How to Tell If Your Sewer Line Is in Trouble

sunny-plumberYou use a lot of your plumbing system each and every day. Your shower, your kitchen sink, etc.  You also use parts of your plumbing system that you don’t directly interact with each and every day. You know—like your sewer line! That’s why any problems with your sewer line in Tucson are so serious. Do you know how to recognize potential signs of trouble with your sewer line early on?

That’s the focus of today’s post, and our Sunny Plumbers are always happy to help. We’ll cover signs of sewer line problems, and we’ll share some tips on how you can best avoid them. You are going to have drainage issues at some point, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do your best to limit them as much as possible.

Your Drains Are Moving Slowly

From time to time, you may notice that a single drain in your home is moving slowly. This is one of the most common problems that homeowners encounter. Issues like grease build-up in the kitchen drain and too much hair getting down the bathroom sink drain could be to blame. Professional drain cleaning services can resolve such problems effectively.

However, if the problem is not localized in this way, then you could definitely have a sewer line clog on your hands. All of the drains, as well as your toilet, lead to your sewer line. If that sewer line is blocked, then every drain in your home will be affected. We can diagnose the problem accurately and scour your sewer line to resolve the problem.

Your Property Is … Fragrant

We probably don’t need to get too detailed on this one. You know what sort of waste is disposed of through your sewer line, right? Well, if your sewer line develops even a “minor” leak—as if there is such a thing—you are going to have some odor to alert you to the problem. Unpleasant, we know, but this is the reality of the situation.

So, if you ever notice an odor like this around your property, even if your plumbing system seems to be operating just fine, let us know right away. It’s an unhygienic situation, and it’s not something you’ll want to just learn to deal with. Don’t put your property or your health at risk.

Your Yard Is Squishy (and Well-Fertilized)

Curious about why your yard feels a little softer than usual? Notice odd patches of grass that are lusher than others? Greener? Healthier looking? It could be a sewer line leak!

A leaking sewer line can actually wind up fertilizing your lawn, leading to patches of grass in the vicinity of the sewer line looking healthier than in other areas. It may seem like a benefit, but it is anything but. It’s a sign of trouble, and trouble that you need resolved as quickly as possible. When it comes to sewer line leaks, prompt action is always your best course of action!
