Symptoms of Sewer Line Issues

Home / Symptoms of Sewer Line Issues

Your sewer line is an essential aspect of your home’s plumbing system. This is why it’s important to keep it in good condition. One of the ways you can achieve this is to schedule timely sewer camera inspection services in Miami, FL from Bradley Plumbing and Gas to detect any potential problems. 

There are certain symptoms that alert you that you have sewer line issues. Here are some of them.

Foul Odors

Foul odors are one of the biggest telltale signs that you have a problem with your sewer line. These odors should have no place in your home as they can pose health risks to you and your family. A pipe camera inspection can determine the exact spot where the problem lies so the appropriate repairs can be made.

Sewer Backups

If your toilet, bathtub or shower are backing up regularly, it signifies an issue such as a broken sewer line. A single plumbing fixture having problems means a simple drain inspection may be needed. Multiple plumbing fixtures being affected means that you have a much larger problem with your sewer line and need more extensive repairs. In any case, camera-based inspections are invaluable.

Slow Draining

When water is too slow to drain from your fixtures, you might have a clog or a sewer issue that needs to be looked into. A plumbing inspection should be done to determine what needs to be fixed. You may even need a new sewer line altogether.

Unusual Noises

Your toilet, in particular, may begin making odd gurgling sounds when you have sewer line issues. In most cases, your sewer line is probably broken. A sewer video inspection can pinpoint the location that needs repairs.

Very Green Spot on Your Lawn

Lush, green spots on your otherwise dry yard indicate that your sewer line has cracked and is leaking sewage, and the reason the grass is uncharacteristically green is due to sewage leaking out and providing the lawn with fertilizer.
