Signs of Trouble with Your Sewer Line

If you hop into the shower before work, only to find that the water spilling forth from your shower head is icy cold, you’ll realize pretty quickly that you have a serious problem on your hands. However, there are many issues with your plumbing system that are a bit trickier to recognize. Your sewer line, for instance, is entirely hidden from view, and issues with its operation may not have as immediate an impact as the aforementioned lack of hot water. There are plenty of warning signs which may alert you to trouble with your sewer line in Spring, TX though. You just have to know what to look out for. Contact a member of the Milton Frank Plumbing if you notice the following problems on your property.

Foul Odors Coming from Drains or in Basement

If you enter the basement of your home, only to be met with the odor of sewage, you need to contact a member of our staff immediately. It is very possible that your sewer line is backed up, damaged, or otherwise compromised. The same is true if you have a sewer odor coming from your toilets or drains. You really do not want to wait to act until your sewer line backs up into your home.

Bubbling Sound Coming from Drains or Toilet

When you drain your sink and hear a gurgling sound, it may be a sign that you’ve got a drain clog. If you hear a bubbling sound when draining any fixture in the home, though, or when you flush your toilet, then it is very possible that the problem is actually with your sewer line. If you have a clogged sewer line, you need a professional plumber to evaluate the situation and to resolve the problem immediately.

Patches of Bright Green Grass

Should your sewer line develop a leak or a more serious break, then the sewage and liquid within that line can serve to fertilize the area of the lawn above and around that leak. We all want our lawns to look their best, of course, but this is not the way to go about greening up your grass. Contact a member of our team if you have a suspiciously green patch of grass on your lawn, especially if it is paired with the familiar odor of sewage.
