Only when something goes wrong do most of us really think about our plumbing system. Most of it is hidden away under cupboards and in the walls, the rest of it is actually buried under the house. In fact, arguably the most critical part of your entire plumbing system, the main sewer line, is buried in the soil under your house.
The main sewer line is meant to carry waste water and solids away from your home and take them to the city sewer system so that they can be disposed of properly. All of the drains in your home lead to and connect to the main sewer line, making it a very important part of your entire plumbing system.
In fact, when there is a malfunction with your main sewer line, you will notice it in the plumbing inside your home.
Some of the issues you might have come up include:
Toilets: Since toilets have the most direct connection to the main sewer line, it is highly unlikely that any of the toilets in your home will function if there is an issue with the main sewer line. Troubles with all of the toilets in your home simultaneously, is a sure sign that there is a problem with your main sewer line
Clogs: The sinks, tubs, and showers in your home have a very clear connection to the main sewer line, and if there is a breakdown with the sewer line the pressure in the system will be disrupted and the plumbing fixtures in your home will all develop clogs or will refuse to drain
Unusual: If the fixtures and appliances in your home start to act strange, like the toilet overflows when the washing machine drains, this is a very clear indication that you have a bigger problem in your main sewer line
