Get the Right Help for Sewer Problems (sewer line repair)
A bad odor or backed up drain can mean sewer problems that need to be addressed by a professional. It is not advisable to use chemical drain cleaners as those can cause damage and corrosion to pipes. If you have tried a plunger or plumber’s snake without success, it is time to call a qualified plumber.
Sometimes, a clogged drain that causes the drain to back up and have a foul odor is simply blocked by debris that can be cleared using a plunger or snake. If these do not clear the drain, there may be other reasons for the problem that need a plumber to diagnose and recommend the best sewer line repair option for the situation. These problems can include any of the issues listed here:
Debris blockage such as mortar or tile grout
Cracked sewer lateral
Separated lateral joint
Bellied drain line
Leaking pipe joints
Roots breaking into and blocking lines
Deterioration of pipe materials
The exact cause of the backed up sewer line and foul odor can be identified by a qualified plumber using specialized video equipment to locate the problem. Once the plumber has located and identified the problem, he can recommend the most cost effective repair. It will also mean not having so much of your property torn apart in the process.
One of the best ways to save costs on repairs is not to wait until a drain is backing up. If it drains slow and plunging it or using a plumbing snake doesn’t clear it, call a plumber. Repairs are much easier and less costly if problems are caught early.
