How Do You Know If Your Sewer Line is Broken?
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 toilet, 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 might 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 bit more difficult to detect than others, especially in areas where the sewage line is buried very deep underground.
While a leak within the sewer line is all but invisible, it might develop in warmer climates where it isn’t necessary to spoil lines very heavy because of a shallow frost.
You may not always be able to identify a sewage line problem, however, there’s a high 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 might be an indication of a sewer line clog, even as backups will often push smelly sewer gases up drains. Nonetheless, if the odor is potent in the yard, it is most likely that the sewer line is leaking.
