Sewer smells bothering you?If you smell sewer odors inside or around your home, it's essential to take prompt action to identify and resolve the source of the smell. Sewer odors can indicate potential plumbing issues or sewage system problems that may need attention. Here's what you can do:1. Check for internal plumbing issues: Inspect all the drains in your home, including sinks, showers, bathtubs, and toilets. Ensure that the water traps (the U-shaped bend in the pipes) have water in them. The water traps act as a barrier to prevent sewer gases from entering your living spaces. If a trap has dried out or become compromised, pour water into the drain to refill it.2. Inspect the sewer lateral: If the sewer odor persists, it could be coming from the sewer lateral—the pipe connecting your property's plumbing to the public sewer system. Look for signs of standing water or dampness near the sewer access point (typically found outside your home). If you notice any signs of a leak or damage, contact a professional plumber to inspect and repair the sewer lateral.3. Check for clogs or blockages: Sewer odors can result from clogs or blockages in your drains or sewer lines. Attempt to clear any minor clogs using methods such as boiling water, baking soda and vinegar, or a plunger. If the issue persists or is more severe, contact a plumber for professional help.4. Inspect vent pipes: Plumbing systems have vent pipes that allow sewer gases to escape safely outside your home. Make sure these vent pipes are not blocked or damaged, as this can cause sewer odors to build up inside your living spaces.5. Examine floor drains: Floor drains, often found in basements or garages, can sometimes be a source of sewer odors. Pour water down these drains to refill the traps and prevent sewer gases from escaping.6. Check the toilet wax ring: If the sewer smell is particularly strong around the base of your toilet, the wax ring that seals the toilet to the floor might be damaged. In this case, the ring should be replaced by a professional plumber.7. Consider external factors: Sometimes, sewer odors may not be originating from your home but could be coming from nearby sewage systems or construction work. If this is the case, the issue may resolve on its own once the external problem is addressed.Remember that sewer odors can be a sign of more significant plumbing or sewage system problems, so it's crucial to address the issue promptly to prevent further damage and potential health risks. ...

Clearing a clogged drain is a common household issue that can be resolved with some simple techniques. Here's how you can do it:1. Boiling water: For minor clogs, start by boiling a pot of water. Pour the boiling water directly into the drain in two to three stages, allowing a few seconds between each pour. The hot water can help break down grease and flush away minor blockages.2. Plunger: A plunger can be effective in dislodging clogs in sinks and tubs. Ensure there is enough water in the basin to cover the plunger's rubber cup. Place the plunger over the drain and pump it up and down forcefully several times. On the last pump, pull the plunger up quickly to create pressure and hopefully clear the clog.3. Baking soda and vinegar: Mix 1/2 cup of baking soda with 1/2 cup of white vinegar. Pour this mixture down the drain and immediately cover the drain with a plug or a cloth to contain the chemical reaction. The foaming action can help break down organic material and clear minor clogs. After 15-30 minutes, pour boiling water down the drain to flush away the loosened debris.4. Plumber's snake (drain auger): A plumber's snake is a flexible, long tool designed to reach deep into the drain and break up clogs. Insert the snake into the drain and rotate it clockwise while gently pushing it forward. This should help dislodge the clog, making it easier to flush away.5. Remove and clean the trap: Underneath sinks, there is usually a U-shaped pipe called the trap, which often collects debris and causes clogs. Place a bucket or container underneath the trap to catch any water and debris. Use a wrench to loosen the nuts on both ends of the trap and remove it. Clean out any gunk and rinse the trap before reattaching it.6. Chemical drain cleaners: Chemical drain cleaners can be used for stubborn clogs, but they should be used with caution. Follow the manufacturer's instructions, and wear appropriate safety gear, such as gloves and eye protection. Be aware that these chemicals can be harsh and may damage older pipes or fixtures.To prevent future clogs, avoid disposing of grease, coffee grounds, food scraps, hair, and other debris down the drains. Use drain covers to catch large particles, and perform regular maintenance to keep your drains clean and clear. ... See MoreSee Less

Ah here comes the fall rain. It feels like summer has officially ended now. Bring on the foliage! Just remember, wet weather leads to ground saturation. Rain water will find the path of least resistance which in many cases is a broken sewer lateral. Have you noticed slow drainage or sewer backups during wet weather events? You are not alone. The laterals are broken and need help! ... See MoreSee Less
