4 Signs Your Sewer Line Might Be Broken

Owning a home is a lot of work, and a broken sewer line is one of the most costly and troublesome problems a homeowner can face. Here are four signs to watch out for and what you need to know to fix them.

Nasty Smells and Sewage Backup

Have you ever caught the smell of rotten eggs coming from your drain? That smell is pure sewage, and it’s a clear indication that something’s wrong with your sewer line. 

A blockage in your sewer line can lead to waste coming out of your sink and into your home. And sewage backup can affect more than just your sink. If you notice the drains in your bathtub, basement, floor, etc. emitting that same rotten smell, get in touch with Yoder Plumbing to inspect your sewer line and fix any issues.

Slow Drains and Water Backups

Have you ever tried going in for a shower and ended up taking an unintentional bath instead? Well, if you are swimming in the water buildup in your bathroom, it’s time to check those sewer lines. 

If water is draining slowly from your sink or shower, it could be a sign of a blockage in your sewer line. The sewer line carries wastewater away from your home, and if it’s blocked, the water can’t flow freely, causing slow drains and water backups. 

Regular maintenance is key to avoiding this type of problem. So if you notice something wrong, address the issue right away to prevent further damage.

Lush Grass Patches or Sinkholes

Have you spotted an unusually lush patch of grass in your yard? It could be growing faster than the rest of the lawn due to wastewater leaks from a broken sewer line. Wastewater acts as fertilizer, promoting grass growth in a specific area.

Similarly, a sinkhole in your yard could be a sign that the soil has eroded due to a broken sewer line. So if your yard is lush in some spots and sunken down in others, be sure to call Yoder Plumbing.
