Signals That You Need to Call a Sewer Repair Expert Right Away

4 Signs That You Have a Damaged Sewer

The sewer is one of the most important plumbing systems in your house. It is responsible for transporting waste and water to the point where they are disposed of safely and properly. Sewers are often neglected because of the location, but they are not as difficult to work on as you may think! Here are some signs that you need sewer repair:

Leaking Water

Your sewer could be leaking if you find any wet spots on your floor. Check behind your washing machine, under your sink, or in your yard. If you have hard water, check your water pipes. If you find any of these, your sewer is leaking and you need to call a technician to check it out and repair any problems as soon as possible.

Noises From Your Toilet

If you find that your toilet is running every two minutes, it could be due to a damaged flapper. Flappers are the rubber pieces inside your toilet that help it know when to go and stay closed. When they wear out or get damaged, it causes the water to leak out and causes the toilet to run every two minutes.

Dirty Water

Your water could be dirty if it is discolored or tastes bad. If you find that your water is discolored, check your sink. If you find that it is discolored, check your water pipes. If you find that it is discolored, take a sample to your local hardware store and have a technician check it for you.

Pest Infestation

If you have mice problems in your home, be sure your septic system is working well. If you have recently installed the system, you might need to repair or replace it. If you don’t want to deal with those rodents, contact professionals. They can fix your sewer line and keep your basement safe.
