Is your sewer line running up to speed?
There are a few signs and warnings that can help you to determine if your sewer line is broken and needs to be repaired.
One sign is the smell. If your sewer line is bad and needs repaired, there will be a foul smell in the basement of your home. It will smell like a strong scent of sewage. This means that it is most likely a broken pipe and will need repaired.
Another sign that your sewer line might need repaired is the sound the water makes. If you hear a bubbling sound when you flush the toilet or use the sink, then that is a sign that your sewage line might be clogged and it needs fixed.
Standing water is also a sign that your sewage line might need repaired. If there are puddles of water around where the sewer pipe is located, then that is a sign that there is a broken or busted pipe.
Also see if the water is coming back up into your tub or drain. If the water is not going down when you run it or if it is slow when you try to drain it, then this could mean that you have a blockage in the sewage pipe. Also check your toilets. If you flush your toilet and the water does not fill back up or every time you flush the toilet the water fills back up at different levels, then this could also mean a sewer pipe blockage.
These are all signs that something has gone wrong with your sewage pipes, and if you have any of these signs, then your sewage lines most likely need repaired. Your best option would be to call a plumber and he can check to see if your sewage lines need repaired and will fix them if so.
