Have you noticed a patch of extra lush green grass in your yard? The leaking sewage can actually function as a fertilizer causing its healthy, green appearance. Constant wastewater and sanitary sewer blockages and backups, notice new cracks in the foundation slab, under the foundation or in the yard, sinkholes and foundation settlement are all signs your sewer could be in trouble.
Do you smell sewage marked by lingering sewer gas odor in and around your property? There is likely an issue with your sewer line.
Flooding or water spots in the basement or foundation especially around the drains, usually accompanied by a foul odor could mean trouble for your sewer.
Or, is water is draining very slowly from the sinks, toilets and bathtubs? This is another sign your sewer could be giving you. And, if there is noticeably decreased water pressure in the sink or shower, or varying water levels in your toilet bowl this could be another one.
Have you heard a loud gurgling noise coming from flow of water through pipes while using the shower or washing the dishes? Your sewer is trying to tell you something…
Another way your sewer lets itself known is in your wallet. There could be a sudden rise in the water bill compared to previous months indicating leakage and wastage of water.
These are just some of the ways your sewer tries to tell you it needs repair. If you do experience any of these issues, you should have your sewer inspected as soon as possible. It is extremely important to keep property drains and pipes clean and unclogged at all times. A clogged or damaged sewer line can have long-lasting effects on your home’s plumbing system if left unattended.
