How Do I Know If I Have a Septic Backup?

A clogged pipe or backed-up sewer line means that waste can’t flow from the home to the sewer system. When that happens, you’ll start to notice changes in your home’s plumbing and some unmistakable symptoms that you need to call for service. Common signs of sewer system clogs include:

  • Water backing up from toilets, showers, and sinks
  • Backups that affect multiple drains
  • Strong odors of sewage on your property or very green grass in the yard around the sewer line
  • Any drain or pipe blockages that involve your toilet
  • Audible gurgling sounds from the toilet drain
  • Any water pooling around drains in the basement floor

Beware of Tree Root Intrusion in Sewer Lines

As we educate customers on properly caring for their home's plumbing system and preventing problems before they happen, we always discuss the potential harm tree roots can cause with underground lines. It would make sense for tree roots to avoid underground concrete pipes, but they're attracted to damaged lines that leak water. Roots need water to grow and will find moisture anywhere they can. The tiniest hole in a sewer line is enough to attract tree roots which eventually penetrate the pipe’s wall and grow through it, causing a blockage. Our powerful drain cleaning services are strong enough to bust through any tree roots.

How to Prevent Residential Sewer System Backups

Your sewer backup prevention system cost will be less than extensive repairs to the sewer lines. You can take the following steps to maintain healthy pipes and drains and significantly reduce the need for emergency help.

  • Avoid planting trees in areas where they could interfere with sewer lines

  • Invest in our team's periodic pipe-cleaning maintenance
