You will want to call a plumber when you have a clog to avoid causing more problems down the line.
Avoid Flooding in Other Areas: Call a Tampa Plumber
As we covered previously, trying to fix a pipe may be something that you will want to leave to a plumber. Plunging a toilet or a drain that has water pouring out may send the water to another area of the home. If you have a clog deep within the sewer lines, the water you send from one toilet may come back up another toilet, or could come through another drain in the home. You could also end up with flooding outside of the home, which could become a health concern. This is unsanitary, and should be avoided.
If the issue is a clogged pipe, the snake can sometimes push the item into the septic tank and out of the way so the water can move again freely. If the clogged is lodged so tightly the snake doesn’t work, the plumbers may be able to remove the pipe, and push out the lodged item. Pipe replacement will be needed if the pipe is cracked or damaged, or if the item lodged can’t be removed.
The stagnant or overflowing water could also be from a poor plumbing ventilation system, which are tube vents that go out of the top of the roof. If these get clogged, water can’t flow down into the sewer system. These may need cleaned, replaced or repaired, and screens should be added to make sure debris can’t fall in. The plumbers will evaluate the plumbing system to determine what the problem is causing the clogs, and you may want to have the pipes cleaned.
