When These Signs Occur, It's Time To Clean Out Your Main Sewer Line

Environmental Blog

The main sewer line in your home has a major responsibility. It's tasked with carting away the waste water that flows through your pipes so that the liquid can be transported to the sanitation center in your town or community. When the main sewer line is working properly you'll notice that you're able to flush the toilets and send water down your drains with ease. However, when the line becomes clogged it starts to show up as subtle signs that should not be ignored. If you notice any of these occurrences in your home, it's time to call in a skilled professional who can clean out your main sewer line right away:

Clogs Start To Show Up In Different Areas

If you have multiple bathrooms in your house it's important to pay attention to the condition of your toilets. While it's certainly quite normal for a single toilet to become clogged because of some errant object that found its way into the commode, all of the toilets shouldn't start to act up at once. When this happens, it's a clear sign that something definitely isn't right. The main sewer line could be the culprit.

Understand that all of the toilets and drains in your home lead down into the main sewer line. If there's a blockage on the line it's going to have an effect on everything. The actual effects could be different depending on which toilet you're using. For example, you might flush one toilet and find that the debris comes back up after you've done so. In another bathroom, all of the contents of the toilet bowl might go down, but you have to hold down the flushing level a lot longer than usual for this to happen.

Drainage Is Slower Than Ever

The water that you run into your sinks should immediately evacuate through the drain. There shouldn't be standing water there unless you have manually stopped up the drain so you can do things like wash the dishes. When the main sewer line is clogged up, you'll notice that the water doesn't go down the drain as readily as it once did. This is typically a telltale sign that your main sewer line needs to be cleaned out.

Don't let a main sewer line clog spiral out of control. The moment you start to observe these signs in your home, contact a plumbing company like Tierra Environmental & Industrial Services who can come in and fix the problem for you right away.

Saving Power Every Day

When I purchased a business a few years ago, I realized that one of the leading expenses every month was the power bill. I knew that I needed to do something to make things right, so I started focusing carefully on saving power each and every day. I wanted to make things right, so I worked with my team to see what they could do to make things right. Within a few months, we had reduced our consumption by almost a third, and it was really paying off. This blog is all about saving power every single day by doing small things.
