So, what do you look for when your sewer line is clogged? What are the signs of a clogged drain?
Use this handy checklist to establish your drain cleaning needs.
1. Back-ups on Multiple Fixtures
When more than one of your fixtures tend to become backed up, it is an obvious indication of a clogged drain or sewer line. Toilets are most commonly affected, but it’s quite possible for your other fixtures to also become backed up.
Tip: The first step is to check your shower and tub to see if they also back up.
2. Unusual Plumbing Occurrences
If, at any time, your plumbing system behaves in a strange or unusual way, it might be a sign that you’re in need of drain cleaning services. Did you notice that water backs up into the shower or tub when you flush the toilet? Is air trapped in the plumbing system when you run the sink? Does the washing machine water cause the toilet to overflow? Those are all signs of a clogged drain, and a sure sign that you should call for expert assistance.
Tip: Test all your fixtures to see if anything unusual happens. However, note that these are usually signs of a major blockage, and they rarely occur with the average clogged drain.
3. Water From the Clean Out Pipe
If there is waste or water coming up out of the main line cleanout, you most definitely have a clogged sewer line. Be sure to check the clean-out to see if there is any water or waste backing up from the main sewer line.
Tip: Don’t mess with clogged drains or attempt drain cleaning unless you are experienced.
