SEWER & SEPTIC SERVICE
What are the warning signs of a sewer system backup?
Water backup from the toilet, shower or one sink drain can be an early sign
Multiple drain backups
Any combination of drain backups involving the toilet
Strong sewage odor coming from drains or outside near your home
Gurgling sounds coming from your drains or toilet
Pools of water around the basement floor drain
Strange drain behavior: If any drain in your home (like the kitchen sink or washing machine drain) gurgles and/or backs up into the bathtub or basement drain, it could be a widespread problem with the main sewer line.
If the symptoms are only in one drain or area, you may have an isolated plumbing problem in a secondary line. If the bathroom sink doesn’t drain or backs up into the bathtub, but the toilet still flushes normally you may not have a sewer backup. Brooklyn sewer cleaning is available 24/7 for emergency plumbing repairs and we don’t charge overtime.
SEPTIC SYSTEM BACKUPS
Septic tank problems and backups have a potential for more wide-ranging problems than a sink backup or toilet clog. These should be handled quickly by an experienced plumber, ideally at the slow drain stage before complete stoppage to prevent system-wide problems throughout your home. A septic backup could result in large costs to remediate any property damage and contamination, including environmental cleanup. Remember, YourBrooklyn Sewer & Drain Cleaners are here to help prevent such tragedies.
What are the warning signs of a septic system backup?
Toilet, shower or one sink drain backups
Sewage backup (smelly black liquid) in toilets and/or drains
Slow flushing and draining toilet
More than one drain in the house is running slowly
Wastewater seeping from the ground near your septic system, which may or may not have an odor
Lots of very green grass over the septic system, even during dry, hot weather
Bacteria in your well. Liquid from your septic system could flow into and contaminate your drinking water well through the ground. Have your water tested by the local health department if you suspect a problem
Algae or weeds growing in a pond near your house. This can be caused by septic system waste discharging into surface water
Bad odors around the house can be caused by incorrectly vented or failing septic systems
Contact The Original 718 at the first sign of a septic problem. Get professional help from our experienced plumbers immediately to help avoid property contamination, environmental issues and serious health threats like dysentery or hepatitis.
TREE ROOT INTRUSIONS
Your Brooklyn Sewer & Drain Cleaners are experts at repairing septic and sewer systems damaged by tree roots. Our skilled plumbing professionals have repaired and re-piped all types of plumbing systems to accommodate many different property layouts. Rest assured we have this complex process down to a science.
Tree roots can be destructive to your plumbing pipes even when trees are far from the house. Pipe condensation or leaky pipes will actually attract roots in search of nourishment. Tree roots can travel and easily slip through tiny separations in pipe sections, small holes, or cracks. Once water is discovered the tree begins stepping up root growth in that area making the hole bigger and clogging your whole sewer system — before bursting the pipe.
What are the signs of tree root intrusion?
Sewage backing up into your bathtub and/or toilet
No water in the toilet
Gurgling sounds from your toilet
The tub not draining properly
Possible Tree Root Intrusion Solutions
For a longer-term solution, your Original technician can clean the pipe using pressurized water jets, thoroughly scouring the line to eliminate grease buildup, debris, and tree roots.
A permanent solution where we line your sewer pipe with a sleeve to seal it, thus eliminating water leakage. Your Original Plumber in Queens technician will clean the pipe and apply lining material which hardens over several hours. With this method we avoid trenching and the need for demolition of walls or other structures.
Pipe bursting: Another permanent fix. Your Original Plumber in Queens can instead use hydraulics to break apart your old sewer pipe (whether clay, cast iron or PVC) and simultaneously install a new seamless pipe.
What You Can Do to Prevent a Backup
Avoid septic system problems with regular maintenance, including regular pumping of the tank, and avoid planting trees on the absorption field.
Your sewer should be out of sight and out of mind! If it isn’t, heed the warning signs of sewer system or sewage backup and contact us right away. Brooklyn sewer cleaning is available 24/7 for emergency plumbing repairs and we don’t charge overtime.
