While it is important to be aware of the condition of all of the plumbing in your home, it is particularly important that you know the condition of your main sewer line. The main sewer line collects the waste from all of the drains and toilets in your home, and then deposits it into the municipal sewer. Thusly, should this pipe become damaged, you will want to have it taken care of as soon as possible before it causes bigger problems in your home. Here are a few signs to look out for indicating that your sewer line may need a Brooklyn sewer repair.
Clogging Drains in Your Home
Occasional clogs in a single drain in your home is not unusual, and generally indicates a block within that individual line. These simple clogs can be caused by soap scum, hair, or grease accumulation. However, if you experience constant clogging in the drains throughout your home, or you notice that your drains have begun to drain slower, then this likely points to a problem with your main sewer line. In this case, it is likely that a blockage in, or damage to, your sewer line is causing this problem and will need repair.
Unusual Sounds Coming From Your Drains and Toilets
Another sign of trouble with your sewer line is strange noises coming from your toilets and drains. Gurgling, bubbling, and other odd sounds are not normal for a drain system. If they begin making a gurgling sound when draining, this can be a sign that the sewer line is beginning to back up. This is likely due to a blockage, and will need professional cleaning, or a possible sewer repair, as soon as possible.
An Unpleasant Odor in Your Yard
You can also look for certain signs outside of your home that can indicate problems with your sewer line, the most obvious being strong sewer smells coming from your yard. Another sign can be the pooling of foul water. Your main sewer line runs from under your home and either through your front or back yard to the municipal line. Therefore being able to smell sewage in your yard indicates a leak in your underground sewer line.
