If you live in Florida you are probably too busy having fun in the sun—or working, as most locals will tell you—to worry about the problems your drains are having with the Florida weather.
But no matter where you live, at some point in your life your home will have drain problems. Here are some possible signs that you are dealing with a plumbing problem:
- You need to double flush your toilet so the waste drains properly.
- Your kitchen sink’s garbage disposal is failing to drain excess water and waste.
- Your bathtub or bathroom sink is accumulating dirt, debris and/or an abundance of water.
- You’ve recently had someone out to your home and the problem was temporarily resolved – only to return!
The biggest problem is that these drain issues can lead to unpleasant smells and further damage.
Floridians are accustomed to summer rain and with the state’s extreme heat and humidity, the frequent, quick downpours are usually welcome. However, this rain can also cause issues with homes and businesses.
Florida’s quirky weather patterns are an age-old phenomenon, often leaving permanent residents with a question of “how do I take care of my home?”
Additionally, sewer lines can become clogged over time and not just due to normal blockages from everyday use but also from problems like root systems encroaching. Whatever the reason, there is no doubt that a blocked sewer line will cause huge problems.
Signs of a clogged sewer line vary but the most obvious sign is having sewage or waste coming back out of the drains. In older homes, noticing pieces of roots could be a sign of a problem. As older pipes collapse, roots are able to get inside. If water comes through the drain and even tiny pieces of roots are visible, this may be a big issues. It is easy to get caught up in the minutia of everyday life and not notice things like this but the more observant you are the easier it will be to take care of the problem.
