Getting your plumbing ready in the fall for colder weather is vital so that you don’t have to deal with plumbing problems when it is less convenient. Signs you need to have your sewer line inspected are easy to spot if you’ve already experienced sewer line problems in the past. If you haven’t ever had trouble with a sewer line in your home, there are usually a few clues that you need to have your main sewer line checked.
- Your sewer line may have a break or crack in it. This crack will allow sewage to run into to the soil, which helps plants grow because of the extra nutrients. If you see your grass and plants thriving in one area in your yard, then you probably have a sewer line leaking.
- The smell of sewage is the most straightforward sign that you have a problem with your plumbing. If you smell sewage indoors or outdoors, call us right away for repair services.
- You may have a slow drain in your shower or sinks. A slow drain is a good indication that you have a problem with clogged pipes. If there is a slow drain in more than one area of your home, then it is probably a problem with the main sewer line.
- If you notice your toilet’s water level changing, for no reason, then you probably have a clog or crack in your sewer line.
