Common Issues with Outdoor Plumbing Systems

It is very important to keep a close eye on the health of your outdoor plumbing system. Any signs of water that is running very slowly down the drains, or strange smells coming up from the pipes, could indicate something is off. 

You may even notice brilliant green patches around your yard or lawn, indicating that sewage is leaking. But what causes these issues in the first place? There are many reasons why your outdoor plumbing could be having troubles, some of which are unavoidable and others that are preventable.

Some of the events which may cause your external plumbing to experience trouble include:

  • A disturbance from construction has caused the pipe to sink further into the ground and become bellied
  • Roots have become so tangled with the pipeline that even a cable machine is unable to clear them 
  • There is a leak in your sprinkler system because the valves have worn down
  • Your irrigation system has frozen throughout the winter

Types of Outdoor Plumbing Systems 

Outdoor plumbing systems are essential for a variety of outdoor infrastructure and landscaping tasks. They are responsible for supplying outdoor areas with necessary water, providing drainage when necessary and also in some cases supplying outdoor areas with a gas supply. 

Depending on the outdoor space being serviced, different types of outdoor plumbing systems may be required such as ones related specifically to water supply or irrigation, those related to sewer systems or drainage and those supplying outdoor areas with a gas supply. 

Each type of system used must be carefully designed in order to ensure that all of the outdoor plumbing remains effectively functioning over time. Not having properly functioning outdoor plumbing can cause many issues for any outdoor area so it is important to make sure the right kind is used depending on the needs of the area.

Signs You Need Sprinkler System Repair

If you've been noticing uneven water coverage, low water pressure, sputtering heads, or even dripping valves in your lawn's sprinkler system, it might be time to look into repairs. Especially if your water bill has been unusually high or the system appears to be working less than when it was first installed. 

In most cases of sprinkler system repair, there will be several signs that point to something gone wrong with your system. Obvious signs include fountains of water heaving up from below the ground which can cause lots of over-watering and waste. 

Other signs to watch out for may also arise such as uneven water coverage or low pressure throughout; this is typically indicative of a clogged head or pipe that needs cleaning. Lastly, drips coming from valves could mean an issue with one of the manifolds needing new parts.

How to Prepare Your Irrigation System for Winter

Anyone who has lived or worked in Illinois for even a short time knows that the winters can be extremely frigid. Because your outdoor pipes are exposed to such cold temperatures, they are liable to freeze. 

This can cause several problems, in addition to just inconveniently forcing the water pressure levels to drop dramatically whenever you use the sink or take a shower. In worst-case scenarios, a frozen pipe can suffer a hairline crack or even a larger break, which will result in a lot of wasted water and extensive damage to your valuables.

If your pipes are accessible, it is possible to insulate them from the cold. However, your outdoor irrigation system is usually difficult to reach if it is buried deep beneath the ground. Moreover, you will likely not be using the sprinkler system during the winter anyway. 

If this is the case, you might want to discuss the option of draining your pipes before winter hits. By having licensed plumbers in Lockport clear out your external plumbing, you can prevent the lines from freezing on account of the water trapped inside them. Just let our team at Trailblazer Plumbing Services know, so we can help you prepare before the blizzards blow.
