Sewer Line Emergencies

Damaged sewage lines are far more than a nuisance. A cracked sewer pipe can pollute groundwater, contaminate soil, spread disease and cause severe property damage. For sewer repair you can count on, dial Elek Plumbing’s 24-hour technician team at 610.432.7001.

What Causes Home Sewer Problems?

Corrosion, freeze-thaw cycles, sludge and debris buildup, pipe pressure or tree root invasion can crack a sewer pipe. Unfortunately, your sewer problem may not be obvious at first—so be on the lookout for symptoms like these:

  • Gurgling toilets
  • Low or no water in toilets
  • Slow tub drains
  • Sewage backup
  • Lingering sewer odor
  • Multiple household clogs
  • Frequent drain problems
  • Water pooling in basement

If you have a sewer drain clog or broken pipe, have it repaired as quickly as possible. Avoid using your home’s plumbing until a professional arrives to assess the situation.
