Troubleshooting for Water Sewer Network Issues

Sewer Network Issues

Are you experiencing sewer network problems? Following heavy rainfall or flooding, sewer network issues can occur -- and you may not always know that it's a sewer network issue or what precisely is wrong. Some sewer network issues will be resolvable by the city and will occur outside of your home, but the area between the public area and your home itself will be your responsibility to fix. You may need to schedule a consultation to find the source of your sewer network problem.

Water Supply Not Working or Water Pressure Weak

If you find that your water supply is not working or your water pressure is weak following a storm, you should look through your property for damage. The most common cause of this issue is actually trees. If you have a damaged tree in your yard that has been tilted by the storm -- or has fallen entirely -- it's likely that its roots have damaged a water main on your property. This water main will need to be repaired as quickly as possible to restore your water and prevent further flooding damage.

Sewer Overflows and Pipe Overloading

When sewers overflow, the only thing that most homeowners can do is install overflow relief gullies. Sewers can overflow during storms, as storm water may flow into the sewer system. When sewers overflow, sewage can intrude into the homeowner's property -- onto yards or into the property itself. Sewer water can also overflow into the pipes. Sewage may cause additional blockages within the pipes and even cause permanent damage. Our technicians can inspect your home's sewer system to identify and resolve issues on your property -- we can also advise you on what to do if any of the problems are coming from off your property, and provide temporary measures you can take to protect your home. 

If you believe that you're experiencing any of the above issues, you should contact us as soon as possible. Sewer network issues can be very serious if they aren't resolved quickly. Our technicians are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for emergency services.
