Whether you are going to be leaving your home for a few days or you are planning on hosting friends and family at your home for the holidays – it is important to make sure that your plumbing system is in good shape.
This means a variety of things but most importantly it means making sure to avoid a major plumbing or sewer line disaster.
Thankfully, there are some signs that your plumbing system will show if there is trouble brewing. Keep an eye out for these signs of trouble so that you can call for a professional plumber right away:
There are several drains in your home that are clogged. If your kitchen sink clogs that is usually nothing to be alarmed about. However, if your kitchen sink, bathroom sinks, and the shower all clog at the same time … you have a much bigger problem and it is probably a clogged main sewer line.
When you flush the toilet, someone in another room of the house notices that the bathroom tub drain starts to gurgle with murky water. Since all of the drains in your home are configured to use the main sewer line – a problem with the line will translate into problems for more than one fixture
None of the toilets in your home are working properly. Your toilets are all connected with a clear line to the main sewer line. If there is something wrong with the line – it is near impossible for the toilets in your home to work properly. If all of the toilets in your home are acting funny – it is almost a definite problem with the main sewer line
Protect your home this winter from major plumbing disaster by keeping your eyes peeled for these signs of sewer line trouble. Call for a professional plumber right away if you notice any of these problems.
