Winter Rains Are Notorious for Causing Home Plumbing Issues

How to be prepared with Always Affordable Plumbing

Have you ever noticed that the first big storm of the season usually brings more than just rain? It usually brings with it a slew of issues around the house that you didn’t even know were issues. This could include things like a roof leak, or plugged gutters. It can also mean things related to your home plumbing.

Storm Drains Backing Up

Many of our clients have experienced sewer back-up in their house when a large storm comes. There are many different reasons that could cause this. Usually if it is related to a large storm, then it has to do with the city main sewer lines. The city sewer lines can’t keep up with the rain water, and they back-up, which then back-up into your house main sewer line. While you can’t do anything to fix the city sewer line yourself, there are still things you can do to make sure your home plumbing is ready for anything.

Preventing Home Plumbing Issues is Easy

The easiest place to start is to call the city and let them know there is a possible drainage problem that is causing a back-up into your main sewer line. They will send a crew out to inspect the area and resolve any clogs, debris, or pipe issues. However, the city won’t do anything about making sure the main sewer line from your house is operating properly. They can only fix issues on the “street” side of the sewer line. As soon as the sewer line is on your property, it will be your responsibility to identify and correct any home plumbing issues.

This is where Always Affordable Plumbing makes it easy for you. Our technicians can provide you with a whole house plumbing inspection, FOR FREE, with no obligation. This can include identifying any potential problems inside the house, as well as with the main line that leads out to the street.

Common Main Line Issues

If your main line is backing up, it could be because of things other than the city sewer being overwhelmed by rain. Common home plumbing issues related to the main line can include:

  • root invasion
  • cracks in the main line
  • broken backwater valve

Many of these are very common in older homes but are not easily discovered until there is a major back-up. Always Affordable Plumbing knows the important warning signs to look for that point towards an issue, so that you can fix it before it becomes a major problem. Additionally, our technicians are equipped with the tools and training to make sure we accurately diagnose an issue, and offer you the best possible options for fixing it.
