The Warning Signs Your Drains Are Failing

In Texas, where many homes are built on slab foundations, recognizing the signs of failing sewage pipes beneath your home is crucial to preventing significant damage and costly repairs. Here are the key indicators that the sewage pipes under your slab might be in trouble:

  • Frequent Backups: Regular backups in toilets and drains can indicate blockages or breaks in your sewage pipes, especially if they occur in the lowest points of your home.

  • Unexplained Wet Spots: Moisture or wet spots on your floors, particularly when not associated with any known spills, can signal a leak in the sewage pipes beneath your slab.

  • Foul Odors: Persistent sewer gas smells inside your home or around your property could be escaping from cracks or holes in your underground sewage pipes.

  • Cracks in Foundation: Visible cracks in your home's foundation or walls might be a sign of shifting soil due to a leaking sewage pipe, which can erode the ground underneath.

  • Soggy or Uneven Ground: If the ground around your home becomes unexpectedly soggy or you notice uneven areas in your yard, it could be due to sewage leaking and saturating the soil.

  • Insect or Rodent Infestations: An unusual increase in pests can be attributed to sewage pipe damage, as cracks provide an entry point into your home for rodents and insects.

  • Lush Patches in Yard: Areas of your lawn that are unusually lush or green compared to the rest might be directly over a sewage leak, where the leaking effluent acts as a fertilizer.

  • Slow Draining: Slow drains throughout your house, not just in one area, can indicate a systemic problem with your sewage lines under the slab.

If you're experiencing any of these warning signs, it's important to address the issue promptly to avoid further damage. Proven Plumbing specializes in diagnosing and repairing damaged sewage pipes beneath Texas homes. Our services include camera inspections to accurately identify the problem, precise repairs to minimize disruption, and comprehensive solutions to protect your home and foundation.
