Sewer Problems

Next to water supply pipelines inside buildings are bigger pipelines that comprise the drainage, waste, and vent - or DWV network. Drain-waste-vent pipelines incline down to facilitate the removal of used tissue paper, waste and dirty water from the house with the force of gravitation. Waste substance is ejected from the house by the drain-waste-vent pipelines thru a sanitary sewer pipeline that connects to a main sewage treatment facility. Main sewage pipes are susceptible to an array of plumbing inconveniences like:

Tree root invasion


Roots love water, and therefore have an inclination to cultivate toward clammy origins including subsurface sewer lines. Spreading roots of trees split and choke sewer lines with hairy roots entrapping waste substance carried inside. Overtime masses of debris and roots congest sewer pipes and avoid gray water from drifting toward the main sewage treatment facility. Thus wastewater will inverse directions and backflow into structures.

Sewer backups


Inappropriate flushing of wet wipes, nappies, sanitation products and more in W.Cs result in immovable clogs in central sewer pipes. Rather than streaming in one direction from home through sanitary sewer and into main, under such circumstances effluent will reverse direction and backup into homes. Sewer backflows are intolerable and foul residences with waste matter.

Sewer gas odors


Drain traps contain water seals that block intolerable gas smells from entering homes. Sewer gases invade houses via drains devoid of water plugs. Water seal evaporation generally takes place in drains not used frequently. Pouring a gallon of water down a drain will reestablish the plug of water seal and correct the trouble of indoor sewer stenches.
