Bathroom Renovations 101: Running New Pipes

When I decided to add a pedestal sink and claw foot tub to my bathroom, I had no idea how much new plumbing I had to run. Since I had never run pipes before, I wasn't sure how to do it properly. I did a lot of research before I started so that I could be sure that I was doing it right. As I was researching, I knew that it would be helpful to have all of the information I found in one place. That was the inspiration for this site. I hope that the plumbing resources help you with your next home improvement project.

When Is It Time To Call A Plumber For Your Sewage Line

It is vital for you to know just when you should make the call for plumbing assistance. All you have to do is spend a little amount of time reading through the following signs that indicate it is time to reach out for some professional help with your sewage line.

The Toilet Water And Waste Struggle To Go Down Into The Sewage Line

When you flush the toilet, there really should not be too much of an effort to get everything to go down in one shot. A clog can be an issue that can sometimes arise, especially when someone uses too much toilet paper or when someone flushes their hygiene products. If it isn't that and you find that it is happening more and more often, it is likely that there is a major issue somewhere down in your sewage line. You will need to hire a residential plumbing contractor who can snake the line and possibly send a camera through it in order to determine the cause of the bathroom issue.

Your Yard Is Getting Wet When It Shouldn't Be

If you are spotting wet spots in your yard, when it has not even been raining, you probably have an issue with your sewage drain line. Even the small cracks in the sewage drain lines can be very problematic so it is not something that you want to avoid fixing. Eventually the crack will get worse and it could result in sewage water and waste from being unable to pass. That water and waste would then flow back into your home through the sink and tub drains. That is a toxic mess that would require professionals to clean up so you want to avoid this from happening if at all possible.

Your Home Smells Like Sewage

Even if it seems as though the toilet is working fine and you do not notice any damp areas in your yard, you could still have a serious problem if you are smelling sewage in your home. Try to determine if the smell is coming out of specific drains in the house or all of them. Then again, you might find that the smell is coming from your basement or in the crawl space under your home. Either way, you will need to call a residential plumbing contractor.

The sooner you contact a professional residential plumbing contractor, the sooner your sewage problem can be resolved.
