Strange Signs You Have a Plumbing Problem

Your plumbing system has hundreds of feet of pipes snaking throughout your entire home in Norristown, PA. Mostly, it functions at a high level, bringing clean water to you when desired, and taking away the used, dirty water. However, just like anything, it is not perfect. Many of the problems people encounter are familiar enough and do not require professional sewage cleaning services. These common problems include the following:

  • A slow drain
  • Low water pressure
  • A faulty appliance
  • A leaky faucet

Now and then, though, a plumbing problem can be mystifying. After all, each home is different. Some homes contain outdated materials for pipes that can affect the plumbing system. Other homes contain solutions that have been jerry-rigged in creative ways that result in strange problems.

The Case of The Toilet Overflow
Sometimes the use of water in one part of the home results in a problem in another location. This usually signifies a clogged pipe somewhere further down the plumbing system. For example, the use of the shower could result in the overflowing of the toilet bowl. As the shower drains, the water gets backed up by the clog and then returns to the toilet, causing it to overflow. Since this situation could result in contaminated water coming back into the home, the services of a professional water remediation company should be called for cleanup and restoration.

The Case of the Clogged Drain
Not all problem drains have the same solution. Some will quickly be solved by using a plunger or by running a plumbing snake through the pipes. Occasionally, the pipe materials can cause problems. Other times the problem is more mechanical, the result of poorly-engineered fixes in the past. If dirty water backs up from the drain, sewage cleaning services may be called for. Each home's plumbing system is a unique entity and can result in some interesting problems.
