Your home’s sewer line and water line are essential parts of your plumbing system. A problem with either of these lines is not a minor inconvenience – it a big problem that you want fixed as quickly as possible. Here are some potential problems that can happen to your home’s pipes – including your water and sewer lines.
Most water is filled with various minerals that can potentially buildup in your pipes. If you have hard water, it can possibly damage your pipes and create blockages that will prevent water from coming into your home. If you are concerned that hard water is causing problems in your plumbing system, you can have a water softening device installed.
One of the most prevailing problems you can have in your home’s pipelines is clogging. This is more common in your sewer line, and it can be caused by a number of different factors. You can prevent clogs by not flushing objects that are difficult to dissolve down your drains. This includes: paper towels, hair, and tissues. All of those objects take a long time to disintegrate, which means they can build up in your pipes.
Roots Infiltrating Pipes
Your water and sewer line run under your yard, so there is the chance that the roots from the trees on your property might try to infiltrate your pipes. The roots seek out water as they grow, so sometimes they wrap around your pipes to try to absorb water from the line. If they find a weak spot in the pipe, they will break through create a leak. Roots can do a lot of damage, so its best to take care of root infiltration problem sooner rather than later.
There are a few warning signs of problems with your water or sewer line. A sewage smell or drain flies in your yard are a good indication of a sewer line leak. A sudden spike in your water bill or a loss of water pressure can be a sign of a broken water line. If you notice any of these symptoms, call Resolve Rooter right away!
