There are essentially two sides of your plumbing system. The supply side, including the water line that brings potable water to your home and all of the piping and fixtures that distribute that water throughout your household, and the drain and sewer side, which disposes of your waste and wastewater once you are done with it. In order to ensure that the latter half of this equation is completed in an effective, hygienic manner, you must know for certain that your sewer line in Vancouver, BC is in fine working condition. Should any problems arise, it is vital that you schedule professional sewer line repairs immediately. Below you’ll find some examples of warning signs that it is time to schedule sewer line repairs with Mr. Swirl The Friendly Plumber.
Frequently Backed Up Toilets or Drains
You may occasionally run into backed up toilets or clogged drains as a result of basic clogs at a shallow point in the system. If this is a pervasive problem in your home, though, you really must know for certain that there is not a serious problem with your drain line. It may be clogged deep within, or even infiltrated with tree roots. In such instances, professional intervention is necessary.
The odor of sewage is distinctive, to say the least. If you can smell such an odor in your home or on your property, then you need to contact us immediately. Sewer leaks are unhygienic, and you certainly don’t want a sewer line backing up into your home. Dial our number if there is a foul odor in the air.
Bright Green Grass
This is not something that most homeowners would view in a negative light, but bright green grass can actually be a sign of trouble with your sewer line. This is possibly the case if you have a single patch or strip of grass on your property that is greener and fuller than the rest. Your sewer line may actually be leaking, and fertilizing the grass in that area. Whatever tips you off to potential sewer problems, make sure you dial our number to have them resolved.
