5 Reasons to Have Your Sewer Line Inspected this Fall

If you have problems with the plumbing in your home, it could be your main sewer line!  Consider having your sewer line inspected this fall so that you don’t have more significant troubles during the busy holiday season.

Clues a Sewer Line Needs Repairs

  1. If you smell sewage in your home or outside of your home, then you may have a broken sewer line. If you have a consistent sewer gas odor from your drains, you should call to have your plumbing inspected.
  2. You may experience clogs in your bathroom and kitchen. If you have several drains that clog regularly, then you should have your main sewer line inspected.  If the clog is just in one area, then it is a secondary line that needs cleaning.
  3. If you have slow drains in your bathroom and kitchen, then you should have your plumbing inspected. A sewer line with a major clog can cause many problems inside your home.  One of these problems is slow draining in your shower, toilets, and sinks.  Tree roots in a sewer line are usually the culprit of chronic slow drains.
  4. If your lawn looks like it is growing better and is greener in a specific area of your yard, you may have a sewer leak.  A broken line can cause plants to grow faster, animals and pests to visit your yard more often, and a wet lawn when it hasn’t rained.
  5. A leaky sewer pipe may cause structural damage to your home. If you notice cracks in your walls or foundation or mold in your home, then you may have a broken sewer line.  Having your plumbing inspected can give you the answers you need!
