Here Are 7 Signs of a Looming Sewer Drain Clog or Backup!
- You notice that multiple fixtures are not draining properly, and especially toilets. Toilets have the most direct connection to the sewer line, so are often the first indication. But sinks and bathtub drains may also become slow or stop draining.
- You notice strange reactions when using plumbing fixtures, such as when you flush the toilet and water comes up the tub drain. This is usually a clear indication of a sewer drain clog.
- You may also notice that drains are slow to drain, they gurgle, or smell of sewage.
- You see bubbles in the toilet. When the sewer drain line becomes clogged, air becomes trapped on your end of the blockage. When you run the sink, you might see bubbles come up the toilet or see the water level rise.
- If you have a drain clean-out and know where it is, you can check this to see if there is any visible blockage. Or if water is coming out, it confirms a sewer drain clog.
- When you flush your toilet, sewer water backs up through a low-lying drain, like your basement drain or outside patio or driveway drain.
- When you run the washer machine, soapy water might come up the bathtub or toilet drain. The above are 7 Signs Of A Drain Clog.
