Symptoms of a Sewage or Water Line Problem

Unfortunately, more often than not, we don’t always know there’s a sewer or water line issue until it’s too late. If you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms, call the experts before it’s too late.

Slow draining sinks, showers, tubs and toilets

If you’re noticing that it’s taking more time than usual for the water to drain from your kitchen or bathroom appliances, it could be due to a blocked, deteriorating or collapsed sewer line.

Decreased water pressure, increased water bills

Ultimately, if you’re dealing with a broken water line, there’s going to be a spike in costs as you’re unknowingly using and wasting water! It’s escaping before it makes it to your faucet and leaking somewhere. It’s our job to work out where!

Standing water in the basement or yard, or a more noticeably green and lush patch of grass

If water is gathering in one spot – where it shouldn’t be – this is a symptom of a compromised sewer or water line leaking underground. Particularly lush looking grass could unfortunately be a sign that it’s receiving more water than elsewhere, and you have a potential break on your hands.

Water pooling or damp patches on the floor

A blocked pipe will slowly but surely make itself known by creating leaks in various different places. These can often result in damp patches like the one pictured – if you spy one of these developing, don’t hesitate to call an expert like us to identify the problem and make repairs before it gets any worse.

Indentations, cracks or sink holes in your yard or foundations

Uneven surfaces and developing sink holes can be a sign of either a water line problem or a sewer issue – in worst case scenarios, both.
