Why is there an odor coming from my drains?
There are actually a variety of potential culprits when it comes to strange odors emanating from your drains. Clogs and bacteria stemming from hair, food, and other substances that find their way down your drain can cause clogs in pipes and release a stench from bacteria buildup. Another possibility is that sewer gas is rising through your drains, especially when the drain traps are empty. You may also have a pipe blockage, which you can troubleshoot by running your faucet and checking to make sure the water doesn’t begin pooling in the sink after a few minutes. If it does, and an odor is accompanying it, you likely have a pipe blockage. Our expert plumbing technicians will be able to determine your precise problem quickly, so that you can get rid of the stink once and for all.
There’s sewage backup coming from my drains. What do I do?
The first thing you should do if you are experiencing sewage backup is discontinue using the drain. Contact your local plumbing professional for emergency repairs. Turn off you water supply and your electricity. Turning off your electricity is always the safest choice in order to keep wastewater from your outlets as well as your central HVAC system. Clear anything away from the area that could be susceptible to water damage, and refrain from using liquid drain cleaners as they will likely not clear the clog and can result in major damage to your plumbing system. Your plumber will be able to diagnose the cause of your backup and provide a plan of action to effectively remove your clog!
What causes sewer obstructions?
Most commonly, sewer obstructions are caused by the following:
- Build-up of grease, debris or foreign objects in the sewer line
- Partial or complete blockage caused by tree root infiltration
- Sewer line collapse caused by old and deteriorated sewer pipes
- Debris entering the sewer system from illegal pipe connections
While this is not a comprehensive list, it’s a good place to start. If you suspect you have a sewer obstruction, contact Benjamin Franklin Plumbing and we will thoroughly inspect your system with our innovative technology in order to get you the answer and solutions you need.
Does homeowners insurance cover sewer line replacement?
While it’s rare that your homeowner’s insurance will cover sewer line replacement (or repair) it’s not completely out of the realm of possibility. If your sewer line was damaged by a third party (e.g. a neighbor, tenant, or contractor) it may be covered. However, if the age is the ultimate factor in their need to be replaced, you may be out of luck. Either way, it’s a good idea to check with your insurance provider to rule out the possibility completely.
