Common Emergency Sewer Problems

Imagine waking up on a chilly Wednesday morning and sleepily making your way to the bathroom, only to discover that your toilet has overflowed during the night and flooded your bathroom. Maybe there is water that came up through the drain in your bathtub, or maybe you wake up to an unfortunate smell wafting throughout your home.

When sewer emergencies happen — and they will — it’s important that you have someone you can call to fix the problem right away. Our team of experienced plumbers is ready to help get your sewer problems fixed as quickly as possible.

In today’s blog, we’ll cover some of the most common emergency sewer problems that we find, and when you have an emergency sewer situation of your own, call us at Dirt Cheap Sewer right away.

Broken Sewer Pipes

One of the most common causes of emergency sewer problems is a broken sewer pipe. A sewer pipe can break either from old age, a clog, or tree roots that penetrate the pipes. You may notice signs of broken pipes because of sewer leakage either in your home or yard, or a noticeable unpleasant odor.

If you suspect that you have broken sewer pipes on your Seattle home or property, be sure to call Dirt Cheap Sewer right away to get the sewer repairs you need!

Backups & Clogs

Another common sewer emergency is a clogged pipe. As you just read, clogs can cause your sewer pipes to break, so it’s important to get these taken care of as soon as possible. Clogs can happen for a multitude of reasons — the most common being that something that shouldn’t go down the drain did. This can be anything from grease to hair, or a combination of things. If your sinks are draining more slowly or you notice a funny smell coming from your drains, call us right away. At Dirt Cheap Sewer, we offer drain clearing to get those stubborn clogs taken care of before they create bigger, more expensive problems.

Offset Pipes

Offset pipes are pipes that have become misaligned or disconnected. When this happens, clogs are most likely to occur because things won’t be able to flow as easily through your sewer system. Offset pipes need to be repaired as soon as possible in order to avoid more extensive damages. One thing leads to another, and offset pipes can lead to clogs which can lead to broken sewer pipes.

Avoid these problems altogether when you call our team at Dirt Cheap Sewer for a sewer line inspection for your Seattle home.
