Blockages are Never Easy to Spot

While it is never easy to spot, the devastation that a clogged sewer line can cause to a home is quite considerable. There are numerous pipes in your home that carry waste water from sinks, tubs and toilets, and transport the waste to the main sewer line. When one of these pipes is impeded, the situation can turn out to be quite problematic. A blockage in your sewer mains could be disastrous because the entire sewer gets affected and waste might begin to back up into your home.

The Causes of Sewer Line Damage

Most sewer line problems actually occur because there is blockage in the line itself. Most homeowners will react by pouring a lot of corrosive chemicals into the lines hoping for the line to open up, or that the clog will be removed. This is only a temporary solution that could again add to the already existing damage. If you live in a home that has been around for quite a while, some pipes are made of clay or material that is penetrable. Chemical might cause more devastation by eating into these pipes thus resulting in further breakdown.

Do Pipes Need Replacement or Removal?

Another problem could be tree roots that are connected to sources of water. If the trees are very near the foundation of the property, they might sprout into the sewer lines. Once they have grown into the pipes, they curl up and completely obstruct the pipes. This calls for a complete removal and replacement of the pipes. Some sewer line problems also occur because of the movement of the ground surrounding over the pipes. When the ground moves in such a manner that it does not allow normal drainage to happen, water will start gathering inside of the pipes and this is likely to leak into the foundation. A clogged sewer line can also be as a result of the age of the pipes. If pipes are too old and there is discharge, as a result of this, they will need to be removed and replaced. This is where expert services are required and this is exactly what we at Your Plumber Lehi are here to assist you with.

Why Calling professional Plumbers is Advisable

A clogged sewer line is a distress to any homeowner. If the problem is just a slow drain, a plunger or drain cleaner can take care of the situation. If the drains are consistently slow, it’s time to call in the professionals. The older the pipes, the more the need for specialized equipment such as a drum auger. Older pipes can be very fragile and this is a good reason why you should let our professional plumbing expertise come in and remedy the problem. If you try to do it on your own, you might end up making a bigger mess than what you started with. This is likely to damage your pipes and making a bad situation worse.

Gurgling Sounds? 

When there is a gurgling sound coming from your sink, toilet, or shower, you probably already have a problem that has reached critical proportions. This is not time to experiment but is time to call us at Your Plumbing Lehi because we are professionals who know how expertly to handle such critical situations.

Gas Going Up Your Pipes

Such clogs can amass into pockets of air over a period of time and when they breakout, they will emit the gurgling sound. It possible to plunge the clogs, but most of the time, they pose quite a major challenge. It is also likely for the clogged sewer line to start emitting gas up your pipes and hence the noise. Both ways, it is advisable to get in touch with our professional plumbing services sooner rather than later. We have the tools and the expertise to handle such delicate situations.

Could You Be Your Own Enemy?

One major reason why a sewer gets clogged is because people throw stuff in outlets and then these things are flushed down the drains. The items will create a black sludge that in most cases finds its way back up the pipes because of clogging. The sludge does not look good and smells terrible and will probably be unbearable.

Making the Right Decision

It would be unwise to call just any plumber, because while some problems start on a small scale, everything really depends on who handles them and how they are handled. A main sewer line problem can become much more problematic if not handled professionally. Of course, there are some plumbing problems of lesser magnitude that you may feel that you might be able to handle on your own, but it wouldn’t be wise to do that in case there is a deeper issue with your plumbing than what you see. However, contracting our professional plumbing services is a guarantee that the problem in your home plumbing system will not worsen but will be resolved.

Frozen Piping? Call the Professionals

Ice can be a huge problem because it can bring about freezing inside your sewer. Your pipes freeze and then the sewer lines will start to back up. Most of the time when this happens, flooding will probably occur and other sewer issues will arise. Sewer lines do not often freeze but when they do, the drain system will be closed down and homeowners experience major inconveniences.

The moment you realize that there is a clogged sewer line due to potential freezing, you need to call Your Plumbing Lehi immediately. Never try to thaw the pipes on your own because this might cause cracks. Even worse, thawing might lead to a full burst. The blockage in your pipes happen because water is frozen and has expanded inside the pipes. The winter weather has the potential to affect your sewer considerably thus calling for sewer repair. We at Your Plumber Lehi are a professional plumbing service that can handle this problem and save you the trouble of getting a new piping system installed. We have the tools and equipment to get the frozen drain thawed. If you are looking for a qualified and reliable plumber, look no further than Your Plumber Lehi.
