The configuration of valves, pipes, and fixtures that make up your plumbing system extend far outside of your home. As a matter of fact, there is a whole other portion of your system that is buried under your home. This part of your plumbing system contains the main sewer line, which all fixtures and pipes from your home lead to.
The job of the main sewer line is to bring used water and waste away from your home and to the city sewer system, where it will be disposed of and treated. A problem with your sewer line can require major and expensive repairs, and should always been investigated by a professional.
If you notice any indications that your sewer line might be damaged or malfunctioning, don’t hesitate to contact the experts at Absolute Plumbing and Drain. Some of the signs of sewer line problems can include:
- Clogs: If you are experiencing clogs simultaneously in more than one fixture inside of your home, this could be a clear indication of a sewer line problem
- Toilets: It is highly unusual that you will have properly working toilets if you are having a sewer line problem. If the toilets in your home are not flushing or are overflowing it is likely you have a problem in your sewer line
