A sewer line does an extremely important job. It is responsible for carrying all of the sewage and wastewater away from your property and into either a Maryland city main or a septic tank. Although sewer lines were designed to last a long time, breaks, clogs, and leaks are common occurrences that plague many property owners, especially if the pipes are old. Sewer lines are buried underground which makes it difficult to tell if problems are occurring before they actually happen. This fact makes it even more important that you know exactly what to look for. So without further ado, here are the top 4 signs that you need sewer line repair or replacement in Baltimore, MD.
1: The Appearance Of Unusual Smells
One of the most obvious signs that you are having a major problem with the sewer line is the appearance of unusual smells emanating from the plumbing fixtures such as toilets and sinks. You may notice these strange smells in the basement and exterior of the property as well. Do not ignore it. The problem will only get worse from there. Contact a reliable, experienced, and affordable plumbing contractor, such as SPT Pipe to assess the situation as soon as possible.
2: Your Plumbing Fixtures Begin To Back Up
If you plumbing fixtures, such as the toilets, faucets, and drains begin to back up or simply are not working properly than it is a tell tale sign that the sewage line is having major issues. Do not attempt to fix the back ups or problems yourself, as it will only make the problem worse and far more expensive to have fixed professionally. Contact SPT Pipe instead, and have the job done the right way, right away.
3: Problems With The Drains
If the drains in your sinks and shower or tub are not draining properly chances are the lack of suction is caused by a major problem in your sewer line. If left untreated you are taking the chance that raw sewage will end up backing up, and enter into your property through these drains, toilets, and faucets. You can certainly avoid raw sewage from backing up by contacting SPT Pipe as soon as you notice a drainage problem.
4: The Appearance Of Excessive Puddles Or Wet Spots In Your Yard
Last but certainly not least is the appearance of excessive puddles or wet spots in your yard. Although puddles tend to form on grass and other landscaping surfaces during and after rain storms, and when large amounts of snow melts, if you notice them appearing at other times than it is a sign that there is a problem with the sewer line. Do not panic, contact SPT Pipe to take care of the problem right away.
