How often do you think about the sewer line that serves your home? You probably never do. Here are some of the simplest reasons why you might need sewer line repair.
Toilet Bowl Water
The first sign you need sewer line repair is when something goes wrong with your toilet. We understand how plenty can happen to cause a toilet to malfunction. Usually, this is caused by simple human errors. If the bowl is overflowing one day, and completely dry the next, then this is a sign of trouble. There’s probably a clog in there causing havoc, meaning you will need sewer line repair.
Let’s say you’ve noticed many more insects coming into your home or squirrels, raccoons, and mice gathering in your yard. If you have a busted sewer line, it could be attracting them. This, in turn, can cause problems for your neighbors and get you into trouble with your HOA or the county.
Another sign something is up is when you detect odd smells. These smells are highly unpleasant. Let’s say that you can smell it in the backyard, in the basement, or anywhere else in your house. If this is the problem, then call a plumber.
The Drain is Slow
A slow drain is frustrating. This is yet another sign that you need a sewer line replacement. In this case, don’t try using chemical drain cleaners. They can end up causing even more problems than they resolve.
Water Bill Going Up
Your water bill shouldn’t be a huge problem for you. Even if you rent a home instead of owning one, the water bill is typically tacked onto your rent and not its own bill. But if your water bill is constantly going up, then you should be worried. It’s a potential sign that you need sewer line repairs to be done as quickly as possible.
