VENTURA SEWER REPAIR
As time takes its toll, sewer pipes can develop clogs and leaks, become corroded and even begin to crack in spots. When issues like this start to take hold, it’s best to call a plumber before the problem spirals out of hand and leads to even costlier damages. Be an informed homeowner and know what to look for with sewer line problems.
Red Flags of a Sewer Backup
Of course, drain systems can’t speak. However, they might still be desperately trying to tell you something’s gone wrong. Slow drains, unpleasant odors and gurgling toilets are usually the first signs of a blockage in a sewer line.
The easiest way to tell if a backup is located on a single drain line or the main line is to use another drain or toilet located on the lowest level of the home. If that drain or toilet works fine, the backup is just the single drain. However, if the drain or toilet is also slow or gurgling, the blockage is most likely located on the main line, which signifies a larger problem.
Here are some ways to diagnose whether your sewer line needs repairing or not:
- Flush the toilet and the water backs up into the bathtub or shower drains
- Run the sink closest to the toilet for a minute and the toilet bubbles like a percolator, or the water level in the toilet rises noticeably
- Use your washing machine and the toilet overflows or the tub or shower become backed up.
If you’re noticing any of these warning signs, contact a Ventura-area plumbing specialist as soon as possible, and be sure to ask them about trenchless sewer replacement options.
Why Choose Trenchless Sewer Replacement?
Trenchless sewer repair and replacement is a relatively recent technology that has revolutionized traditional plumbing methods. Using this technique, a plumber will place a flexible tube coated with a liquid epoxy resin inside your blocked or damaged pipe, forming a new pipe within the existing line. Because the new pipe is built inside the old one, the transition will be seamless. Trenchless repairs can typically be completed in one day.
The biggest advantage of the trenchless sewer method is that it creates minimal damage and disruption to your lawn, driveway or landscaping. Another benefit is that this type of work uses less equipment to get the job done, resulting in a far smaller carbon footprint. Homeowners can realize significant savings in labor and yard repair costs by going trenchless. The newer pipe will also be seamless and resistant to future damage.
