Causes & Warning Signs for Main Sewer Clogs

All the plumbing fixtures, including the drains and pipes, are connected to your sewer line hence the main sewer line can take a number of daily abuses through improper usages. There are a number of issues that can affect your sewer line and cause clogs, you may want to schedule a maintenance service with Mr. Rooter Plumbing to resolve these issues before they create bigger problems. 

Causes of Main Sewer Clogs

Sewer pipe damage is the number one reason for a clogged main sewer line. The pipe damage could be as a result of broken or ruptured sewer, due to shifting soil, increased traffic on the ground above the sewer line, leaking joints or corrosion along the sewer pipes. 

A sagging sewer line may also cause sewer clogs, these are bellied pipes that have sunk into the soil due to different soil and ground conditions. Tree root infiltration can also cause main sewer line clogs especially due to loosen connections between pipes or when tree roots grow in search of moisture along the pipelines. 

Flushing debris such as toys and papers down the toilet will also cause sewer line blockage in the end. Pouring grease and food particles down the drain will also cause clogged main sewer line eventually. Whatever the case is, you can rely on Mr. Rooter Plumbing for a reliable solution. 

What are the Warning Signs That You Have a Sewer Line Issue?

Frequent backups developing in your drains is the number one sign you have a sewer line issue. Please don’t use any liquid sewer line cleaning for this problem, give us a call at Mr. Rooter Plumbing and we will provide a lasting solution. 

Clogging of multiple fixtures is another sign that you have a sewer line issue. If for instance your toilet or shower drains is clogging continuously it could be as a result of a blockage to a pipe connected to your sewer line. A very critical issue in the sewer line is when two or more plumbing fixtures are backing up are the same time. 

Strange Reactions When using some plumbing fixtures may also be a sign of sewer line issue. If for instance, water backs up when you flush the toilet or the toilet water simply starts to bubble, you should call a certified plumber for a solution. Hearing a gurgling noise from your bathtub or toilet is another sign that your main sewer line might have been clogged. 

You should also be on the lookout for changes in your lawn. The sewer line will normally extend from your home and through your lawn and unto the municipal sewage system.
