Hurricane Irma’s Possible Plumbing Effects On Your Home

September was a scary month for all of us in Florida. If we weren’t in the direct path of Hurricane Irma, we at least knew a few friends and family members who were. Floridians are still cleaning up and seeing the effects that Irma caused.

During hurricane season your septic system can take a beating too. It’s always a good idea to have your system inspected after a flood. With the flooding that occurred you need to ensure that your system was not damaged by standing water or even objects that may have fallen or been lodged into your pipes. Electrical components may have been compromised, so it’s important to have it checked for optimal functioning.

Your drain field may have been compromised during Irma as well. If you had a car parked or anything over your drain field it could have caused damage to your drain field pipes.

There are some common signs that your drain fields may have been compromised during Irma:

  • Gurgling sounds coming from your drains
  • Slow draining drains
  • Wet spots in your yard
  • Odor in the area of your drain field
