Three Signs That You Need A Sewer Repair

Blog

Your sewer is a very important part of your home's makeup because it takes care of all the sewage that you and your family create. Since your sewer is so important, it is essential that you ensure it is always functioning as it should. Thankfully there are some things to look out for to make sure your sewer has no issues. That article will discuss 3 signs that you need a sewer repair. 

Soggy Patches In Your Yard 

If your sewer has a leak somewhere in the line, the liquid that is escaping the pipe generally has to go somewhere. This normally ends up being in a puddle around the actual sewer line. Since most sewer lines are located underneath the front yard of homes, this can result in soggy spots in your front yard. So, if you find that you have random soggy patches in your front yard, and you are sure that your irrigation system is functioning as it should, then you may want to consider calling a plumber to come and check out your sewer line to see if you are having any leaking issues. Also because excess water in certain areas can cause your grass to grow in thicker and taller, this is something to watch out for as well. 

Your Drains Are Clogging Up

If several of the drains in your home are starting to clog up on you, this may be a sign that you have a sewer problem. All of the drains in your home are connected to your sewer line. Therefore, if your sewer line is backed up or otherwise malfunctioning, then your drains are going to malfunctions as well. This can make for very unsanitary liquids coming up through your drains, and should be taken care of immediately before this can cause any health issues for you and your family. A plumber will be able to find the source of the clog and repair it right away. 

Odor

If you constantly smell a fowl odor outside of your home, this is likely caused by a problem with your sewer. Because sewage has such a potent smell, you will likely notice it right away. While this is good in terms of noticing an issue soon after it arises, it still is not enjoyable to smell this whenever you are outside of your home. Thankfully, a plumber can use the smell as a guide to find the leak in the line, and get the problem fixed as soon as possible.
