Signs of a Sewer Clog
One of the first signs that your sewer line is clogged is if you notice water backing up in your sink or tub. This is usually accompanied by slow drains. Ignoring this problem will only make it worse. The backup water will increase and eventually, your whole house will start to smell bad.
What to Do
If you think your sewer line is clogged, the first thing you should do is avoid using any water in your home. This includes flushing the toilet and running the dishwasher or washing machine. Otherwise, you will just make the problem worse.
Next, you will want to try a plunger. If this doesn’t work, you can try a plumber’s snake. However, if neither of these methods works, it’s time to call a professional.
Remember: home remedies like pouring hot water down the drain or using chemical cleaners are not effective and can even damage your pipes.
