Signs You Have a Problem With Your Main Sewer Line

If your shower is only trickling, your water line may be the problem. However, you should always check the showerhead and adjust the water pressure, just in case.

If, after adjusting the showerhead, the water is still not flowing right, it is very likely that you have an issue with your water line. Low water pressure is not only confined to showers, but it can also happen to other pipes in your home as well.

Take a Look at the Water Pressure

Bad Odor in the Tub and Sink 


If you see brown water in your sink or tub, then that is a sign that you are having sewer problems. This is often due to clogs.

Clogs can occur when grease oil, dirt, and other objects get into your drain over time and cause a build-up. Using a drain cleaner can also make wastewater get backed up in your home.

There are times when the cleaner may harden in your pipes, causing a backup, which may require plumbing services from Tiger Plumbing.

 

A Flooded Basement 


A flooded basement is a sure sign that you have sewer problems. If your home has a septic tank, you may begin to see muddy water close to the tank. This means there is definitely an issue with your main line.

Water in your basement can potentially harm your health because it can cause mould, bacteria, and viruses to form.

 

Bright Grass Near Your Drain Outputs


As strange as it may seem, having one part of your grass looking lusher than the other may be a sign that you are having a sewer line problem. This is especially true if the grass looks lush near your drain outputs.

This is because the sewage leak actually acts as a fertilizer to the grass. Your grass may look more beautiful than ever, but over time you will suffer damage to your health if you don't get the problem fixed.
