SIGNS OF A DAMAGED SEWER PIPE:
- Strong odor of sewage around your property
- Absence of water in toilet(s)
- Sewage backup in tubs or toilets
- Sounds coming the toilet (gurgling)
- Continuous slow draining in bathtub
Don’t wait when you have concerns about a possible broken sewer pipe. If you notice any of these signs, call Innovative Plumbing Pros for a sewer inspection. Our plumbers focus on sewer repairs and can determine if you need a sewer repair.
SEWER REPAIR OPTIONS:
The least expensive form of sewer repair is to restore the portion of the sewer pipe that is broken. This is also referred to as a “spot repair”. With a spot repair, only the section of the affected pipe is repaired versus replacing the whole sewer line. It is a more practical option for home-owners but may not always be the best option.
SEWER LINE REPLACEMENT:
When a sewer repair is not an option, the last possibility is to replace the sewer line. A sewer line replacement costs more than a sewer repair but it guarantees there will be no other issues with that line in the near future. Often a sewer spot repair only temporarily fixes the problem depending on why that line is failing.
SEWER LINE PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE:
To prevent sewer line damage in the future, Innovative Plumbing Pros recommends regular drain cleaning and inspections as part of our residential and commercial plumbing plans. This will pro-long the life of your pipes and save you money on future sewer repairs! If you are pro-active, you can catch a sewer line issue before it becomes a costly repair.
