Septic & Sewer Problems

Septic and sewer problems are amongst the most commonly encountered domestic, commercial, and industrial plumbing jobs. A damaged, blocked, or clogged sewer drain or septic system can stop toilets and other fixtures from working properly, and can even result in a back-up of sewerage material which results in flooding and hazardous spills.

Sewer drains are probably the most important element of modern plumbing systems, as they remove hazardous waste material from our buildings and ensure that the clean water supply is not polluted with waste particles.

What Causes Blockages

A blocked sewer can also result in waste water and material coming up through floor drains, as these are the lowest point in your plumbing system. When water builds up in the system due to a blockage, it will start to flow back out through the lowest point. If you don’t have floor drains, then material may flow back up through the bathtub drain, shower drain, or toilet, as these are the next lowest fixtures in your plumbing system.

Due to the heavy use they receive, sewers are prone to a variety of problems, the most common of which is a blockage or clog in the sewer drain.
