When it comes to your sewer lines, problems can usually be spotted pretty easily. The tricky part is knowing which problems to look out for. That’s where we come in! After reading this blog post, we hope that if or when you spot these issues, you’ll know to call the best team around. With that said, here are a few telltale signs that you may need a sewer line inspection.
Does your sink start to overflow or does your shower turn into a bath before you know it? Slowly draining water is one of the most common and noticeable symptoms of a sewer line problem. We strongly suggest you don’t use over-the-counter drain cleaning products, as convenient as they might be. Chemical drain cleaners can actually do more harm than good to your pipes, so it’s best to have a drain cleaning specialist inspect your sewer lines and clear your pipes.
Sewage Coming Up The Drain
A sewage backup is a likely culprit for a clogged drain. When a clog obstructs waterflow in your pipes, there’s no way for the water to leave your plumbing system. The water trying to drain can actually force sewage up your pipes. All that standing water in your pipes and sewer system is a recipe for disaster, and if the problem is neglected for long enough, the water will be forced into other systems of your house. This could lead to a complete draining failure throughout your entire house, which will be quite expensive to repair. The best way to avoid sewage backups is to investigate your sewer lines before it’s too late.
Notice any wet, sunk-in spots on your front lawn or backyard? That is another sign of a sewage backup, and it’s one of the most severe signs. That means so much sewage has backed up that the water from your plumbing system has seeped out into your yard. Gross! If it gets to this point, you need to call a sewage specialist ASAP to avoid stinking up the entire neighborhood! A soggy lawn is a sign of a major issue with your plumbing system, so please do not wait any longer to address it.
