Your home’s main sewer line is responsible for removing wastewater from your toilets, sinks, showers, and more. When blockages occur, early detection is critical. The costs and complications associated with sewer repair can skyrocket if your system has a clog that is left unaddressed. Maryland homeowners should keep an eye out for these symptoms of a main sewer line blockage. For sewer repair and maintenance, contact the team at Metcalf Plumbing!
Frequent Toilet or Drain Clogs
Drains that clog frequently are annoying, but they can also be a sign that you need sewer repair. If your toilets, sinks, or bathtubs are getting backed up more often than usual, you may have a bigger problem in the main sewer line. Blockages and other issues further down the line can manifest as clogs in your home, so note an increased frequency in the need to plunge. If your drains are getting clogged more frequently than usual, contact the team at Metcalf Plumbing.
Multiple Drains Emptying Slowly
One of the most significant indicators of a main line sewer blockage is multiple slow or clogged drains. If you have noticed multiple sinks are draining more slowly than they have in the past, this can be an indication of a partial blockage or other issue. One type of sewer problem that homeowners face, particularly when they have older plumbing, is invading tree roots. Roots seek out moisture around pipes and enter through small cracks or gaps. The roots then accumulate toilet paper and other waste, contributing to a main line blockage.
Strange Noises When Flushing
Another sign that you may need sewer repair is unusual noises when flushing your toilets. While odd noises are often the result of toilet-specific issues, a gurgling sound in one or multiple commodes in your home can also be caused by a sewer blockage. The experts at Metcalf Plumbing can help diagnose the issue and perform sewer repair if necessary. You must address any potential sewer problems early on, as neglected issues with your home’s sewer line can escalate and ultimately result in massive property damage.
