It’s a fact of life in Maryland: with cold weather comes plumbing problems. For unprepared homeowners, the fall and winter months can wreak havoc on their home’s plumbing. One of the issues that can arise during colder weather is a clogged or damaged sewage line. Read on to learn more about the symptoms of a clogged or damaged sewage line, and don’t forget to call Metcalf Plumbing for sewage line repair.
Puddles of Water or Patches of Ice in Unexpected Areas
One of the ways that sewage line issues can manifest is in unusual pools of water on your property, which turn to ice in the winter. These puddles can be caused by a leaking sewer line. This not only indicates that you may need sewage line repair, but the excess water can also cause damage to your home’s landscaping or foundation. While puddles and patches of ice may have more benign origins, it is always a good idea to look into any sudden appearance of water on your property.
Frequent and Widespread Drain Backups
While shower drain clogs are common, a frequently-recurring drain clog can be indicative of much more than excessive hair loss. Drain backups that keep coming back, even after they have been temporarily resolved, can be a clue that your problems lie with your sewer line. Another sign that you need sewage line repair is backed up drains in multiple rooms or fixtures. If your sinks and showers are all getting backed up at once, a clogged sewer line may be the culprit.
Unexpected Reactions from Plumbing Fixtures
Have you ever noticed your toilet making noise when you use your bathroom sink or shower? Does your shower drain gurgle whenever you flush the toilet? Unexpected reactions from plumbing fixtures such as these can actually be a sign that something is wrong with your sewage line. Typically, tinkering with your sink, shower, or toilet should not affect other fixtures. If you notice strange occurrences with your home’s plumbing, contact the experts at Metcalf Plumbing for inspection and potential sewage line repair.
