Be Plumbing and Pipe Aware
If you’ve noticed some of the below issues, you may be in need of a sewer line repair:
Chronically overflowing toilets or clogged sink drains: If you have your pipes regularly cleaned but are still experiencing serious clogs, you may have tree roots growing into your pipes. Too, older Marietta homes often come with sewer pipes that are smaller in diameter, and are unable to keep up with modern water usage - you may need to replace pipes if they are elderly.
Low water pressure: If your water pressure has decreased recently, it could be a sign of either leaky pipe fittings, a cracked pipe, or a serious clog somewhere in the sewer line.
Suddenly high water bills: If you’re suddenly receiving high water bills, even with normal usage, it could indicate a cracked and leaking pipe. Be sure to examine your basement or foundation floor to make sure you don’t have a slab leak on your hands!
Damp spots on basement floors that won’t go away: This likely indicates a slab leak - lingo for a cracked sewer or water line underneath your foundation. Even if the damp patch seems harmless, this can be quite serious, and should be attended to immediately!
Persistent wet and/or bright green patches on your lawn: Like a slab leak, a bright green or continually damp patch on your lawn is a likely indicator of a cracked pipe leaking water or sewage underneath your lawn. Ignoring it will almost certainly lead to a full-blown flood in your backyard, coupled with probable water damage to your house.
An Apple a Day…
Drain maintenance by the homeowner is an important process that should be coupled with a yearly drain cleaning and “check-up” from your NGI professional. Nothing should be fed into your pipes that can’t crumble easily under a running tap (this includes toilet paper and human waste). Wet wipes, kitchen grease, food scraps, feminine hygiene products, medical sharps, and other debris will cause clogs, and should never be disposed of in your drains.
Additionally, learning about your plumbing system will help you in maintaining it. What material are the pipes made of? When were they installed? Do you have records of any past repairs? Knowing these questions will save you from any nasty surprises, such as the need for a total system replacement of elderly plumbing.
