How to Tell if Your Sewer Lines are Clogged
If there is a clog in your sewer line, here are some signs there may be a problem and you need a professional plumber:
Multiple drains are backed up: The toilet, bathtub, shower, and other bathroom fixtures back up all at once, possibly along with your kitchen sink. Water may also back up in the shower when the toilet flushes.
Drains are slow: If water is draining slower than normal, there may be a blockage that will only get worse if not taken care of soon.
Drains are smelly: If a foul sewage odor is coming from your drains, or water is backing up, a main sewer clog may be present.
Sewage is standing in/draining out of the sewer cleanout: A main sewer blockage will do this; the pipe connects to the main line and allows plumbers direct access to the sewer line.
Sewage collects in the floor drain: With nowhere to go, water from the pipe will enter the secondary drain and collect around floor drains in your home.
Common Causes of Blockage
- Grease, oil, fats, and even detergent or soap residue poured down a drain, which can build up and clog up the line. Pour hot grease into a container and discard it when it solidifies, rather than wash it down with hot water.
- Shampoo that goes down the shower drain; similar to grease and other substances, it can collect in pipes and block the sewer line. Hair buildup can act in the same way, causing the symptoms of a sewer line blockage.
- Flushing items down the toilet that shouldn’t be, including facial tissues, disinfectant wipes, swiffers, paper towels, hair, tampons, plastic, or diapers. Throw these in a trashcan instead, so they don’t block sewer pipes.
