When you run into problems of any kind with your plumbing system, you want to have them resolved as soon as possible. It is important to remember that this covers both sides your plumbing system—meaning the supply side that brings water into your home, as well as the drain and sewer side that is responsible for draining waste and wastewater out of your home and away from your property. The question is how are you supposed to know that there are problems to begin with?
As usual, we’ve got answers. You do not want to wait for serious problems to develop before you’re even aware of them, let alone resolving them. That is why learning about some common warning signs of drain and sewer problems is so important. So keep the following tips in mind, and remember to schedule your drain and sewer services in Corona, CA with the professional plumbers here at The Sunny Plumber SoCal.
Odors, and Not Good Ones
Your sewer and drain system is there for you every time you run the dishwasher or flush the toilet. Plenty of waste makes its way out of the home through this system and, without getting too far into the details, it is not all that pleasant. Neither is its odor. That is why you need to take any sewer odors in your home or around your property seriously.
If you smell sewer odors in the house, you could be dealing with a backup somewhere in the line. There could be a venting issue, too. You could also just have drains in need of a good cleaning. If you smell the odor of sewage outside, around your property, then you may have a leak in your sewer line. Whatever the case, you need this problem to be resolved promptly.
Yes, slow-moving. Not completely blocked. When it comes to clogged drains or sewer lines, swift action is always best. Don’t wait for things to come to a standstill.
In fact, you don’t even always have to wait for your drains to start moving slowly. Look for bubbles coming from draining fixtures, and listen for gurgling or hissing sounds, too. Any of these issues should be considered an early warning.
Frequent Toilet Clogs
Toilets will clog up from time to time, even if you use them properly. That is why you’ll find a plunger next to just about any toilet that you come across. However, if you find yourself reaching for that plunger frequently, even when you’re sure that you are not overtaxing the toilet in any way, then you’ll want to reach out to a member of our team ASAP.
You could be dealing with a clog that is a lot farther down the sewer line than you think, and it may be more serious than you realize. This type of issue is only ever going to be resolved with professional drain and sewer cleaning services. That is just one more area where our plumbers excel, of course!
