5 Commonly Overlooked Signs that Your Sewer Line Needs to be repaired

Slow Drains

When it comes to slow-moving drains, most people chalk it up to a clump of hair or an old earring that slipped down the drain. However, the situation may be far more serious. Slow drains are often indicative of clogged, cracked, or even broken sewer lines. If more than one drain in your house is not draining as quickly as it should, consider calling a professional plumbing service company to inspect and repair your sewer line. While it can be easy to disregard or even overlook slow-moving drains, failure to respond can lead to disasters such as leaks, geysers, and even flooding. Don’t risk the safety of your home! Call Big John’s today to inspect and replace or repair your sewer line if you suspect that it may be damaged.

Bubbling Sounds

As mentioned above, clogged sewer lines can prevent drains from working properly. However, your household drains may not necessarily appear to be clogged or slow-moving at all. Sometimes, the only signs are air bubbles and bubbling noises in toilets, kitchen sinks, bathroom sinks, showers, and bathtubs. Depending on the layout of your pipes, you may even hear gurgling noises coming from walls, floors, and ceilings. Bubbling sounds are usually a sign of a clogged sewer line in need of repair and may last long after a sink or shower appears to have drained, as the water continues down the pipe. Big John’s Plumbing, Heating, and Air can prevent sewer line problems from getting out of hand and damaging your home to a point that is irreversible. Call Big John’s today if you suspect your sewer line needs to be repaired.

Toilet Level Changes

If your toilet level doesn’t seem to be consistent, pay close attention to when it may be rising or falling. Occasional toilet level fluctuations are normal, but frequent changes in your toilet’s water level are a telltale sign of a clogged sewer line. If your toilet’s water level seems to be changing for no reason, this means that the water pressure in your home is experiencing frequent variations. Even if your drains seem to be working fine, don’t overlook what could be a symptom of a disastrous household issue. Big John’s Plumbing, Heating, and Air can inspect any signs of a clogged pipeline that your home may be experiencing and make fast, long-lasting repairs. If you have noticed any of the signs of a clogged sewer line in your home, call Big John’s today for a repair.
