1. My water bill is much higher than normal, what could be the cause?
If your water bill seems unusually high, it could well be the sign of an undiagnosed water leak. A leaky faucet or pipe beneath your sink is pretty easy to spot. A leak in your water main or sewer line, though, is not quite as obvious.
2. My water meter is still "spinning" even when the water is off, what does this mean?
A spinning water meter means that water is being used at some point in your plumbing system. If you are certain that no faucets or fixtures are on, this most likely indicates a leak somewhere in the system. Contact a professional plumber to determine for certain where this leak is located.
3. Why do my pipes sound like they are running water when nothing is in use?
Just because you are not actually using any water in your home does not mean that no water is flowing. If there is a leak on your property or beneath the concrete slab below your feet, you may hear the sound of that leaking water. Any sounds of water running without an obvious source should be inspected promptly to avoid increased water bills and costly water damages.
4. My carpets (or wood floors) are damp and there is mold on the floors and walls, where is the water coming from?
Damp conditions can promote the growth of mold in your home. If your water line has sprung a leak, it may manifest itself in the development of wet spots on your carpet and around the base of your walls. Water damage repairs and mold removal services are inconvenient and can be costly, so make sure you call for professional help at the first sign of trouble.
5. Why is there a puddle in my yard and some plants growing out of control?
Your plumbing system runs throughout your home, obviously, but in order to get water into and out of your home it must be brought in via a water line and exit through a drain line. If one of these exterior pipes on your property springs a leak, it can saturate your yard. This will account for the pooling of water and out of control plant growth.
6. Why does my sewer line back up so often (more than once every 3 years)?
There are a few possible reasons why your sewer line seems to back up with alarming regularity. Poor maintenance practices may have allowed persistent clogs to develop. If a clog is not removed completely, it will accumulate again before too long. It is also possible that tree roots have grown into your sewer line, or that there is some form of interior damage within the sewer line. A professional plumber will be able to tell you for sure.
7. A root was removed from my sewer line when snaking, how do I prevent this from happening again?
Tree roots naturally grow towards water, including that water within your sewer line. This can lead to serious blockages and damage to your pipe. It is a good idea to consider professional landscaping if you encounter this problem. Proper arrangement of your trees can help minimize this risk, as can tree selection. Smaller, slower growing trees present less of a threat.
8. Why is there a bad sewer smell and flies in my home?
The smell of sewage in your home is never pleasant, and it is certainly not a good sign of a healthy sewer line. A sewer smell or the presence of sewer flies in your home is a likely indicator that your sewer line is backed up or otherwise compromised. The sooner that your situation is addressed and resolved, the better off your sewer line and the surrounding property is likely to be.
9. What is the first step to getting my sewer line inspected?
The first step in a high–quality sewer line inspection is a thorough video pipe inspection. By using the right equipment with the right amount of skill and training, a professional plumber can evaluate the situation within your sewer line. In doing so, any problems can be accurately diagnosed, eliminating the guesswork in the repair process.
