Signs That You Need Sewer Repair

All of the waste water from your toilets and drains goes through one sewer pipe that takes the waste and water to the city’s sewer system. When this sewer line becomes clogged or broken, it can cause a number of things to happen around your home. Here are some signs that you might need sewer repair.

Strange Smells

When there are strange smells throughout your home in areas such as the bathroom and kitchen where there are drains, it is a sign that you may have a sewer backup or clog. These odors occur when the sewer line is not emptying as it should. 

Toilets Make Gurgling Noises

When you have a sewer problem, it can make your toilets make gurgling noises, particularly during or after flushing. These gurgles are the direct result of the waste not wanting to go down into the sewer drain. 

Clogged Drains

If you have drains that keep clogging no matter what you do, it could be a sign that there is something wrong with your sewer line. That waste water goes from the drain into the sewer line. If the sewer line is clogged or in disrepair, it can keep the drains from working properly.

Changes in the Lawn

There are some lawn changes that can also signal a need for sewer repair. If your lawn suddenly looks greener than ever before, it is a sign that the sewer has a break in it that is allowing waste to be soaked up by the roots. If your lawn gets soft or squishy spots, this is also a sign of a break in the sewer that needs to be replaced.
