These systems remain safely underground until these warning signs demand sewer line repair:
- Extreme odor is coming from the yard or basement due to sewage that is not able to travel to the main sewer lines
- Drains in bathroom sinks and bathtub drain slowly or not at all
- Sewage is found backing up in your bathtub or toilet
- There isn’t water in the toilet bowls
- Flooding in areas around sewage lines from leaking pipe joints
What To Do if Your Basement Drain is Backing Up
Dealing with a sewer backup in the basement can be an overwhelming and unpleasant experience. But, there are some steps you can take to fix the issue.
Here are some things to try:
- Turn off the water supply to your home: This will prevent any more water from flowing into the sewer line.
- Determine the cause of the backup: Common causes include tree roots, grease buildup, and broken pipes. If you can't identify the cause, it's best to contact a qualified plumber.
- Attempt to clear the blockage: You can try using a plunger or drain snake to clear the blockage. If this doesn't work, avoid using chemical drain cleaners as they can damage your pipes.
- Call a qualified plumber: If the backup persists, or you're unsure of what to do, it's best to call a qualified plumber. They have the expertise and equipment to quickly diagnose and resolve the issue, while also ensuring that the repair is done safely.
Remember, dealing with a sewer backup can be hazardous and requires specialized knowledge and equipment. If you're unsure of what to do or feel uncomfortable attempting the fix yourself, it's best to contact a qualified plumber like A-Team Plumbing. We can help you resolve the issue and get your home back to normal as quickly and safely as possible.
