Is My Sewer Line Broken or Clogged?

Do you think you’re having sewer problems but you’re not sure? Unless there is sewage actively flowing into your home, it can be hard to tell if you’re having a sewer problem or not. Here are a few signs that it’s time to call a plumber. Our team at The Pipe Doctor can diagnose your sewer problem and fix it fast so you can get back to your regular schedule soon!

Sewer Backups

If your sewer is actively backing up into your or your plumbing frequently has backup problems, it’s time to call for clogged sewer repair. We’ll send an expert to your home to confirm that the problem is in your sewer, then find a way to fix the problem with minimal hassle for you

Mold & Mildew

If you have recurring mold and/or mildew that you can’t get rid of, call to have us check on your sewer line. If there’s a leak behind a wall or one that is oozing into your walls, it can fuel mold/mildew growth that won’t stop until you take care of the sewer problem.

Green, Lush Lawn Spots

Lush spots in your hard can indicate a broken sewer line. When the line breaks, sewage oozes into your yard. The nitrogen and other chemicals in sewage promote plant growth. If one part of your yard is more green and lush than the others, it may be time to check for sewer issues.

Sewer Smells

Do you smell sewage in your home or whenever something goes down the drain? Your sewer is designed to keep both smells and actual sewage away from your home. Smelling sewage is significant in the list of broken sewer line symptoms.

Lawn Indentations

Do you have sunken spots in your yard or certain pavers or sections of the sidewalk that are lower than others? When sections of soil get wet, they can sink down and pull whatever is on the surface down with them.

Slow Drains

Your drains may not back up but, if they run slow, it’s time to look at sewer line repair. We will get those drains flowing freely once again.

Rely on us at The Pipe Doctor to fix all of your sewer line problems. Whether you need sewer line repair or clogged sewer repair, we’ll take care of everything so you don’t have to worry about your sewer anymore.
