Oof! Trouble With Your Main Sewer Line?

Ick! Trouble with your main sewer line, as you might imagine can be rather, well, gross! Of course, then, when something does go wrong, you are going to want to call in a professional plumber right away! Otherwise, you’ll be dealing with a whole slew of other issues!

But how do you know when something is wrong with your main sewer line?

Well, keep reading below and we’ll tell you! We have listed some tell-tale signs of sewer line trouble… that way, you’ll know precisely when to call our team. 

Be on the Lookout For…

There are a number of signs that indicate trouble with your main sewer line. These include:

Puddles in Your Yard

Any leak that occurs underground can cause puddling in your yard. If your yard is particularly soggy, it is in your best interest to contact a professional plumber right away. Chances are if your yard is soggy, the problem has been going on for quite a while.

Excess Greenery

Maybe it’s just that you have a green thumb or you treat your lawn with expensive fertilizer. Or maybe, you are dealing with a leaky main sewer line. It may sound a little gross, but a leaky main sewer line is going to act as a fertilizer for your lawn. Yes, you might now have the most beautiful lawn in the neighborhood, but a broken sewer line is definitely not something you’d want to show off.

Slow Drains

A clog in your plumbing system will result in slow drains. If there is a blockage in your main sewer line, though, you will notice that multiple drains around your home are having trouble draining. Therefore, it is important to contact a pro right away.

Mold and Mildew

The excess moisture due to a plumbing leak provides the perfect environment for mold and mildew to grow. As you may know, mold can be a health hazard if not dealt with right away, so you want to be sure to hire a professional plumber to address the root of the issue.

Running Water

The last thing you would expect to hear if all your faucets are turned off is the sound of running water. If you continue to hear the sound of water even after you’ve double-checked all your faucets, you likely have a leak on your hands. Be safe, and call a plumber ASAP!

Foul Odors

As you might imagine, a leak in the main sewer line can get pretty smelly. Trust your nose, and contact a professional right away if you notice any foul odors coming from any of the drains around your home.
