How do you know when you need a professional plumber for a backed up sewer line? We don’t often think about a sewer line until there’s a problem. And when there is a problem, it goes south rather quickly. It’s important that a professional plumber is contacted quickly to rectify the unpleasant problem. Here are some of the signs and symptoms you should look out for when having a backed up sewer line.

Backed up Sewer Line

Clogged Drains

Yes, drains can be clogged from time to time, and they often can be a simple fix. But if it’s a regular occurrence in your home, or there are multiple drains backed up at the same time, there is something bigger going on. Most likely the sewer line is backed up. This means it’s time to contact your plumber now.

Gurgling Sounds

When you flush the toilet, do you notice a gurgling sound in the shower? Does the toilet water rise when the washing machine is running? This is due to the fact that the water has nowhere to go due to a clog in the sewer line. It’s time to call a professional plumber like Wyman Plumbing.

Air Bubbles

You’ll notice air bubbles when a sewer is backing up. These bubbles can appear in your drains or even toilets. This happens when air gets trapped in the drain, and water is trying to flow around the debris that is trapped, so it forms bubbles. If you see bubbles in more than one location, it’s a serious problem and a professional plumber needs to be contacted.

Problems Flushing

If the toilet isn’t flushing as it should, or you notice bubbles such as the ones mentioned above, try using a plunger. But if the plunger doesn’t correct the problem, or there are numerous toilets, or multiple locations in the home having a problem, you can assume that the sewer line is clogged. It is time to get the help of professional plumbing services.
