Symptoms of a Sewer Line Backup

Before you reach for the phone to call a local plumber, there are a few signs to look for when dealing with a backed up sewer.

Bad smells

The clearest indication of a backed up sewer line is the presence of foul odours near your drains and in your basement. If you have a septic tank, there will likely also be bad smells in your yard near the septic tank.

Reemerging sewage in toilet and bathtub

Seeing discoloured and foul smelling liquid reemerge in your toilets or bathtub is another sign you might be dealing with a sewer backup.

Empty toilet bowl

A related symptom of a backed up sewer line is a dry toilet bowl with no water in it. This is due to the negative drain pressure associated with a sewer backup.

Can I fix a sewer line backup myself?

Fixing a backed up sewer line is not as simple as clearing a normal clogged drain. Whilst there are many DIY solutions to unclogging a drain, clearing a sewer backup is a lot more complicated.

Sewage systems are complex and integrated into every plumbing aspect of a property. There are many interconnected parts that require careful consideration when attempting to fix a backup. Dealing with raw sewage is also a health risk for inexperienced plumbers, as it can contain bacteria and toxins that can easily cause illness.

Repairing a sewer backup is not something you want to attempt unless you have experience, as mistakes can be costly. Your plumbing system and your family’s health is not something you want to gamble with. That’s why when it comes to sewer backups, Drain Clear should be your first call.
