How To Tell if Your Sewer System Is Backing Up

When your sewer system stops draining or starts backing up, it's important to get in touch with a qualified plumbing professional as soon as possible before the problem can escalate out of control. If you identify the early warning signs, you can have professionals take care of the problem before that happens.

Some of the telltale signs that your sewer system is backed up and in need of inspection are:

  • Gurgling sounds from the drain
  • Foul and unpleasant odors and smells from the sinks, drains, and showers
  • Drains are slower to drain than usual
  • Water backing up into the bathtub, sink, or shower

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I prevent a sewer backup?

Preventing a sewer backup requires proactive measures - here are six suggestions:

  • Regular Maintenance. Schedule routine plumbing inspections and drain cleaning to address issues before they get worse.
  • Proper Flushing Habits. Avoid flushing non-flushable items (e.g., flushable wipes, floss, and feminine hygiene products).
  • Backflow Prevention. Install backflow prevention devices to prevent sewage from entering your home during heavy rains.
  • Watch Where You Plant Trees. If you’re planning a landscaping project, be careful where you plant trees. Tree roots near your sewer line will likely find their way into the line for nutrients.
  • Mindful Disposal. Be cautious about what goes down your drains, avoiding excessive food scraps, oils, and other debris.
  • Sewer Line Inspection. Is your sewer line aging or prone to issues? Consider a professional sewer line inspection and cleaning to detect problems and remove buildup.

By taking these preventive steps, you can reduce the risk of sewer backups.
