How to Tell if You Need Sewer Line Repair

A damaged sewer line can make your domestic life downright miserable. With sewage backing up and rancid odors wafting through your home, you need the sewer line to be repaired as soon as possible. When you need sewer line repair, make sure you choose a plumber that provides prompt emergency service. Here's a look at six signs that it's time for sewer line repair.

Foul Odors

Oftentimes, the smell of raw sewage is an unmistakable sign of sewer line trouble. But it's worth noting that sometimes a sewer line problem won't cause an overwhelming stench. In some cases, it'll be more of a lingering musty odor. Still, even if the smell isn't nauseating, the repairs should be done right away.


A damaged sewer line could cause your home's humidity level to increase. As a result, it's more likely that you'll notice mold growth. If you see mold growing on your bathroom walls, there's a strong possibility you'll be able to follow the discoloration back to your toilet.

Slow Draining

Sometimes, minor clogs are the source of slow draining. In such a scenario, you might be able to handle the problem yourself. But when sewer line trouble causes slow draining, it's best to let an experienced professional handle the issue.

Lawn Is Greener

If your lawn suddenly looks more verdant, the reason may be that a sewer leak is providing it with nutrients.

Gurgling Noises

A damaged sewer line can cause the toilet to make gurgling sounds. These noises often mean that a major sewage back-up is coming.

Toilet Is Backing Up

With a sewer line problem, one of the worst consequences is that sewage backs up into the toilet. When this occurs, you need a plumber to show up as soon as possible to get your bathroom back into proper working order.
