Main Sewer Line – Warning signs of a blockage

Your sewer line is the lifeline of your household plumbing and if it becomes clogged or damaged, a quick response is important.

Here are a few warning signs that it’s your sewer line that might be blocked.

Sink and Bathtubs Draining Slow

When there is a problem with the main sewer line, you will more than likely notice multiple fixtures like your sinks, toilets and bathtubs draining slowly or backing up. For example, if you are running your washing machine and your toilet overflows, that is a sign that there is a blockage somewhere in your drainpipes. Another sure sign is hearing gurgling sounds when you flush your toilet.

Reoccurring Need to Plunge

If you are experiencing more toilet clogs than you used to or if your kitchen sink is draining slower, that could be a sign that there may be a clog problem farther downstream in your drainage system.

If you are having problems with more than one drain, it is the greatest indicator that there is a problem with your sewer line.

Call a Professional

A sewer clog can not be treated with a plunger or over the counter chemicals. A professional is needed to clear the sewer line of roots and debris.
