Telltale Signs of a Clogged or Leaky Sewer

Your sewer system is important, we’re pretty sure we don’t have to tell you that. Whether you rely on a city sewer line, or a septic tank that contains the waste of your home, they’re vital for a safe and sanitary way of life. Therefore, if you experience any sewer issues, you’re better off getting them checked out by a professional so your way of life and comfort aren’t uprooted.

This blog post is centered on some problems that can develop with a sewer. Not only can our team help you with sewer cleaning in Plano, TX, but we can even repair your broken sewer line or septic tank if you’re dealing with the aftermath of an ordeal. We’re sewer specialists, and our tips are designed to help you diagnose a malfunctioning sewer system and get it fixed before anything else goes wrong.

So, let’s get started!

Green Grass

Do you know the saying, “the grass is always greener on the other side?” Well, that might be true, but greener grass in this particular instance is a bad thing. If your grass is looking noticeably greener, or you’re seeing an overgrowth of weeds, plants, and other things in your lawn, then you might be suffering from a leaking sewer or septic system.

Think about it, grass loves the phosphates and nitrogen that exist in your waste. The moment a sewer or septic system starts to leak, all of those nutrients (as well as the more foul chemicals) will be released into the soil and absorbed by the plant life. It’s better for your home, your sanitation, and the environment to stick to store-bought fertilizer and plug up the leak in your septic or sewer line.

Foul Odors

We probably don’t have to explain to you where the foul odors are coming from. The important part is that you recognize that your property isn’t supposed to smell like this. Foul odors can be a classic sign of a leaking or problematic sewer system, and one that is easy to detect from a homeowner’s perspective. Make sure you give us a call if you’re getting foul odors off of your property.

Gurgling Noises

Is your drain gurgling? That might just be a problem with your clogged drain, but we want you to try something. Use some of the other drains in your home and see if they’re gurgling as well. A gurgling noise is usually the sound of air bubbles being released because the drain system is seriously clogged. If all of the drains in your home are gurgling, then the source might be a problem in your sewer or septic system!

Clogged Drains

Naturally, we can’t talk about gurgling drains without discussing clogged drains. If your home is inundated with multiple clogged drains, the drains might not be the issue, the source might be your sewer system. Don’t worry, a clogged sewer is an easy fix. Our team provides sewer cleaning services at an affordable rate, using powerful systems like a hydro jet to clear away any debris that might be causing problems.
