We are your full service licensed Sewer, Septic, and Drain Cleaning Company in Central Illinois!

A frustrated homeowner tries to solve her plumbing problem herself, but it appears to be more difficult than anticipated so she will likely need to call a professional plumber from Septic Specialists for their hydro-jetting services in Springfield, IL.

5 Signs Your Sewer Needs Hydro-Jetting Services

If you’re having plumbing issues with your sewer pipes, you will likely need help from a professional. Trying to treat your clogged sink with store-bought drain cleaner won’t always solve the problem, which is why you could benefit from hydro-jetting, a plumbing procedure involving the use of water pressure to clear out pipes and blast away tough clogs. If you’re interested in this service, contact our expert technicians at Sewer & Septic Specialist in Springfield, IL. We will gladly address your plumbing issue and resolve it with our advanced tools and professional service. Call us today at 217.855.5622 to schedule an appointment! If your home’s plumbing system needs hydro-jetting, you may recognize at least one of these five signs.

Drainpipes are Noisy or Loud

Some common sounds you might hear from your drains are hissing, gurgling, ticking, or screeching. Regardless of the noise, if you hear any sounds emanating from your pipes,  then there is air in your system that should not be there. The unusual sounds might be coming from a blocked vent stack, which is a pipe that extends from the sewer system to the roof and releases noxious gases while allowing the water pressure to move freely to the sewer line. If your vent stack is blocked, the negative pressure will restrict water flow as well as waste flow from your kitchen sink, shower drain, and toilet. Hydro-jetting services may be able to help this situation. Call our plumbers today for an inspection.

Sink Drain Smells Bad

If you notice a bad smell coming from the sink in your kitchen or bathroom, that could also indicate a problem that needs to be addressed by a professional plumber. When you run the water for a few minutes, if water builds up and drains slowly, there may be some kind of blockage further down. Look for other signs around the room like moisture or dried water spots under the sink that could mean there is a leak caused by extra pressure from the clog. If you’re not sure what the problem is or how to treat it, call in the professionals from Sewer & Septic Specialist, who are trained to handle these situations. We’ll perform an inspection and determine the source of the problem and how to treat it. We’re proud of our hydro-jetting service which thoroughly cleans and unclogs pipes so that they can function like new again.

Pipes are Draining Slowly

A pipe that drains slowly could be a localized plumbing issue or could be due to the system getting older and not functioning as well over time. However, it could also suggest a more serious issue, so when in doubt, call the professionals to be sure of the problem. You can buy a drain cleaner from the store and see if that helps the issue, but be aware that you might not understand the whole problem without having a professional drain cleaning service performed. You don’t necessarily want to treat the plumbing issue on a surface level when the source is likely deeper. Our expert plumbers can perform a thorough inspection that can probe deep into your pipes to identify the cause of the problem. Then they can use their hydro-jetting tool to dislodge the blockage and clean the pipes to restore their functionality.

Pipes are Old or Deteriorating

If your home is older, it is naturally more likely to have problems with its pipes, as they are also older and deteriorating over time. Hopefully, your plumbing system doesn’t have to be replaced. A simpler solution, if the experienced plumber deems it appropriate, would be to use a hydro-jetting service. This tool will use a high level of water pressure to thoroughly clean your pipes, which should improve their function and help them to last a few more years. With your home’s plumbing system, you don’t want to treat the problem superficially and pray for the best. You want the professional opinion of an expert in the field to help you treat the problem you’re experiencing before it manifests into a more serious, and likely more expensive, issue. In every situation, our technicians promise to always consider your budget and give you honest advice and fair pricing.

Water Bill Has Increased

An increase in your water bill could be indicative of a more significant plumbing problem beyond a simple clogged drain. It could be the first sign that something is off with your system so it’s worth looking into if you start to see a pattern in your climbing water bills. Other signs might come later, but the sooner you can catch the problem, the faster we can treat it. Call our licensed plumbers at Sewer & Septic Specialist and request an inspection of your entire system, from the points of use in your home to the sewer line in the street. He will then provide you with your options, including our successful hydro-jetting service which can add years to the function of your pipes by giving them proper cleaning and eradicating any blockages and obstructions which may be causing your plumbing problems. We will always treat your situation with simple solutions first to keep your budget in mind and make the repair process as easy as possible for you.
