Common Signs of Sewer Blocks
Water is a daily and all-time need for residential or commercial property owners. This makes the proper working of a sewage system almost a priority in a home or a commercial establishment. In homes, consistent water supply in kitchens and bathrooms is essential for hassle-free daily living. Running a commercial facility may need massive quantities of water, making efficient water and sewage systems central to their functioning.
Effective sewer lines and sewer system are a common requirement in both residential and commercial properties. Any problems related to the water connections and sewer lines obstruct the smooth functioning of your daily life. We at Mr Splash Plumbing Sydney offer excellent sewer block clearing services. Here are some common signs of sewer blockages to look out for.
Signs That Your Sewer Line is Clogged
It is not always easy to know whether a sewer line is actually clogged. But a little closer inspection can reveal some signs of clogging. Some of the main signs that indicate there may be a clog in your sewer lines are:
1. Backflow of Sewer Water
The main sewer line works as a channel to drain water from the branch lines in the sewer system. A clog in this line can affect the flow of water in all the smaller lines connected to it. This water gets pushed back and floods the shower and bathroom areas in the house. If you have noticed sewage or wastewater coming through your bath shower or even bathtub drains it could mean there is a blockage in your main sewer line. You can call a plumber to ascertain the cause.
2. Standing Sewer Water in the Clean-Outs
Just check the sewer clean-out in your home to determine whether there is a clog in the main sewer line. Most new properties have clean-outs circular lids fitted in them. You see flowing or standing sewer water when you remove the cap. If you find still water, or the water flowing out of the pipe, it is an indication of a possible clog in the sewer line.
3. The Presence of Several Backed-Up Drains
The sewage system on your property is made of various sewage lines linked to each other and operate as a part of the whole system. Naturally, any clogging problem in one or more parts of the system can bring the entire system to a halt. For example- you flushed your toilet and saw some dirty water in your bathtub.
This happens because the water blocked by a clog in the Toilet Drain may find its way through a drain linked to the bathtub. There may be a block in the main drain which prevents water from passing from the Toilet Drain. You may also hear a bubbling sound due to the slow draining of water or air pockets.
If you have noticed any of these signs in your plumbing systems, its best to call in an expert plumber from our company to identify where the problem lies.
