Today, we at Simon Plumbing would like to share the warning signs that your sewer line and drains are clogged and should be cleaned by our experts.
Multiple Drains Back Up
When you discover multiple drains in the home start to back up, this is usually one of the first signs that something is wrong. To take the wastewater away from the house, all the small drain lines in your house eventually connect to your sewer main. The small offshoots that lead to each individual drain will be similarly clogged if there is something wrong with the big pipe that flushes it all away.
Floor Drains in House Experience Sewage Backup
The first drains most likely to backup would be the ones on the bottom floor as your sewer main is underground. A probable first sign that something is wrong with the main line is when you have a floor drain in the basement laundry room, for example, that starts to back up for no good reason.
Sink Backs Up when Toilet is Flushed etc
Another indication that something is amiss, is when you turn on the bathroom sink and the toilet gurgles, or you flush your toilet and water comes up through the floor drain in your shower. Before circumstances get worse, you should call in a plumber for a sewer line and drain cleaning service immediately.
Standing Water or Sewage Coming Out of Cleanout Pipe
Generally located just outside the house, the sewer main underground, which is accessible to plumbers to perform a sewer cleanout, commonly connects with the sewer main that brings waste to the municipal sewer. A red flag of a backup is occurring in the sewer main is when sewage is backup up in this vertical pipe.
