How To Spot A Sewer Line Issue Outside Your Home
If you notice an unusually wet area in your yard, it is often due to some type of water leak. But if the grass in that wet area is also much greener and taller than the rest of the yard, then there is likely to be a sewer line leak in the area. Part of what is being carried in the sewer line is human waste, which also happens to be a very good fertilizer. As a result, the grass will look much lusher and grow very rapidly. In addition, you might notice that there is a foul smell in that same area. If the moist area is not in the grass, the only indication that it is a sewer line leak will be the odor and possibly some discoloration.
Signs Of A Sewer Line Leak In Your Home
The most obvious sign of any sewer issues is sewage backing up in your basement or at the lowest drain in your home. This is often in a utility sink or a shower on the lowest level of your home. Not only will you see the solid waste that has come from the sewer line but you will also notice the foul smell. The bad smell can also be a hint as to the issues even if there only appears to be water backing up in your home.
A less noticeable sign that you have a sewer line issue is when your sinks and showers begin to drain more slowly. If you notice a slow draining sink, tub or shower, check other drains to determine if they are also slow draining. A single slow drain is most often due to a clog, but if all the drains are clearing more slowly, then it is likely a leak or issue in the sewer line. And even though plumbing issues are never good, a slow drain is better than sewage backing up in your house.
