You Might Have A Broken Sewer Line
Your home’s main sewer line is buried beneath the yard, making it hard to identify a potentially broken sewer-line.
Every now and then, your bathroom, drain or sink can experience a drain that gets a bit plugged up, in these situations, a clog can be a pretty easy fix. But when a clog occurs frequently, especially at multiple drains, this may be a clear sign of an obstructed sewer line.
Soggy Water Spots In The Yard
A leaking sewer line can be caused by a break or collapse. Some of these leaks are a little more difficult to find than others, especially in areas where the sewage line is buried very deep.
Even though a leak inside the sewer line is all but invisible, it might grow in warmer climates where it isn’t necessary to spoil lines really heavy because of a shallow frost.
You may not always be able to identify a sewage line issue, however, there’s a higher probability that you will most likely smell it. Any odor of sewer gas that is sufficiently powerful to permeate a house is a notable sign of a plumbing problem.
This may be an indication of a sewer line clog as backups will often push against sewer gases up drains. Nonetheless, if the odor is potent in the yard, it is most likely that the sewer line is leaking.
