Septic Tank Specialist Plumbing Company
Did you know Cleveland, TN is the 14th largest city in the state? However, our region is blessed with the natural beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Cherokee National Forest, and the Hiwassee and Tennessee Rivers.
The abundance of wilderness surrounding this area is part of the reason many local households rely on a septic tank system.
Septic tank systems provide many homes with the ability to live in the wilderness without sacrificing modern conveniences like plumbing. However, there are a few important details before choosing to rent or buy a home that depends on an on-site sewage facility (OSSF).
Septic tank plumbing is a construct buried underground built from a mixture of fiberglass, plastic, and concrete. The sewage alcove breaks down the solid waste.
On-site sewage facilities (OSSF) are most often applied in areas where the household waste cannot be cleaned and filtered by the city’s sewage system – like many places surrounding this area.
Septic tank systems require a plumbing company that’s trained in responding to septic tank problems. Severe problems like wastewater polluting the groundwater can call for extended and expensive repairs. It also gives the less than reputable company as a gateway to raise fees. We’re transparent about all our pricing and we promise to deliver within the estimated time-line.
10 Signs You Need a Professional Plumbing Company
Doing it yourself when there’s a problem that’s easily fixed is a wise choice, but attempting to repair a complex set of pipes might end up costing you more money than hiring an expert in the first place! Don’t assume you’re an expert after watching YouTube videos! All jokes aside, there are ten red flags that you need an expert.
1. Low Water Pressure
Lots of households encounter low water pressure. The culprit of this common is usually because the pipes are too small or the network is clogged. A technician is trained to identify the source of the problem without destroying the floors and walls.
2. Damaged Walls and Floors
It takes time for water to ruin wood and plaster. The most obvious sign of damage is the presence of water inside the plaster or woodwork. Be careful when touching the damaged area because waterlogged materials often tear and rip.
3. Yellowish, Brown Stains
Burst pipes are every homeowners’ nightmare. Often the ruptured pipes aren’t noticed until they’ve done substantial damage to the walls and floors in your home. If you’ve spotted brown and yellowish stains on the walls, ceilings, and floors then it’s possible a pipe has burst. You’ll need a plumbing company you can rely upon.
4. Zero Hot Water
A lack of hot water may mean there’s a problem with your boiler or heating unit. Regular maintenance can keep this from happening in your home. Our technicians are multi-versed in heating, air conditioning, and plumbing trades to provide our customers with all the repairs their home may need.
5. Weird Noises
Plumbing does make different sounds from time to time. It’ll be easy to tell the difference between the regular noises plumbing makes versus the irregular, knocking faucets and groaning taps. The unusual noises can be due to trapped air in the system. Don’t delay contacting a plumbing company if you’re experiencing noisy plumbing!
6. Smelly Drains
Using the waste disposal often results in materials like food getting trapped and causing foul smells, but if you cannot find the source of the odor, then it’s time to consult a plumbing company right away.
7. No Water
There are lots of causes if the water isn’t flowing. Ring the local water company to make sure there aren’t any scheduled repairs happening in your area. If not, give Metro Plumbing Heating and Air a call immediately to schedule a consultation.
8. Leaking Joints
Plumbing is a complex network of fragile pipes and joints. The water and waste must travel through these pathways to empty into the city’s sewage system. If an item that’s unsuitable for these pathways gets flushed, or if the system is overtaxed then it might cause a pipe to burst or leaking joints. You’ll definitely need a plumbing company with camera-inspection and pipe repair expertise.
9. Lazy Drains
A slow draining bathtub or a washing machine that isn’t emptying completely may indicate there is a blockage in the appliances’ drain. Slow drains are often a sign of bigger plumbing problems.
10. Waste Water in Your Home
Septic tanks are delicate systems. If the sludge has built up quicker than the bacteria can decompose the solid waste then the tank can overfill spilling into your home.
