Is Something Wrong with Your Sewer Line?

Watch out for these sewer line problems!

Plumbing problems can pop up at any time, and you might never know when those problems are caused by your sewer line. If you think something might be wrong, then here’s how you can tell for sure.

Frequent Issues

Sewer line problems can be a real headache, especially if you’ll dealing with them on a constant basis. Here are some frequent issues that you probably already know all too well:

  1. Leaks due to corroding pipes
  2. Tree and plant root invasion
  3. Worn down valves allowing leaks
  4. Items being flushed down the toilet or sent down the sink that shouldn’t be

If these problems aren’t the cause or the symptoms of something wrong, then it could be something else entirely.

Weird Sounds

Ghost flushing is one problem that might startle you when it’s late at night and you’re trying your best to go to sleep. But that isn’t the only weird sound you might hear if your home has sewer line problems. If you are running the dishwasher or the washing machine, and you hear strange sounds coming from your pipes and plumbing, then it might be a sign that something has gone seriously wrong.

Toilets Backing Up

You don’t want to come home to find your toilet clogged. But the problem isn’t a clog caused by some mischief in your home, maybe it’s just that your neighborhood’s sewage line has backed up unexpectedly, releasing a horrid amount of odor and refuse into your bathroom. The water is supposed to be treated, but sometimes you might run into unexpected problems.
