If you Have Problems with your Sewer System, Bio-One Can Help

Sewer lines are an essential part of your home's plumbing system, and when they start to malfunction, they can be a big problem. If you're having issues with your sanitary sewer lines, Bio-One can help. We're experts at cleaning and repairing sewer lines, and we'll work quickly to get your home back up and running smoothly.


Common problems with Sewer Lines


Sewer lines are one of the most critical parts of your home's plumbing system, but they are also one of the most prone to problems. While most sewer line issues can be fixed relatively easily, some can be quite serious and require the attention of a professional. Here are some of the most common problems with sewer lines:




The most common problem that occurs with sewer lines is a clog. Clogs can be caused by various things, including grease (from cooking oil!), hair, toilet paper, and even tree roots. If you have a clog in your sewer line, it is important to act quickly to remove it. Clogs can cause sewage to back up into your home, which can be a health hazard.




Another common problem that occurs with sewer lines is a leak. Leaks can be caused by sewer line cracks, joint failures, or breaks in the pipe. If you have a leak in your sewer line, it is important to act quickly to repair it.


Root intrusion


One of the most severe problems that can occur with sewer lines is root intrusion. Root intrusion occurs when tree roots growing near the sewer line penetrate the pipe and begin to grow inside of it. This can cause the pipe to become blocked or even break. Root intrusion is a serious problem that should be fixed by a professional.




Corrosion is another common problem that occurs with sewer lines. Corrosion can be caused by various things, including age, chemicals, and water. If you have corrosion in your sewer line, it is crucial to act quickly to repair it.


Structural problems


Structural problems can also occur with sewer lines. Structural issues can be caused by various things, including age, ground movement, and water. Structural problems can cause the pipe to become blocked or even break.

Common areas of the house prone to experiencing sewer backups.


The most common areas of the house that are prone to experiencing sewer backups are the kitchen, bathroom, and laundry room. This is because these rooms typically have the highest concentration of plumbing fixtures, leading to a backup if there is a blockage in the main line.


Houses with basement foundations are also more susceptible to basement flooding and backups, as there is often a floor drain in the basement that can become clogged.


Property owners can take a few proactive measures to help prevent sewage backups, including the following:


  • Install a floor drains with backflow preventers

  • Properly maintain grease traps and interceptors

  • Avoid placing foreign objects down the toilet or drain line

  • Regularly inspect and clean septic tanks

  • Have the sewer line inspected and cleaned by a professional every few years.

  • If a sewer backup does occur, it is crucial to contact a professional plumber as soon as possible to clear the blockage and restore proper drainage.


Additionally, homeowners should avoid using any plumbing fixtures in the affected area until the backup has been resolved, as this can spread the blockage and cause further damage.


Health problems associated with sewage backups


Sewage backups can cause several health problems, including respiratory and skin infections and gastrointestinal illnesses. In addition, sewage backups can lead to the spread of harmful bacteria and viruses, posing a severe health risk to people with weakened immune systems. If you come into contact with sewage-contaminated water or soil, it is important to wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water and to avoid contact with your eyes, nose, and mouth.


If you have any cuts or open wounds on your body, it is also essential to keep them clean and covered to prevent infection. If you develop any symptoms after coming into contact with wastewater, see a doctor as soon as possible.
