Trenchless sewer repair is a reliable alternative to traditional sewer repair techniques that were much more costly and invasive. With trenchless sewer repair, your plumber no longer has to dig up wide swaths of your landscaping in order to access your sewer lines . Instead, through a small opening, your plumber can locate and repair leaks and even replace your entire line if necessary. Here is a look at just a few of the plumbing problems that can be fixed with trenchless sewer repair.
A telltale sign of a sewer problem is a foul stench emanating from your drains. When a sewer line is clogged, either by a tree root or debris, sewer gas goes up the pipes in the wrong direction—which means it goes up into your drains. Don’t ignore these foul odors, as, over time, the sewer could send wastewater back up your drains as well. Keep an ear out for gurgling sounds that accompany the odor—these sounds can indicate that gas is building up in the p-trap of the drain.
Drain clogs aren’t uncommon, especially when they happen in one drain. When all of your drains start clogging at once, including drains that don’t get a lot of use, then your sewer could be the culprit. It is especially suspicious if the drains on the lower level of your home start clogging repeatedly. They are the closest to your sewer line and may be first to show the signs.
Unexpected Fixture Behavior
There shouldn’t be any mystery in how your plumbing fixtures work. For example, when you flush your toilet, the water and waste should leave the bowl, which should refill with water. If water bubbles up in your sink after you flush, or some other odd behavior occurs, the sewer line may be the problem.
