Detecting Potential Sewer Line Issues

For homes designed with a city sewer system, most of the time, the public will maintain the line that runs along the street.

However, in most cases, the maintenance of the channel that runs from the house to the street is the responsibility of the property owner.

Causes of Channel Problems

The obvious problem, and perhaps the most common with sewer systems, is the build-up of dirt that builds up over time from repeated sewage leaks around the home.

A second potential risk to sewer systems is tree roots, which can damage underground sewer pipes, causing them to crack or clog.

Older sewer pipes are often made of steel or clay and are therefore prone to corrosion or cracking over time. Since this problem is not easy to spot, here are some signs that you may have a problem with your drain.

Toilet bowl water level

If the sewer pipe is clogged, there may be a water level deviation in the toilet. If the water level in the toilet is usually low, high, or just changes regularly, it's a good idea to contact a licensed plumber to have your plumbing checked.

Presence of strange taste or sound

If you notice a unique, distinct sound, such as for example, blowing water from a toilet, sink, or other drain, it may be time to ask a professional to have the CCTV sewer pipe checked.

If you ever notice a strange smell coming from the drain or yard, a plumbing should be done as soon as possible.
