4 Signs That You Need Sewer Repair

Do you need sewer repair in Vancouver, BC? Your sewer line is vulnerable to damage due to old age, corrosion, harsh weather conditions, and blockages. To determine the problem, a plumber can identify the source of the damage and provide quality sewer repair in Vancouver, BC. Here are four signs that you need sewer repair.

1. Slow drain. If you notice the water in your toilets, sinks, and bathtubs are having a hard time going down the drain, you might need sewer repair. A slow drain could indicate a clogged pipe, which usually can be fixed with a drain cleaning. If that doesn’t fix the problem, then the clog is much deeper in the sewer line.

2. Foul odors. A functional sewer line should always be sealed airtight, meaning no gas or water should ever leak out. If however, you start smelling something foul coming out of your drains, your sewer line may be damaged or broken.

3. Strange noises. Your plumbing will make some noise when the water is running, but it’s important to listen carefully for any uncommonly strange noises. If you start hearing loud gurgling sounds coming out of your plumbing, it’s usually an indicator that there’s trapped air somewhere inside your plumbing which could be coming from a clog somewhere.

4. Toilet backup. Unfortunately, some people do not realize they have a problem until the toilet starts backing up. If your toilet starts to back up with either raw sewage or clear water, turn off the water supply at the back of the toilet and call a plumbing company immediately.
