In the video below, we want to give you some sense of the dangers lurking in sewage backups as well the steps we take to keep you safe and get your property clean & dry.
For many homeowners, dealing with a sewage backup can be a continual problem. If that is the case for you, you’ll need to do a little more digging to understand the root cause of your sewage backup issue. For starters, determine what scenario is most likely to result in your sewage damage.
Does it happen during heavy rains?
If that is the case, you probably live in a municipality that uses an antiquated sewage system called a combined sewer system. As the name might suggest, it combines both raw sewage and storm drainage in one pipe. Both water sources travel down the pipe and eventually raw sewage exits to a treatment facility while storm water exits somewhere else. But unfortunately this type of sewage system can get overloaded during times of heavy rains. When this happens, all of the water traveling through the pipe can get backed up and will naturally seek an exit somewhere. The easiest path for the water is to find refuge up your home’s pipe that is tied into the main sewer line. If you’ve experienced a massive amount of sewage damage coming up from your toilets or drainage pipes during a heavy storm, this is most likely the culprit.
Below is a simple diagram that explains how the water flows from entry point to exit point when a combined sewer system is servicing the community:
Does it happen when you’re running appliances?
If you notice your line is more inclined to backup when you’re running a dishwasher, taking a shower or otherwise have a large amount of water going down your drain, there’s an issue with your main sewer line (the one exiting your home). There’s pretty much only 2 possibilities:
() you have a block in your drain – if this is the case, you can call out a plumbing company and have them snake the line to clear any debris or tree roots that may be causing the backup. It’s pretty cheap and should at least temporarily fix the issue!
() your drain has collapsed – with older drainage systems, it wasn’t uncommon for the pipes to made of clay. Eventually these pipes collapse. If you suspect you have these older clay pipes, you’ll want to have a camera/video scope performed to see the extent of the damage. If there is significant damage, you’ll need to have the entire sewer line replaced. This can cost a pretty penny, but the reality is you can’t ignore it. The problem isn’t going away.
