Q

Why do I have low water pressure?
​You might have lead or galvanized water lines. A new copper water line will increase the volume into the home. If you have outdated pipes in your home the restriction of flow could be effected. There is a possibility that a break has occurred under ground and has not surfaced. Usually you can hear a hissing noise by the meter when a break has occurred on your line.


Why is water coming up my floor drain?

Your main line could be broke or plugged. The first thing you should do is have it sewer cleaned. If the main line cannot be unplugged the next thing to do is have the sewer line video-inspected.


Why do I have holes in my yard?

There is a possibility that rats are escaping out through a broken piece of pipe and you might not be experiencing any sewer restriction flow. The next thing to do is have the sewer line video-inspected. 


Why do I have a restriction of flow on my water service when it has already been updated?

There is a possibility that corrosion has formed on your tap inside the main. 

Where are the most common spots that a sewer will break?

The possibilities might be, at the foundation where the house might shift or in the yard through the septic area where it has settled, or at the curb were the contractor has tied into the city stub or at the city main. 


What if a tractor cannot get into my yard to do the work?

Cichy's Water & Sewer will hand dig if a small machine is not accessible.
