Sewer Line Nightmares: 5 Warning Signs For Homeowners


5 Warning Signs For When You Need a Sewer Line Inspection from the team at Ease Plumbing

Every homeowner knows the importance of a well-installed and secure sewer line. Those who have experienced sewer leaks and backflow know the smelly reality that an overflowing sewer can bring. 

Whether you’re one of the many searching for a home in the United State’s fourth hottest housing market or if you’re already a Charlotte homeowner, it’s important for you to invest in sewer line inspections, repairs, and replacements at the proper time. 

Hidden underground, sewer lines are often easy to forget. But when something goes wrong, you’ll know they are there. Sewer lines are responsible for removing all of the wastewater from your home and moving it into your city’s civil sewer system. 

Because sewer lines are installed underground, you won’t be able to see the cracks and damages that tree roots or years of wear and tear can cause. But there are warning signs that you’ll be able to see (or smell) when problems come to the surface. 

The Yard is Soggy 

You can’t blame it all on the rainfall. If you’re noticing extra puddles in your yard, consistently in the same place, and there wasn’t just heavy rainfall, then it’s time to call in the plumbing professionals at NuBlue Plumbing to take a look. 

The Grass Is Greener

You may be sitting back thinking how nice and lush your lawn is looking this year. Funny thing is, you haven’t been watering it, fertilizing it, or really doing anything different than normal! So why is it greener than ever? Sewer is a natural fertilizer so if your yard is looking oddly fresh, call the professionals.

The Water Is Running 

Shhh! Do you hear that? No one is washing their hands, taking a shower, or using a faucet of any kind but yet you hear the sound of running water. If this is you, run— don’t walk to call the team at NuBlue Plumbing and Air. 

The Fresh Air Isn’t Fresh

If there’s a leak in your sewer line, your nose might be the first to notice. Leaking sewage or blocked sewage that is on the verge of overflowing can cause some pretty foul odors. If your nose is telling you that the air isn’t so fresh anymore, give our team at NuBlue Plumbing a call. 

The Years Have Passed

Knowing when the sewer line was last inspected or replaced is an important fact to know about your home. Sewer lines should be inspected regularly to prevent any costly damages and extreme messes. Over time sewer lines can be damaged, disintegrate, or can be broken by tree roots. Whether you’ve lived in your home for 25 years or if you are looking to buy a new home, sewer line inspections are a must. 

The team at NuBlue Plumbing is trained to professionally inspect your sewer line with an underground camera so that we can see exactly what’s happening beneath the surface. If you feel that it’s time to have your sewer line inspected, repaired, or replaced, give our team a call or book online today
