Your home’s sewer system comprises one main sewer line with several connections of pipes emanating from the toilets, sinks, showers, and other water sources.
The sewer line’s function is to transport waste from within your home to the central sewer system, often located in your yard, but it is often out of sight.
The waste is then moved to the water treatment plant in your locality.
Here’s the bad news, since your sewer line connects all your plumbing systems, something that may seem minor such as a clog, can lead to messy and expensive problems if not addressed soon enough.
A clogged sewer line can be caused by several issues, such as broken pipes and roots growing into your sewer line. Flushing unexpected products such as toys and diapers down your toilet, grease, and oils poured down the sink, and sometimes extreme temperature changes are also common causes.
Since the sewer line is located underground and out of sight, you may not realize if there’s a problem if you don’t see the signs.
So, here are some few signs to watch out for:
- Slow drains
- Water and sewage backing up in your sink, tub, toilet, or on the drains on the floor
- Sewage smell coming from your sink and other drains
- Water with a foul smell flooding your yard
For a preventive measure, always keep an eye for any problems with your plumbing system, hire a professional to help in sewer locating, and check the sewer line at least every two years to catch problems early enough.
