When it comes to diagnosing sewer line problems, it can get very tricky for anyone who is not prepared. Sewer lines are buried deep, and finding the problem often requires significant trial and error. Unfortunately, there is no time for trial and error in many cases. This is where sewer odor detection, or smoke testing, comes in handy.
Service Plumbing specializes in this advanced sewer inspection method. We use it to quickly and efficiently diagnose sewer line issues in your home or business. Thus saving residents in Ocala a huge amount of time and money on their sewer repair.
How Does Sewer Odor Detection Work?
Sewer odor detection uses a man-made artificial smoke. This is why some people refer to it as smoke testing. The smoke is pumped into your sewer line and then the technician watches to see where the smoke emerges. In a healthy sewer line, the smoke will pour out at the expected end of the sewer line. However, if your sewer line is ruptured or damaged, you will notice plumes of smoke in an unexpected area since the smoke will always take the easier route back into the open air. At this point, the technician has located the problem and can work on an effective solution.

Can I repipe my home myself?While it is possible to repipe a home yourself, it is not recommended, as it can be a difficult and dangerous process. Repiping a home requires working with water and pipes, which can easily lead to accidents if not done correctly. It is best to leave this job to the professionals.
What should I do if my water pressure is low?If your water pressure is low, you may need to call a plumber to have your water pressure checked. Low water pressure can be caused by a variety of factors, such as a clogged water filter or a leaky faucet. It's important to address low water pressure as soon as possible, as it can lead to water waste and increased energy costs.
How often should I clean my drains?It is recommended that you clean your drains every six months. However, if water is backing up into the tub, sink, or toilet in your home when you flush it, then you need to call a plumber right away to clean the drain. If water backs up into your sink then it's probably coming from your shower and vice versa. Cleaning out the lines will prevent water from backing up into your home.
What is the best way to clear a clogged grease drain?
There are a few effective ways to clear a grease-clogged drain.
- Use boiling water and dish soap to break up grease buildup.
- Pour water mixed with baking soda into the drain, then pour vinegar on top of it to get a chemical reaction that breaks down grease.
- Drain cleaners can also remove water buildup and hard water scale.
- Plumbers recommend using a water-powered mechanical drain cleaner to clear clogs altogether. These machines are easy to use and clear away any type of clog quickly.
For a badly clogged drain, you may need to hire a professional plumber that can clear out the drain with special equipment.
What are the different water heater sizes?
Water heaters come in a variety of sizes, and the size you need depends on how much water your household uses. Here are some general water heater size guidelines:
- If you use less than 40 gallons of water per day, a 40- or 50-gallon water heater will be large enough.
- If you use between 40 and 80 gallons of water per day, a water heater with a capacity of 60 or 80 gallons will probably be required.
- If you use over 80 gallons of water per day, an 85-gallon water heater should provide an adequate supply.
Note that these are general guidelines only; how much water your household actually uses may vary. To be sure you have the right water heater size, consult with a plumbing professional.
