the underlying cause of your plumbing difficulties is a fault in the sewer. Get that repaired, and you won’t have to call so often!
- Do you have wet spots in your yard? Low lying areas in your yard will often stay wet long after the rest has dried, but if you haven’t had any precipitation lately and your yard is still damp, it’s time to call the plumber. These damp areas can be a sign that your sewer is leaking. If the damp areas are also growing excessively well, it’s almost positive that sewage is flowing into your yard underneath what you can see.
When we come out to assess for sewer problems, we’ll ask you about all of these things. That’s why it’s a good idea for you to look for them first. While we will always check again, just to make sure, it’s helpful to us when you know what’s going on.
