In today’s post, we’ll outline some of the warning signs you’ll see if you’re having problems with your main sewer line.
Sewer Line Issues To Keep Your Eyes Peeled For
If you’re concerned about the possibility of having problems with your sewer line, here are some of the main things to look for:
Constant, Consistent Drain Back Up
While liquid drain cleaner can provide a temporary fix for minor drainage issues, repeatedly using drain cleaner every time you have a back up, especially if you’re having them frequently, is a far cry from a long-term solution.
If your drain is constantly draining slow, or is often clogged, it could be a blockage or a break in your sewer pipe, perhaps even in the lowest parts of your home. In those cases, liquid drain cleaner simply isn’t the answer.
Problems With Multiple Fixtures
One of the clearest indicators that you have a problem with a main sewer line, rather than just an individual pipe is that you have more than one fixture backing up at a time.
Whether it’s your kitchen sink and shower, or your bathroom sink and toilet, multiple backups are an almost sure sign of deeper issues below.
You Can Even See It In Your Yard
Sewer lines don’t only affect fixtures inside your home. At times, you’ll even be able to see the effects of a sewer line backup in your yard.
Here are some things to keep on the lookout for:
- Indentations in your lawn
- Soggy patches of grass, especially when it hasn’t rained
Interestingly enough, you can also look for extremely fertile patches of grass. Sewage can act as a fertilizer, so sewage leaks could lead to extra lush and green grass in certain spots.
