Drains in your home lead to the main sewer line which leads out of your home to either a septic tank, or the city sewer. How does a homeowner know when to detect a sewer leak since it’s impossible to visually see the sewer line itself?  Here are 5 signs every Indianapolis area homeowner should be aware of, in order to determine if there may be a sewer leak.

1. Sound of water running:

The sound of water constantly running is a signal or warning that there may be a sewer line leak.  First, in order to determine the source of water running, be sure to turn all of your faucets off, and double check your toilets.  Any sounds of water tricling in teh walls or below the floors may be a sign of a leak in the sewer pipes.

2.  Unpleasant Odor:

If you notice some unusual smells or a bad odor, this can be indicative of a sewer line leak.  Sewer lines that are leaking can be an ideal environment for bacterial growth behinds walls causing mold and mildew growth.  You may notice a smell outside in your yard if the sewer line has a leak in the outer perimeter of your home.

3.  Spongy Floor:

Sewer lines intertwine throughout the joists of your home and a leak towards the surface of your home’s sub-flooring can allow water to build up or pool causing the flooring to be saturated.

4.  Exceptional Landscape growth:

If you lawn is particularly green in one area over another, then you should be suspicious of a sewer or water line leak. Since landscape has a limited season of growth in Indianapolis, it’s important to pay attention to unusual growth in your yard.  Any area where your landscape is out performing other areas should be closely examined to determine if there is an sewer line issue.

5.  Sewer leaks can cause foundation cracks:

When the ground shifts caused by a sewer line saturating the area, the foundation can crack from the settling movement. The saturation of water into a foundation causes the structural to become unstable.  Watch for cracks in your home’s foundation, along with cracks in sidewalks, driveways and patios.  In Indianapolis the weather can play a large factor through freezing temperatures which cause lines to constrict and contract.
