How can you tell if you need sewer pipe repair or cleaning in your Mesa home? Here are some signs to watch out for:
1. Chronic and recurring clogs
If you seem to be cleaning your indoor drains more often than usual, the clog probably wasn’t completely removed in the first place. Are your bathtub and shower drains always blocked up, too? Call a plumber.
2. Foul smells
Bad sewer odor emanating from your drain is a sign of sewer pipe problems. There may be a buildup in the system or even a broken pipe. To determine the root cause, have a plumber come over and inspect your sewer pipes.
3. Multiple clogged drains
If two (or more) drains block up at the same time, you may have a bigger problem on your hands. Any drain can be affected—the tub, toilet, sink, or floor drain.
4. Slow drains
Does water take longer than usual to disappear from your sink? The pipelines may already have buildup.
If sewage is coming out of your drains, immediate action is needed. Wastewater should flow straight to the municipal sewer or stay in the septic tank, not go back up. Call a plumber right away as this problem is a health risk as it may contaminate your water.
