When to Repair Your Home’s Sewer Lines

blocked sewer line

Sewer line clogs are no joke. In the average home, we understand that sewer lines are important to transport waste from our homes to the underground sewer main. While its function is crucial, few homeowners give much thought to its maintenance. Still, it is important to understand the signs of a sewer line clog and what you can do to avoid a costly sewer repair.

A sewer line clog often leads to a raw sewage backup that comes out the drains, and this can cause extensive damage to your home. It is also an expensive fix for any homeowner. Sewer line replacements are a major home repair, so all homeowners need to understand early symptoms that may lead to potentially severe sewer line problems, as well as plumbing issues.

One of the most common early signs of a sewer that is in need of repair is the clogged drain or toilet. This means that the water backs up out of the drain or toilet, and can be as minor as a gurgling sound coming from your home’s drains. Some experts say that this is your home telling you what is wrong, and they are correct. If you notice that your drains or toilet are gurgling, make sure to call a plumber as soon as you can and schedule an evaluation for repair. You want to nip this problem in the bud before it becomes more severe and expensive.

tree roots can block your sewer line

Monitor the tree roots in your yard. Tree roots are too often the primary cause of a clogged sewer line, although, in some newer homes, this cause is not as common. Roots in the ground are known to break drain pipes as they grow, especially if the pipes in your home or yard are older. The aforementioned gurgling sounds sometimes come from these roots making their way into your home’s piping system. If you find that this is the cause of drain issues, immediately start repairs – these can be extremely costly if left untouched.

For clogs in your home that are due to a blocked sewer drain, you will need to release the pressure on the sewer pipes. Shut off the water at the source, especially the mains if it is a clog in the main line. When homeowners are able to access the sewer cleanout line, they are able to remove the cleanout cap during a backup, and this will release the pressure on the pipes. When you remove the cap, the water is drained outside instead of inside your home where it can cause thousands of dollars in damages.

If you are unsure about whether you are having sewer drain issues, call a trustworthy local plumber and request a camera inspection of the piping system around your home. A professional will run a cable, called an auger or a drain snake, through a clog to unblock and release it. This is a simple and inexpensive repair. It can also mean finding out that a simple clog is much more, and then you can work with a professional to understand and repair any more severe issues that you may experience with your home’s sewer drains. Be careful, however: some companies do this as a means to charge you more money for repairs you may not need.

Do not use chemically-based drain cleaners, as avoiding these will you to avoid most major plumbing problems. It will also keep your lines clean – proper flow is crucial. Do not flush wet wipes that are started as non-flushable such as baby wipes, or any feminine hygiene products. Maintenance and prevention are often the best solutions to avoid a major sewer line repair.

Flooring For Carports

Many of us have at least one car or van per household. And if we happen to have a small sized family then we might even have two or three! So whereon earth do we put all these cars? Well that’s a very good question and we hope to answer it very briefly in the following article.

One particular solution that is very popular in Australia is to build a carport. A carport is a shelter with no enclosed sides as opposed to a garage which is a fully enclosed area to house your car. The advantage to using a carport is that it typically costs far less then a garage to build.

Because this particular building is set outdoors the type of flooring you’ll find in this shelter will not be your typical timber but instead a good dose of concrete. So as far as we can help with regards to flooring, well…there’s not much on that front that we can do, other than to set down a beautiful persian rug, but I have a feeling it wouldn’t quite fit in it’s surroundings! Plus I think after a few brief moments, that carpet will need a desperate wash!

The size of a carport will depend on the number of cars you’d like to have shelter it. Usually, and what is far more common, is that people only need a single carport but of course if you have more than one car you can always opt for a double sized carport and these are usually built wider rather than longer. The downside to this of course is that you need a larger footprint to build the car shelter on.

There are many designers you can choose from and if you live in Australia or Canada, then you’ll be spoiled rotten. In Australia, Custom Outdoor Living are a custom home builder, based in Melbourne who specialise in building carports. If you’re in the UK, you can check out the company below.

Wide Choice of Standard Designs

The “Classic Country” SolidLox Traditional Car Port range consists of the most popular requested sizes – 1, 2 or 3 bay, with high pitch (40 – 45 degree) or Low pitch (up to 25 deg) roof types. The low pitch roof keeps the overall height of the carport within the 4 metre rule, whilst the high pitch provides enough height to enable you to put a room in the roof.

All are available in a choice of Timbers: Green Oak, Douglas Fir or Redwood, and can also be supplied with a 45 degree Bar End, or a 40 degree Hipped Roof (Please call for pricing).
