Blocked drains are a common annoyance many homeowners face. While clogged drains can and do happen, it should not be a frequent issue. If you find that the drains in your home constantly clog, it may indicate troubles with your sewer line. Fortunately, you can save money by tackling the problem as soon as possible.

Our experts here at Perfect, Plumbing Heating & Air can line your pipes to improve water flow and minimize clogs. If you are unsure whether you need pipe lining, there are several ways you can tell. Look for these common signs that your pipes need lining.

Trust Your Nose

Is there an unpleasant odor in your home that causes your nose to wrinkle? Your olfactory sense is trustworthy. Disagreeable smells could indicate a problem with your pipes. Sewage contains waste and bacteria that is harmful to your health. If the pipes in your home are damaged, the smell of sewage could drift through your house.

If your nose detects a foul odor, it is best to reach out to us at Perfect, Plumbing Heating & Air immediately. Sewage can create further damage while also putting your health at risk. Our plumbers can tackle the issue quickly and efficiently. Addressing damaged pipes and sewage smells can protect your home’s integrity and prevent hazardous waste from harming you or your family.

Pipe lining can help address sewage leaks and damaged pipes with minimal invasiveness. With pipe lining, there is no need to dig trenches in your yard. Instead, we insert an epoxy tube into your sewer line and inflate it. The process is fast, efficient, and reliable.

Don’t Ignore That Sound

Just as your nose is reliable, so are your ears. If you hear strange sounds coming from your drains or pipes, pay attention. Gurgling sounds from your drains or pipes that bang and clank are more than just aggravating. Those noises could indicate a blockage issue or a damaged sewer line or pipe. Banging and clanging is usually a sign of too much water pressure.

One of our professionals can perform an inspection to locate the source of the problem. They can then determine if pipe lining is the best repair option for you. It is not wise to ignore noisy drains and pipes. The sooner you deal with the problem, the better. Waiting could lead to further damage, which is a costly mistake.

Look for the Signs

Your nose and ears are dependable senses, but don’t forget your eyes. Your eyes can help you spot common signs that your pipes need lining. If you see puddles or wet spots in your yard where there shouldn’t be any, it likely indicates a damaged sewer line. Pay close attention to your lawn after it rains. If puddles or wet spots don’t dry up, let us know immediately.

A damaged sewer line will leak underground and cause these puddles or wet spots to appear in your yard. If left unchecked, that leak can eventually lead to expensive damage. For instance, a continued leak could create sinkholes in your property. If left untreated, accumulated wetness could eventually weaken and erode your home’s foundation.

When the wet spots in your yard are accompanied by a foul smell, it is a clear sign that you have a sewer line problem. A damaged sewer line can contaminate the soil in your landscape by allowing the spread of bacteria. Aside from damaging your property, it can be harmful to your health, so make sure you seek professional assistance as soon as possible.

Pay Attention to Water Flow

It is not uncommon for drains to slow down from time to time. You may notice that the water drains a little slower out of your sink or shower. However, slow drains should not be a continuing issue, nor should this problem affect multiple drains in your home. If you notice the drains in your residence operating slowly and it is a frequent issue, it’s likely a sign of a pipe problem.

Some homeowners report slow drains after it rains. However, drains should return to normal after the rain stops and the ground dries out. If the issue persists, your sewer line could be the culprit. A damaged or collapsed sewer line will prevent drains from operating effectively.

Our trained plumbers will use their skills and resources to determine the extent to which your sewer line is damaged. If the line is damaged and not totally broken apart, pipe lining could be a good solution. Rather than replacing the entire line, pipe lining addresses the damaged areas of the pipe for quick, easy, affordable repair.

Keep an Eye on Your Foundation

The foundation of your home can tell you a lot about the health of your plumbing system. It is important to maintain the structural integrity of your home’s foundation to prevent costly problems. A damaged sewer line that goes undetected or unaddressed for too long can eventually damage your foundation, leading to cracks and sagging.

Look for signs of cracks and sagging in your foundation to determine if you may have a sewer line issue. A compromised foundation can eventually damage other areas of your home, such as your walls, floors, and ceilings. Furthermore, moisture seeping into your home’s foundation can lead to mold growth.

A leaking sewer line erodes the soil under your foundation, which is what eventually leads to the cracks and sagging. Do not hesitate to seek our assistance if you notice any damage to the foundation of your home. Our trained experts can determine if the cause is related to a damaged pipe and whether pipe lining is a viable solution.

Why Pipe Lining?

Pipe lining is an option for homeowners facing issues with damaged pipes that are not completely broken. Rather than tearing apart your yard or walls to access your pipes, we use a durable liner. The process is less invasive, far more affordable, and not nearly as disruptive. The insertable liner can seal cracks, add strength and reinforcement to weak spots, and improve functionality.

Think of it as adding a layer of armor to your pipes, which helps minimize future plumbing issues. You may also gain a greater life span from your pipes with a reliable pipe liner. No homeowner wants to deal with the trouble of excavators in their yard or torn up walls and flooring. With pipe lining, you don’t have to worry about disruptions to your daily schedule. The process is relatively simple and fast.
