Watch for these warning signs for when your sewer line needs repair

“Here are some common signs your sewer line needs repair that you’ll want to know to protect your house and yard.

Sewage Backups
Sewage backup applies to consistent plumbing issues where sewage backs up every time you flush. While backups or blockages happen, consistent blockages are a strong indicator of issues with your sewer line.

Slow Drains
Similarly, slow drains are not inherently a cause for alarm. Usually, a plunger or spider tool can unclog the problematic drain. However, if unclogging techniques fail, you may need to call a professional sewer line service to remedy the situation.

Odorous Water
If your water smells odorous, that’s a clear sign something is wrong with your water main. Intact sewer lines are airtight, meaning no odor escapes. Sulfuric smells, like rotten eggs, indicate a breakage in that line. If you smell sulfur or other toxic fumes, call a plumber right away”

Perhaps the most obvious sign is sewage waste pooling in your yard. If you happen to see this you need to take action quickly.
