3 Signs That Your Sewage Line May Be In Trouble


As a homeowner, you will want to make sure that you are well aware of all of the signs that indicate a problem with your sewage line. To help you with this, you will want to make sure that you are taking a few moments to review the following information.

You Smell Rotten Eggs In Your Drains

Do you smell something coming from your drains that smells like rotten eggs? If so, it could be that you are dealing with some sewage line trouble. To help you determine whether this is an actual problem with the main sewage line or if the problem is with a single drain, you will want to determine whether all of the drains smell or if it is just one of them. If all of the drains smell bad, it is probably trouble with them main line. If you only have one drain that is smelling rather bad, then it is most likely, a problem between that drain and where it connects to the main line. It could be a terrible clog that is starting to grow mold. This is usually something that you can resolve on your own. However, if the trouble seems to be in the main line, it could be a crack or huge clog that will require a sewage line repair specialist to resolve the problem. 

The Yard Is Extra Soggy In Spots

Have you recently noticed that there is one or more sections of your yard that are extra soggy? If so, then there may very well be a problem with your main sewage line, especially if the soggy spot is directly above where the sewage line runs. If there is a crack or a complete break in your sewage line, all of that septic waste is pouring into your soil and saturating it. This is not only going to start to cause a smell, but it is a problem that is actually toxic to humans and pets.

You Hear Gurgling Sounds In The Drains

You should not hear a lot of gurgling sounds when you send water down the drains. If you do, it could be a sign that there is a clog that is stopping the water from freely flowing through the line and into the main sewage line out on the street. If the gurgling sound only comes from one drain, then the problem is with that particular drain and not the main line. However, if you hear an excessive amount of gurgling sounds coming from all of your lines, then you will want to have a sewage line technician check out the main line because you have sewage backing up into your home.

With those three signs of trouble in mind, you should have no trouble determining whether you need professional sewer and drain cleaning assistance.
