4 Tell-Tale Signs You Need a Sewer Line Repair

A sewer line repair can be tricky, so it is crucial to immediately call for a professional plumber.

Your home’s sewer line system is one of the most essential systems in your home and a necessary component for your day-to-day life. It is one of the most important functions of your home’s plumbing systems. When you experience a broken or blocked sewer line, you face a severe plumbing emergency that requires immediate attention and action. A sewer line repair can be a task, so it is crucial to immediately call for a professional plumber instead of trying to fix it all up on your own. To avoid a future sewer line repair in the future, be sure to keep your sewer line checked up regularly. Here are four tell-tale signs that its time for sewer line repair.

Sewage Blockages & Backups

If you’ve noticed any clogs of water backflow, it’s a sure sign that you’ve got some sewer or drain problem. If you see water backing up after your flush your toilet, use the sink, or use the bathtub – this is a sign you may need a sewer line repair. If you’re experiencing consistent backups and your attempts to clear the line do not succeed, make sure you contact a professional for a sewer line inspection.

Stinky Stench

A clean sewer should be airtight and enclosed everywhere except for the vent stacks. Sewer odors surrounding your property is a huge sign that there is a clog or crack somewhere in your sewer line.

Slow Drain

A slow drain might be a sign that a blockage is starting to form, which will inevitably lead to a clog and sewage backup. If your toilet, bathtub or sink is draining slower than usual, try solving the issue in its early stage. If you start to experience slow drainage with all the drains around your property, its likely that you’ll need a sewer line repair to fix the issue.

Soggy Lawn Spots

This sign is a weird one, but one nonetheless. If you detect leaks in your property’s sewer line, you might notice wet, damp, or raised patches of grass around your yard. This typically means that there is an abundance of water underneath the surface of your lawn – a significant indicator that you need a sewer line repair.
