Does Your Sewer Line Need to be Repaired?

When a sewer line breaks, you may not be certain at first. Soon, though, you will notice things are not functioning properly. There will be signs that there is a problem. There are things to look for if you suspect your sewer line has an issue.

  • Drain odors: If you’ve started to notice unpleasant smells rising from your drains it could mean sewage water is being forced upward.
  • Frequent clogs: Clogs happen at times, but when they seem to be more stubborn than usual, this could be another sign.
  • Foul-smelling yard:  When the sewer line is disrupted by a break, the sewage will seep into your lawn.
  • Vermin are present: Rats and other pests may be attracted to the waste.

Several factors can cause a sewer line to become damaged. To run smoothly and efficiently, lines should be kept clean from grease, debris, roots, and other things which could affect the system. Here is a checklist you can use to keep your lines clear.

  1. Clean the lines regularly with an enzyme cleaner.
  2. Try a baking soda and vinegar mixture for a natural method to clear away pipe gunk.
  3. Flush the lines by running water through them with a small amount of drain cleaner.
  4. Use a snake to remove minor clogs.
  5. Call a professional if needed.
