3 Signs You Could Have A Clog In Your Sewer

A clog in your sewer line can lead to a wide range of problems and expenses. Leaky pipes, broken fixtures and water damage to your home or business are all expenses that can occur. It is important to investigate a potential problem at the first sign of trouble.

What signs should you look for?

  • One of the first signs that you could have roots in your sewer line comes out of the bathroom. Yes, the bathroom. If you suddenly notice that water is backing up out of the toilet or a drain, you could have a clogged sewer line. 
  • Believe it or not, your home will attempt to tell you when something is wrong. Except the language it uses will be more in the way of gurgles. For example, after you hear a wash cycle finish, listen to other water sources in your home such as a sink or drain. If you hear what sounds like a gargling of some sort, odds are you have a drain issue.
  • If you begin to notice tree roots near your house, you may want to be extra cautious and have your drains inspected by a professional regularly. It is always best if you can stop a problem before it starts. 
 If you find yourself experiencing any of these signs, it is important to contact a licensed plumber right away. They will be able to correctly diagnose your problem with either a camera or other device and determine if a chemical or manual removal is necessary.
