Your household plumbing is dependent on your sewer line. It can lead to unwelcome problems for your property if it becomes blocked or damaged. Repairing or replacing damaged pipes can be expensive. Over time, the damage tends to worsen. These signs indicate that your sewer line could be blocked.
Slow Draining Bathtubs and Sinks
If there is a problem with your sewer lines, your toilets and bathtubs could drain slowly or not at all. A blocked drainpipe could also be an indication.
A gurgling sound that you hear when you flush could be an indication of a blocked main sewer line. Roots can cause problems if you have a large tree near your sewer line. Roots can also get through pipe joints and into pipes.
Tiny feeder roots search for moisture from the inside. Once inside, they will grow larger and serve as a net to collect waste and toilet paper till it gets clogged.
Constant Need To Plunge
There might be more toilet clogs than usual. You might notice a greater number of toilet clogs than you did before. This could indicate that there are more than one slow drain in your house or multiple slow drains. This indicates that your sewer is blocked.
Get Some Help
A plunger or an over-the-counter chemical is the only way to clear a clogged sewer. Professional cleaning is required to remove roots and debris from the sewer line. A stiff steel cable with a sharp tip is used for sewer and drain cleaning. The cable moves through the sewer pipe and can remove any obstructions.
