The quicker a sewer line blockage is detected, the better and cheaper it is for you. A sewer backup is one of those issues that never seems to matter until something happens. A clogged sewer line that is not immediately addressed can lead to extensive, costly repairs.
On top of putting a hurt on your wallet, a backed-up sewer can also lead to exposure to contaminated water. To keep everyone in your home protected, keep an eye out for these three warning signs from our experts at Joseph’s Affordable Plumbing that there may be a clogged sewer line.
More Than One Clogged Drain
The biggest warning sign that there is a clog in the main drain is that you have more than one bad drain. If the master bedroom shower and main floor powder room toilet are both experiencing bubbling, the water level rise or giving off a bad smell, there is a solid chance your main line could be clogged. If the problems seem to only arise in one area of the house, you have a clog in that specific rooms line.
One Thing Affects Another
When you hop in the shower and the water level of the toilet rises, you may certainly have a clog somewhere in the line. The same goes for any other appliance in the house that requires water. If when you run the washer machine and a nearby sink starts to overflow, you definitely have a problem with your sewer.
