The main sewer line that takes away your (well, you know) is critical to the function of any home or business. When that line gets clogged, it can cause a little chaos and a foul smell for that matter. But, do not worry, you can get this fixed by Carter’s My Plumber! Fascinating enough, there are a couple of causes of a main sewer clogs that can cause back-ups.
 
Though this may be a big job to fix. It is a job that needs attention as soon as possible before more damage occurs. Let’s look at some causes and symptoms.

Main Sewer Line Back-Up Causes

1. Flushing Debris Down the Toilet
  • Though there are somethings you can let go down the drain. There are some things you should not let go down into the sewer:
  • Baby Wipes, Paper Towels, Tampons, Diapers, Egg Shells, Oil/Grease, etc.
2. Tree Roots
  • Some older lines are not strong enough to bare the strength of tree roots next to them. The tree roots search for areas of water (sewer line) and actually penetrate the line.
  • Tree roots cause the line to break and a lot of trouble!
3. Sagging Sewer Line
  • A sagging sewer line is unpredictable and is a case of “it happens”. This is when the soil around the sewer line starts to settle deeper and the line has a “low spot”.
  • So, since there is a low spot this causes debris to gather and build-up there.
4. A Plain Ol’ Damaged Pipe
  • Some lines get damaged. It could be because of old age or corrosion.

Symptoms of a Backed-Up Sewer Line

1. Multiple Drains Clogged
  • If you are noticing that the kitchen, toilet, and another sink is backing-up. Then this is an indicator that you have a sewer line back-up.
  • But, also those lines could have a clog. You can fix this at home with plungers or bent wire hangers!
2. Noticeable Flooding/Soggy Patch on your Lawn
  • If you notice flooding in one particular spot on your lawn. This can be a sign that your sewer line has broke or is really backed-up.
  • A foul smell also will follow with this back-up.

How Plumbers Diagnose Your Problem

If a Main Sewer Line is backing-up or broke, a plumber will come out and diagnose it with a camera inspection. This technique is when a camera will go down the drain and out to the sewer line. That way, they can physically see if there is a clog or damage to the line. This way of diagnosing is the most accurate way to tell if you have a main sewer line back-up.
