Having your drains get clogged can be very frustrating, but easily fixed. But if you have a bigger problem than just your drains, like problems with your pipes you need to get it fixed before it starts to cause problems. How do you know if you have sewage and pipe problems around your house because you can’t see them? The Original $49.95 Plumber explores this further below.
Odor from Sewage
You should not smell the sewage from your pipes. It should be completely sealed off, which prevents the smell from getting into your home. If you are smelling the sewer, it is because you likely have a crack or break in your pipes.
Backups or Slow Drains
Getting a clogged drain every once in a while is normal, but if you are noticing your drains are backing up or your drains are draining slowly throughout the whole house, it could be a more serious issue. It could be a root has obstructed some pipes, or you have cracks or a pipping error. All of these can cause you to have back-up blockage or slow draining in your home.
Mold Growth in Home
You do not want mold growth in your home. But if you aren’t noticing a mold growth in your home and you have not noticed any leaks around any of the pipes then it could be a sewer problem, not a pipe and water problem. If you notice strong odors and mold growth, there is a high likelihood that you have a broken pipe somewhere in your home.
Grass is Greener
Sewage is like fertilizer so if you have a spot of grass in a certain area that is greener and not sure why it could be that you have a sewage leak that is coming under your grass. When there is a leak your yard will benefit from this fertilizer and become greener.
Waste in Yard from Septic Tank
This one makes it very easy to realize something is wrong. When you have septic tank waste in your yard, it will pool up in your yard where you can see it and smell it. This means that your septic tank is broken somewhere or you have a clog and it is coming out onto your yard.
Increase of Rodents & Insects
If you have cracks or breaks in your sewage system, it will attract rodents and pests into your home. If you notice that you have an increase in insects and rodents, it could be because you have a crack in your sewage system. Rodents and insects bring diseases that you do not want in your home. Once you fix the cracks or breaks in your sewage system, it can help eliminate rodents and insects.
