Signs Your Main Sewer Line Is Clogged

Sign #1: Multiple backed-up drains

Check the following water fixtures:

  • Toilets
  • Sinks
  • Bathtubs
  • Showers

If more than one drain is slow moving, gurgling, smells bad or has water backing up, you most likely have a main sewer clog. And because every water fixture’s drain eventually connects to the main sewer line, a blockage in that main line will affect various drains in your home.

What Causes Sewer Pipe Cracks Or Sewer Main Breaks?

There are quite a few different situations that can cause cracked sewer pipes or broken sewer pipe lines including environmental issues, the pipe material, and other factors.

Here are just a few reasons why sewer pipes may crack or break, resulting in clogged drains:

  • Outdated materials, like clay and galvanized pipe, are much more likely to crack resulting in a clogged drain pipe from sewer cracks or breakage.
  • Tree roots, over time, can grow around your sewer pipes and eventually crack or break the sewer pipe. This can block the flow of water and at some point small cracks
    can become quite large and the sewer pipe will split.
  • Environmental issues: Small tremors in the earth or excessive rain can cause a shifting of the ground that can torque or crush the sewer line pipe resulting in clogged drains.
