3 Signs You Need Sewer Line Repair

Posted on

Having issues with your sewer line can be frustrating. Your sewer line is one of those things that you need to have working correctly in order for your home to be comfortable. While it can be challenging when you have to deal with this problem, fortunately, plumbers are used to dealing with it all the time. Once you notice the signs that will be discussed here, it's time to call them in to have your sewer line repaired as soon as possible.

Slow Drainage 

One of the things that almost always happens when there is a problem with your sewer line is that you will experience slow drainage. You may notice that your bathtub is not draining as fast as it used to, or that the sink in your kitchen is taking longer than it usually would drain water. 

All these are signs that there is something wrong with your sewer line. If you try drain cleaning products and they are not working, it is usually a sign that you need professional help. A plumber will come in and check your sewer line for you and fix any issues with your drainage system. 

Toilet Problems

One of the signs that your sewer line needs repair is when your toilet bowl is filled with water one day and the next day you notice that the water in the bowl is very low. 

This fluctuating situation is usually indicative that there is some kind of clog developing in your sewer line. If it is not repaired, you can expect your toilet bowl to start showing signs of a backup very soon. Having to deal with your toilet backing up is never pleasant, so once you noticed the fluctuating water call in a plumber. 

A Smelly Yard

Another sign that your sewer line is backing up is when you notice that there is a foul odor in your yard. This is one of the signs that are very obvious. Once you start noticing that foul smell, it is best to call in the plumbers as soon as possible. The smell will only get worse if your sewer line is not repaired promptly.

A broken sewer line is never fun to deal with, so it is good to be able to spot all the signs that something is wrong as soon as possible. This is because the sooner you acknowledge the problem, the sooner you can get it repaired before extensive damage is done to your sewer line.
