Signs There Are Problems with Your Sewer Line
Sewer or septic lines are buried in your yard, making it impossible to see the actual pipe. In turn, this can make it difficult to know when there’s a problem with your sewer line, unless you are aware of the signs:
- Foul–smelling puddles on your property – If there’s a breach in your sewer line, the escaping wastewater will make its way to the surface of your yard, creating puddles that are likely to be odiferous.
- General sewer smell around your property – Even if wastewater hasn’t made its way to the surface of your yard, the sewer gases will, and they will act as a strong indication that something is up with your sewer line.
- Gurgling toilets and drains – If a single toilet or drain is gurgling, there probably isn’t an issue with your sewer line. But if all your sinks and toilets are gurgling every time they are used, it’s time to have one of our experts take a look at your sewer line.
What Causes a Sewer Line to Back Up?
There are a few common causes for sewer line back–ups that our pros have seen. The first is putting inappropriate items into your drains and toilets. When it comes to drains, it’s important to properly dispose of fats, oils, grease (FOG), and food waste. Toilets can be similarly misused. Nothing but specific paper goods like toilet paper and flushable wipes should be flushed down the toilet. Disposing of garbage items, wrappers, and other types of inappropriate materials is a sure–fire way to develop a back up in your sewer line.
Another common perpetrator is tree roots. The roots of trees run deep into your yard’s soil and are incredibly strong. They can easily wrap around your sewer line and crush it, or infiltrate it and the roots will continue to grow inside the pipe, creating a major blockage. If your sewer line is more than 40 years old, it may fall prey to corrosion. Sewer piping is meant to be long lasting and durable, but it isn’t meant to last forever. At some point rust may set in, and once it does, it will spread. Make sure to call our Boston, MA team at Cooling Unlimited, Inc. to deal with your sewer line troubles, no matter their cause.
