Sewer problems are common but unfortunately, they are not always easy to fix without professional help. It, however, helps to spot the issue before it goes out of hand. The following are the tell-tale signs that you need sewer line repair;
- Slow Drains
Flush your toilet and wait. If you notice that it is taking too long to empty, you have cause for concern. You probably need sewer line repair.
- Rising Water Bills
If you notice that your water bills are getting high without a logical explanation, a sewer line leak may be the reason.
- Fluctuating Water Level In Your Toilet Bowl
If you notice that one day your toilet bowl has little water and the next day it is almost full, chances are that your sewer system is clogged, and it could cause a backup.
- Sewer Odor
Your sewer should be airtight. If you start to experience sewer odors from the bathroom or from the ground around your property, your sewer line may have a clog or a crack. You obviously need to check your property for any other causes of the smell first.
- Damp Areas On Your Lawn
You may not always be able to detect leaks in your sewer line but damp, soggy patches on the ground are a pretty good sign. You may also notice that some patches on the ground are more raised than others. This is an indication that there is some water underneath. You may also notice that some patches of the grass in your lawn are greener than other areas. This may be because the soil on that area is receiving fertilizer you did not know about-the sewage.
Cracks in walls, the ceiling or the foundation may not be the most obvious signs of plumbing issues, but they can be. If you notice any new cracks in your home, get the opinion of a professional.
With dampness comes mold. If you notice that mold or mildew is growing in your house, you probably need to get your sewer line repaired. Sure it could be a result of other issues such as rain damage but if you rule out all other possible causes, you definitely have a problem with your plumbing system.
