Sewer System Backup Warning Signs
There are a few major warning signs that your sewer system is dealing with a difficult backup or in need of other repairs. Some of the warning signs include:
- Drain backups in the toilet, shower or sink
- Water sitting in sinks and tubs without draining
- Strong sewage odour coming from drains or outside the home
- Gurgling sounds coming from drains
- Basement flooding
How to Keep Your Sewer System Safe
It’s important to remember to properly maintain sewage drains, but this is easier said than done. Ensure that food scraps, hair stands, and miscellaneous objects are not put down the drain. These items can easily begin to build up over time and create a backup. If backups do occur, do not use store bought chemical solutions to repair them. These DIY fixes are formulated to either be so strong they erode the pipes themselves, or too weak and have no effect. Snakes and augers are a good temporary solution to get water moving, but do not get rid of the backup entirely.
Instead, call Mr. Rooter for your sewer system backups and repairs. With our experience and knowledge we’ll determine what the cause of the backup is and work efficiently to repair it. If you have any reason to believe that your sewer system is malfunctioning, give us a call at (403) 341-6311 and have your sewer system inspected and repaired today.
