Is Your Home Sewage System in Good Shape?

Signs Your Sewer Line Needs Some Special Attention

No, the sewer system isn’t just the channel of piping out on the street that carries water and waste away. It’s also an integral part of your home plumbing!

In homes without a septic system, your sewer line is what connects you to that larger sewer system on the street. It safely and effectively ferries flushed and drained water out of your home and off to be treated.

Because this essential task happens beneath our feet, it’s easy to forget it’s happening at all. But your sewer line is still subject to wear and tear, damage and other issues that may need to be addressed to keep the water flowing correctly. Fortunately, just like we’re ready to help with AC repair to prepare you for the summer, Cornerstone is now able to help with sewer cleaning and repair in your Tampa home, too!

What Causes Sewer Line Damage?

Sewer lines are tough. They’re built to withstand lots of use, but are far from impervious to various threats and issues. Some of the most common issues homeowners face with their sewer lines include:

  • Blocked pipes. Sewage blockages often happen when too many bulky items (like diapers or “flushable” wipes) have been sent down the drain. With this issue, you’ll notice gurgling water or backed up drains throughout your home.
  • Corroded pipes. After interacting with the additional contents of flushed water time and time again, the lining of the pipes can be worn away resulting in leaks that can bring that wastewater back into your home.
  • Tree roots. Because sewer lines are laid underground, trees and greenery tend to get in the way. As trees grow, their roots may intrude on your sewer line in their search for moisture, resulting in blockages or severe damage.
  • Shifting pipes. Just like your teeth shift in your mouth over years of use, so does your sewer line in the ground. Excess pressure, rain water and overall age can cause your sewer line to warp and not operate as intended any longer.

Call Your Plumbing Experts to Handle the Job!

If you suspect an issue with your sewer line, do not hesitate to give us a call. When left untreated, sewage issues can lead to far more than just slow draining water from your sinks. The last thing you’ll want is to come home from work to a home full of sewer water to greet you.

Sewer line repair begins with a thorough inspection. We’ll use cameras that can be snaked throughout the line to take a close look for potential issues that could be causing problems. If we find an issue, we’ll discuss potential solutions with you so we can address the problem with as little interruption to your day-to-day as possible.

Investing in Your Home Can SAVE You Money!

Don’t forget that tax season is upon us! While filing your taxes can be stressful, it’s also a great opportunity to invest back into your home. If you’re expecting a tax refund this year, you can use that extra cash to make improvements to your heating & AC system, electric installations and, yes, your sewer line!

Making these improvements can actually help you save much more money in the long run. Modern equipment will run more efficiently, patched leaks will result in less wasted water, and you can anticipate fewer necessary repairs or tune-ups throughout the year. That’s all on top of the added value to your home!
