Here are some of the most common indicators a sewer repair may be required:
Sewage back-ups and blockages. As one of the most prevalent signs of a sewage problem, water backflow (often seen in a sink or toilet) can signal failure of a properly functioning sewer line.
Sewer odor. A constant foul odor around your property can raise concern that your sewer line should be professionally inspected.
Slow-moving drains. Drains in sinks, tubs, and showers that are slow-moving can indicate a clog that’s occurred from sewage back-up. This is a major sign of sewage issues if more than one drain in your home has this problem.
Soggy spots on lawn. If the ground in your yard feels damp or soggy in certain areas (especially if there’s been no heavy rainfall), this may indicate a leaky sewer line.
Septic waste in yard. Any build-up of wastewater in a yard can indicate a broken sewer line that should be investigated by a professional plumber.
Old sewer lines are often subject to the issues above. There are other issues that can affect new sewer lines, including tree roots, corrosion, high temperatures, and stormwater runoff. Failing to address sewer line repairs can often lead to the need for a full sewer line replacement in many cases.
