Sewer Leak Red Flags to Watch For

The main sewer line in your home or business is crucial to keeping your plumbing working efficiently. This large pipe moves the waste from your place to the sewer, and if it clogs or leaks, the consequences can be disastrous. Effects of a leaking sewer line can include sewer gas poisoning, contaminated water, health issues and gastrointestinal problems, home damage, and more. It’s important to know the signs of a sewer line leak so you can identify it and repair it promptly if this happens to your home or business.

Signs you may have a leaking sewer line include the following:

  • A foul smell of sewage or sulfur in the basement or yard
  • Wet patches, puddles, or flooding in the yard
  • Areas of thicker, greener grass from sewer contents
  • Presence of pests such as bugs and rodents
  • Gurgling noises from the pipes
  • Water damage or leakage in your home
  • Tinted or colored water 
  • A large increase in your water bill

If you notice these symptoms, it’s best to contact a professional plumber promptly to avoid further damage, health issues, and costly and extensive repairs. It’s also recommended to practice preventive measures, like flushing only toilet paper and no other materials, managing tree roots, and scheduling routine inspections and maintenance.
