A Clogged Sewer Line Can Cause A Real Mess

Did you know that a clogged sewer line can cause a real mess at your commercial, industrial or residential property? In the minimum, it will be an inconvenience for you and everyone else who works or lives at the property. In a worse case scenario, raw sewage, waste materials, and waste water will explode out of the toilets, sink drains, and shower/ tub drains. It certainly is a nightmare that nobody should ever have to deal with, but it happens to property owners all of the time. That’s why you simply cannot ignore the signs that you have a clogged sewer line.

So, what are the signs that you’re suffering from a clogged sewer line at your property? First and foremost, the toilets won’t flush properly. You will start noticing this because they lose suction. In essence, the toilet water will swirl longer in the bowl than usual. In addition, the toilet water and whatever is in the toilet water won’t go down the drain as strongly as it’s supposed to. At that point, it won’t take long for the toilet to stop flushing altogether. The toilet water will still swirl around the bowl, however it won’t go down the drain.

This is the point where most people attempt to use a plunger. FYI, a plunger may work, but it will only work on a temporary basis. In essence, the plunger may create just enough suction for the toilet to flush, but it certainly doesn’t fix your clogged sewer line. Another tell-tale sign that you’re having an issue with your sewer line is when you’re washing your hands in the sink or taking a shower or tub, and the water takes too long to go down the drain. At that point, it won’t take long for the drain in your sinks, showers, or tubs to stop working altogether.

This is the point where most people pour a liquid de-clogging agent down the drain. That will only work on a temporary basis, but will not fix your clogged sewer line. There is only one true solution for fixing a clogged sewer line, and it takes a professional who has the knowledge, experience, and tools to get the job done safely, quickly, and in a cost effective way that won’t break the bank.
