It is important that you know the warning signs of when your Brooklyn sewer pipes have reached the final stages. Unless you have experience with plumbing, you will likely not be aware of when your sewer pipes start to break. As a Brooklyn homeowner, if you are not aware of the signs, you can find yourself in a world of trouble. That is because unless drain problems are caught in the early stages, more severe problems could be in store for you in the near future. Here are some signs that could indicate your sewer pipes need to be checked by a professional. If any of these signs are familiar, you should not put off contacting a professional any longer.
A Lack of Proper Drainage
If you begin to notice that the water is not draining from your sink or shower on the ground level, it could mean that you have sewer pipes that have been broken, or the pipes have root incursions. When you take a shower or when you are washing dishes, do you notice a build up of water, or a pool of water, in a basement plumbing fixture? Brooklyn is filled with trees and a small Brooklyn sewer line break can cause tree roots to fill the pipe. Slow drainage is a sign that roots may be in the drain line, but have not yet completely blocked the line.
An Unpleasant Smell
If you have been trying to figure out what the annoying or unpleasant smell is in your home, it could mean there is sewage leaking in or around your home. Stagnant waste water inside your drain pipes can also cause this unpleasant odor. If you have a cracked pipe or dislodged pipe, this could very well be the reason for the smell. This is one of the easiest ways to know you have an issue. Few smells are as recognizable or distinctive as sewage smell. Don’t waste any time if you smell this as sewer gasses can be harmful. In addition, stagnant sewer water equates to bacteria and mold.
