The invention of indoor plumbing has been instrumental in improving people’s health. To be able to easily and cleanly dispose of human waste and to have running water to wash with after is extremely important for sanitation and physical health.
So when something goes wrong with our sewer lines, we tend to panic. A persistent smell in your home, a clogged toilet or a puddle of raw sewage backing up into the basement can be horrifying. That’s when you know you need a plumber, quickly.
But can you ever have a broken sewer pipe and not even know? Sure you can. Signs of a broken or leaking sewer pipe include a persistently spongy spot in your yard over your sewer pipe, a patch of grass that’s greener than the rest, a new infestation of rodents or insects in your home, a sudden increase in mold and mildew growth, and cracks in cement structures such as walkways or basement floors.
All these signs indicate a problem with your underground sewer lines. That’s when you need sewer line repair in Millcreek.
