How do you know when your sewer line needs to be repaired?
Cracked or damaged sewer lines can be caused by multiple reasons such as:
- Severe temperatures
- Ground shifting
- Intrusive tree roots
It is important to have sewer line issues dealt with quickly. You do not want to put this off. If you have a failing sewer line it will only get worse the longer you hold out.
The very last thing you want is a sewer line emergency, here are a couple of things to indicate that your sewer line might be in need of repair:
- Stinky Drains
- Slow drains
- Foundational Water Damage
If you notice any of these, your sewer line should really be inspected at your earliest convenience to prevent further damage to your home.
How do you determine if professional drain cleaning is necessary?
Drain cleaning is an reliable way to maintain your pipes in good condition and keep water flowing properly. Professional drain cleaning might be needed if any of the following problems are present:

How do you know your water heater needs to be replaced?
It can be tempting to put off replacing your water heater. There never seems to be a good time to do it. Between 7-10 years is the most you can expect your water heater to last. If you have an older model that is starting to show signs of failing, you might want to start thinking about a replacement. Installing a new, more efficient unit will help you save on repair bills that may start to pile up as your unit ages.
Here are some signals that it could be time to replace your water heater:
- Leaking tank: If you notice puddles near the bottom of the tank, this is a sure sign that the tank is leaking. This is often due to corrosion from minerals and sediments in the water. A leaking tank cannot be handled with a quick repair. More often than not, you will need to completely replace your water heater. Don’t worry, we will help you find the best unit that suits your budget and needs.
- Poor water quality: Starting to detect rust or sediment in your water? This is another sign that the tank is corroded, and that your water heater should be replaced.
- Lack of hot water: Has there been a change in your water temperature? Are you using up hot water too soon? There may be an primary issue with your water heater that requires a replacement. We will examine your unit and offer you a cost-effective option.
Benefits of Trenchless Sewer Repair
If you don’t want to dig down to the sewer line to repair it we have good news. Many homeowners in the region opt for trenchless sewer line repairs. There are many advantages to trenchless repair. They include:
- Time – Excavating is the largest part of a sewer line repair. Enabling a repair without having to dig can save a lot of time.
- Cost – Without having to dig to get to the pipes, you will save money on the repair.
- Damage – If your sewer line repair is needed somewhere in your yard or below a building, digging to the repair will damage your lawn or basement. A trenchless repair keeps your gardening intact.
Ask our experts at Vanguard if a trenchless sewer repair is your best option.
How do you determine if it’s time to repipe?
Repiping your home is a monumental task. Many homeowners will try to avoid repiping for as long as possible but there are some indicators that you may observe that mean you definitely need to repipe. A number of signs include a drastic change to your water in the color or smell, water pressure problems and multiple repairs and leaks popping up. You might have to consider repiping if you are dealing with any of these issues.
Tips to Avoid a Clogged Toilet
It should come as no great surprise that this is one of the most common plumbing problems in your home. The truth is, if a clogged toilet is dismissed it can lead to more expensive and serious issues. Here are some things you can do to make sure it happens more infrequently:
- Place a small trash can next to the toilet for non water soluble items such as paper towels and diapers.
- Use less toilet paper.
- Flush twice if necessary.
- Using childproof locks on the toilet seat so that children cannot flush foreign objects.
