Signs That Your Sewer Line Is Clogged

Have you ever had raw sewage back up out of your drains? If you haven’t, take our word for it – it’s a real mess! Most homeowners understand that the main sewer line transports waste out of the home, but pay very little attention to it otherwise. Here are a few ways to tell if your main sewer line is on the verge of backing up:

Clogged Toilet or Drain

Have you noticed that a drain or toilet in your home is clogging for what seems to be no reason at all? This is one of the most common red flags indicating that your sewer line may be clogged.

Gurgling
Do you hear gurgling noises each time you do a load of laundry or run the dishwasher? While some gurgling might occur from the water draining (this is normal), if the gurgling is excessive you may have a problem.

Foul Odors
Do you smell sewage when you turn on the water in your bathroom? Oftentimes, clogged sewer lines force foul odors to come back up through your drains so if this is happening in your home, call in an expert right away!
