How to Know if Your Main Sewer Line is Clogged

Evidence of Sewer Line Clog

Generally speaking, you’ll know pretty quickly that there is an issue if the main sewer line is clogged as it will affect all of your drains. Here are three signs of a serious problem:

  • Issues with the main sewer line will start to show in low-lying drains first. If you notice dirty, smelly water standing in your shower, tub, or floor drains, call a plumber right away.
  • A slow drain can point to several different issues, but if you notice that all of your drains, including toilets, are suddenly draining very slowly or have standing water, that’s another clear sign your sewer line has a clog.
  • Lastly, strange noises from your pipes can mean a clog. As the drains become blocked, air can become trapped in your pipes and cause a rumble, clunking, or gurgle sound when the water is turned on.

How to Avoid a Sewer Line Clog

The main contributors to a sewer line clog are fats, oils, and grease. Without regular grease trap cleaning, these elements can seep into sewer lines, harden, and eventually clog up the line entirely. Should you experience a clog, a hydro jetting service will take care of the issue. To avoid this happening, opt for regular preventative maintenance.
