Edina Sewer Repair: 4 Signs of Failing Pipes

There are three words which can send a shudder up the spine of any homeowner: “sewer line repair.” It’s often expensive, and homeowners are often responsible for the sewer line that runs from the street to the house. Sewer pipes in the street can often be impacted by tree roots, built-up gunk and disintegration. However, you can avoid the heartache – and financial impact – caused by Edina sewer repairs by spotting early indications of failing sewer pipes:

Slow draining tubs, sinks and showers
It can be a pain to deal with sinks, tubs and showers that drain at a slow rate. While you may want to react to the problem by pouring Drano or another liquid clog remover down the drain, this is not a good solution when dealing with older pipes, as they can be eaten away by these harsh products. Plus, a slow drain is the first sign of sewer pipe issues. Get in touch with an Edina sewer repair expert as soon as possible to take a look at the issue.

Strange sounds and smells
Another sign of needing Edina sewer repair is smells and sounds that are strange, unusual or strong. If your toilet is gurgling or a sewage sinkhole shows up in your yard, get in touch with an Edina sewer repair professional.

Water damage at the foundation level
If you’re seeing extra moisture leaking through to your home’s foundation, this could be a sign of sewer damage. Call our Edina sewer repair experts when you notice cracking around your home’s foundation or moisture on your basement walls.

Basement drain staining
Another indication of needing Edina sewer repair experts is staining around basement drains. When you notice this, please get in touch with Gene’s Water & Sewer by calling us at 612-781-3737 or Request a Free Sewer Repair Estimate.
