3 Warning Signs You Have a Sewer Line Problem

3 Warning Signs You Have a Sewer Line Problem

Sewage systems carry waste away from the home and property, keeping us safe. Read on for some early signs that you might have a sewer line problem.

Your home uses a broad range of plumbing systems to keep your family healthy and comfortable. One of the most important systems is the sewer system. Your sewage system removes waste from the home, carries it away from your property, and ensures that you do not come into contact with hazardous waste. However, a sewer line problem can place you at risk. What are some of the early signs that you might have a sewer issue that requires help from Master Plumbing?

You Hear Gurgling Noises

When you flush your toilet, what sounds do you hear? One of the most common warning signs of a sewer line problem is a strange gurgling sound as you flush your toilet or coming from your toilet when you run another appliance that uses water, like the dishwasher or washing machine. Always be vigilant for signs like this.

You Noticed an Increase in Your Water Bill

Sudden jumps in any utility bill in your home should be a cause for concern, and the same is true when it comes to your water bill. One potential sign of a sewer line problem is a sudden increase in your water bill. If you have not made any changes to your usage and the water company has not changed its rates, it might be a sign that something is not working the way that it should be. We can visit your property to troubleshoot the problem.

You Have Unexplained Clogs

Over the course of your time in any home, it’s normal to have at least a clog or two. Whether it is the sink draining slowly or the shower getting clogged, there is not necessarily anything wrong with what you are doing. Instead, it might just be the result of natural wear and tear on your plumbing system. However, if you are noticing frequent, unexplainable issues with clogs in your pipes, you might have a sewer line problem instead. Every drain in your house is connected to your sewer system, which means that a problem with the sewer system can impact everything else.
