5 Signs You’re in Need of a Sewer Line Inspection

Benjamin Franklin Plumbing® of Pompton Lakes provides sewer line inspections for several reasons. Sewer line inspections are beneficial for homeowners who want to check out the quality of the sewer line in their new home. It’s valuable to examine the sewer line before moving in or fully beginning to use the plumbing system.

Unfortunately, more often than not, sewer line inspections are performed due to emergency repairs. Emergency inspections by Benjamin Franklin Plumbing® of Pompton Lakes resolve problems promptly and efficiently. Here are five signs that you need a sewer line inspection:

1) Unpleasant Odors

A telltale sign that your sewer line needs a repair or inspection is foul smells. A strange smell coming from your bathroom, basement, or outside of your home is not normal. If you suspect that the odor is coming from your plumbing system, it’s crucial to contact a professional immediately.

2) Cracks

If you take note of cracks on the walls, the ceiling, or the foundation of your home, you could very well have a sewer issue. There is always the possibility that a crack is part of a more significant issue at hand. It’s better safe than sorry, so have a member of our Benjamin Franklin Plumbing® of Pompton Lakes team check it out.

3) Low Water Levels 

If the water level in your toilet is constantly changing, you could very well have sewer line damage. It can be challenging to identify the exact cause of low water levels, but a plumber can help you out tremendously.

4) Slow Draining 

Slow draining of sinks, bathtubs, and toilets, is one of the most evident signs that you are experiencing a plumbing issue. Although slow moving drains are common, if it happens consistently and severely, there may be a more significant issue at hand. Contact a professional if you are experiencing slow draining in your home. 

5) Mold

A more distinct indication that you are experiencing serious plumbing issues is mold. Mold or mildew growing in your home is unhealthy and should be examined. Don’t disregard the mold in your home! Schedule an appointment with Benjamin Franklin Plumbing® of Pompton Lakes today.
