Is My Main Sewer Line Clogged?
Posted on July 25th, 2019 by Dean's Plumbing
Is your sewer line clogged? Few things can be as frustrating as a clogged sewer line, but a broken sewer pipe is one of those things. It’s easy to tell your main sewer line is broken or clogged up. The biggest threat of a broken sewer line is the interruption of your daily routine and the fact that wastewater from your drains will start to back up into your house. This can be water that comes from the sink, or, even worse, it could be water that’s come from your toilet.
Where The Backup Shows Up
If your main sewer line is clogged, the water will tend to start backing up at the lowest possible drain. This could be a floor drain in your basement, or it could be a sink drain. Your toilet might start bubbling. All of these situations are signs that you have a clogged or broken sewer pipe, and they are also signs that you need to call a plumber to help you with the situation.
You might wonder what causes a clogged or broken sewer line. Here are a few likely culprits:
- Roots from trees or shrubbery looking for water can bust through your pipes.
- Feminine hygiene products or excessive amounts of toilet paper can cause a small snag and start to accumulate and turn into a larger problem.
