Don’t get sick from a sewer system


A functional sewerage system is essential to keeping your household healthy. Key to the system is that it is one-way: waste is carried away by the sewerage system, but it should never come back. This principal keeps us safe from the bacteria from human waste, which is classified as a biohazard. When everything is working normally, we do not give the sewage system a second thought. However, if your system is suffering from a blockage or other damage, it may not work as it should. This will be noticeable, and is a signal to you that you need to call in a plumber to remediate the situation.

At first, you may notice that drainage is a little slower than usual. There may be an unpleasant odour coming from your drains. As the whole system is connected, symptoms may come from bathroom or kitchen sinks or even from the shower drain. At this point, you should never ignore the issue hoping it may get better on its own – this is because it could get worse! Best to call a plumber, such as our specialist team at Sydney Blocked Drains & Pipe Relining, to take a look and fix it before it turns into a serious and potentially dangerous problem. We have a $0 call-out fee, so if it turns out nothing is wrong, you have nothing to lose. If the problem is emergent, it is better to address it as soon as possible. Sometimes a cheap and easy fix is possible if the problem is caught early enough. However, if it has been allowed to deteriorate, the repairs can become much more involved and extensive.

If you have left it to the point where sewage has come back through the system and is leaking into your bathroom or elsewhere in your home, it is well passed time to call in a plumber. This is where it comes in handy that we at Sydney Blocked Drains & Pipe Relining are available 24/7 to deal with any situations that require urgent attention. We specialise in relining, which repairs broken or damaged pipes so that they are like new for decades to come. However, this is not the solution for all situations – as trained and experienced plumbers, we are able to diagnose the issues with your sewerage system and recommend the best solution.

It is vitally important that problems with your sewerage system are addressed straight away as you could become extremely sick from exposure to human waste. The bacteria contained within can result in you becoming temporarily ill or contract an incurable disease which will be with you for life. In extreme cases or for people with suppressed immune systems, the results can be deadly. That is why if you have a sewage leak, you need to call in a plumber to address the situation straight away. It not worth risking your health and that of your family. Overflowing pipes are alarming, but they can be fixed quite quickly with the right tools and expertise.
