A Denver Colorado sewer line clog could trigger major damage and hassle for a homeowner. A clog in your main sewer line could cause raw sewage backup into your home from the drains. This backup causes significant damage to the home and may require an expensive sewer line repair or replacement.
By paying attention, your house will tell you in advance that all is not well. Here are several warning signs that your main sewer line is clogged.
Clogged Toilet or Drain
One of the most common warning signs is a clogged toilet or drain. Water might back up from the drains, and you might hear a gurgling sound. If you hear gurgling sounds from a toilet after the washing machine finished a cycle, your sewer line might be clogged.
Tree roots often cause problems with sewer lines. Slow flowing drains and gurgling noises could indicate that tree roots have grown into your sewer line. Take action soon, before tree roots completely block your sewer line.
Water Comes Up
You might see water around the floor drain in your basement. If your main line is clogged, anything you send through your wastewater lines could come up into the basement or a bathtub.
Multiple Drains Are Backed Up
You may have several drains that are slow to drain. If you notice the plumbing fixtures gurgling, it is a sure sign that your main sewer line is clogged.
Sewer line clogs are a big deal. If you suspect you have a clog, shut off your main water valve and contact an expert ASAP.
