Do You Need New Water and Sewer Systems?



Sometimes, whether or not you need new water and sewer systems in your Minnetonka home isn’t glaringly obvious to you, especially if you aren’t that experienced in this realm. Here are four signs to watch out for when determining if you need to look into getting these systems fixed.

The first thing to look for when trying to figure out if you need new water and sewer systems is your plumbing pipes. Are they old and corroded? Are they cracked? Can you spot any water leaks, even small ones? If you answered yes to any of these questions, it’s time to hire professionals, like the ones at Gene’s Water and Sewer, to come out and fix them.

Speaking of cracked pipes, this is another huge sign that you might need new water and sewer systems installed. Tree roots are a main culprit of cracked pipes, especially if your home’s landscaping is more than 20 years old. If you aren’t sure if tree roots are a problem, there are plenty of people you can call for help, like our team here at Gene’s Water and Sewer.

Old homes are more prone to needing new water and sewer systems too. In general, homes that are more than 40 years old are the ones that really need these systems reassessed. An experienced plumber can help figure out of your home’s age is a factor in needing these new systems.

Finally, are you having a problem with your toilets? Do you hear strange sounds coming from them, especially after you’ve flushed? If so, this is another indication that new water and sewer systems might be in store for you.
