Dealing with sewage leaks is never fun. You need a company that has experience dealing with such issues. A company like Rocky’s Plumbing can help you navigate through finding, repairing, and replacement if needed for any sewage leaks you might have. We have served the El Paso area for years and understand the local sewage lines. Of course, the issue may not be finding a company to handle the problem. The issue might be knowing you even have a problem. After all, sewage lines are buried underground, how can you tell if something is wrong? If you are unsure if you even have a problem, there are signs you can watch for.
The most common and noticeable sign of possible sewage leaks is noticing strange smells or sounds. Smells may seem like an obvious one, but often people can mistake a strange smell for something next door or passing by. The way to tell if it coming from your home is by seeing if it fairly constant. If you keep smelling the same stink in the same area for more than 3 days, then you need to get a plumber into your home. If you also find patches of moisture, and there is also a smell coming from it, then hire a qualified plumber immediately.
Running Water Sound
Sounds also can signal a sewage leak. The sounds you are likely to hear is running water. To test this, make sure all the water in the home is off. If you hear running water through the walls, or in the bathroom, then you might have a leak. An experienced plumber will be able to do further tests to find the location of the leak after this.
High Water Bill
One other sign of sewage leaks is when you have a higher than normal water bill. Having an unexpected spike is a sign of excess water being wasted or used to make up the difference. This is the surest sign that you have a leak in your house. In order to test this out, shut off the water your house and monitor the water being used. If you see water still being used when everything is off, then you know you have sewage leaks.
