How to Tell if Your Sewer Line Needs Service

If we were to ask you how much time you spend thinking about your sewer line on an average day, well—we’d hope you say something along the lines of, “What are you talking about?”

Chances are that you give your sewer line very little thought, and we’re not really here to tell you that this is wrong. We are here to tell you, however, that you at least need to understand what the warning signs are that your sewer line is in need of service.

Trust us when we say that it’s best not to be totally caught off-guard by a sewer line in distress. The nature of your sewer line’s function means that any problems with it can devolve into not just a very inconvenient but also an extremely unhygienic situation quite quickly.

By scheduling sewer repair and maintenance at the very first sign of trouble, you ensure that you’re minimizing any such risks for you and your family.

Problems Flushing Your Toilet

Have you noticed that it takes a few flushes to get everything down the toilet, recently? Do you realize that this is absolutely not indicative of a drain and sewer system that is functioning properly?

You shouldn’t have to flush multiple times to get the job done, and the fact that it all goes down eventually does not mean that everything is more or less okay. It means that things are likely coming to a head.

Does every toilet backup mean that you have a problem with your sewer line? No, not necessarily. You may have someone in your family that is just clogging the toilet with too much paper. You may have a shallow clog that can be resolved with a plunger.

If it is an ongoing issue, though, then there is definitely a chance that you’ve got an issue deeper in your system that is going to require professional intervention.

Sewer Odors

We don’t have to define sewer odors, do we? Suffice to say, they’re just not all that pleasant. And chances are that you won’t be willing to ignore them in your home or on your property. Just keep in mind that it may not be quite as severe as you’d expect. At least not at first.

You may notice that you have smelly drains, for instance. That may just mean that you need to have your drains cleaned. However, it could also mean that there is a sewer line problem causing these odors to travel back up through the drainage system. Whatever the case, it’s definitely an issue that you want to resolve ASAP.

Signs of Leaks

If your lawn is squishy in the area of where your sewer line is buried, then you’re going to want to contact us immediately. This suggests that there is a leak in your sewer line, and that is really going to give you a headache if left unaddressed. Do not wait any longer than is absolutely necessary to reach out to a member of our team if you have any such concerns.

Rudy and Chris were very helpful, professional and courteous. My only issue was with the scheduling. Our window was 9a-11a. We received text at 8:30a stating technician was enroute so I rushed to property. Tech arrived almost 11:30 after we were given new window of 11-1. This should be no reflection on Rudy and Chris.
