Having Trouble With Your Plumbing? Maybe This can Help!

The stress of owning property can sometimes go through the roof.

Excuse the bad joke, but it’s true. Property ownership can be as difficult and as it is stressful if you don’t carefully pay attention to every aspect inside and outside your home.

One of the more stressful situations involving home ownership is plumbing. Having faucets, showers, and toilets back up are things no homeowner enjoys dealing with. These problems could come up even if you are not at fault. Sometimes, a city’s municipal pipelines can become damaged, which can lead to plumbing issues for your area.

Luckily, there are a few things you can do depending on the severity of the situation when it comes to issues with your sewer pipes.

    • If there aren’t any problems with your plumbing, you’re in the clear! But it’s still important to be proactive to make sure you’ll be in the clear. Angie Hicks of Angie’s List recommends that if you’re living in a home that is more than 40 years old, you should have your sewer pipes inspected.
    • You may begin to notice that some small issues are arising with your plumbing. You should inspect around your kitchen and bathrooms yourself, but you should also know that taking a look outside can lead to the potential cause of the problem. If you notice that your trees are located close to where the sewer lines are, the location could become an issue. The root of a tree can grow up to three times more than the width of its crown and if they are located within 10 feet of sewer lines, serious root intrusion and damage can occur.
    • If strong damage has occurred and you’re having serious issues with your plumbing, it’s time to get help. Trenchless or “no-dig” sewer repair methods have been around for about 15 years. Trenchless technology is a great way to assess your sewer problems, repair any cracks, or completely replace pipes without tearing up your lawn.
