6 Reasons to Get Sewer Pipe Repair

Keep Your Family Safe
Sewer lines transport toxic waste that is hazardous to your health. If your sewer issues have caused water to back up in your yard or in your bathroom, the physical health of people in your home is at risk. Sewage water contains bacteria, parasites, and fungi. Any exposure to sewage water could lead to diarrhea, cramps, and headaches. The longer you wait to repair your sewer, the worse the unappealing, disgusting problem may become. If you want to protect your family from this harmful water backup, you will need to engage in an emergency sewer repair.

Eliminates Slow Drain Problems
If you have clogs in your sewer line, your drains will slow down considerably. Although the clog might not completely block the flow of water in your home, it will slow the flow. You might need to wait minutes for your shower or sink drains to fully empty. This might not seem like a big deal, but it can lead to excess water that will make your home more appealing to moisture-loving pests. With a sewer line repair, your pipes will be allowed to run free and clear. Free-flowing water will eliminate the pesky backups, the unseemly smells and will keep your home from unsightly water damage.

Environmentally Friendly: Preserves Landscaping.
Many homes and businesses have sewer lines running under beautiful and expensive landscaping. If you have roots in your sewer pipes or a broken pipe, there could be sewage spilling out into your yard, and in extreme cases, even spill out into your neighbor’s yard. But even worse, the leak will allow toxic sewage into your air. The smell, the potential landscape, and yard damage, along with the health hazards makes repairing your sewer line a top priority. An underground plumbing system is a web of water, sewage, and gas lines. Our sewer pipe repair technicians can complete the job in a streamlined approach with no risk of hitting another line and releasing chemicals or raw sewage into the environment.
