What Are the Signs of Sewer Line Failure in San Diego?
Most people don’t notice a problem with a sewer line until it is too late. That’s when an extensive repair often becomes necessary, restoring the property and home to its previous state. Since this issue could qualify as a flooding event, it might not be covered by a standard homeowner’s policy.
The primary symptom that people notice with a sewer line break is that their yard and house start smelling foul. Since a sewer line could be up to six feet underground, it might take time for it to pool water and waste that seeps up through the soil. Most people can smell the sewage gas before they see water damage.
Some properties can experience draining difficulties when the sewer line fails. This issue probably isn’t present if you see a single toilet or sink slowing. Every fixture in your home will have the same problem simultaneously.
Water damage can also happen if the drain line breaks or leaks underneath a home. One of the first signs people see with minor sewer issues is mold or mildew spreading along the floors and walls. If it looks like the problem can get traced to an origin point, you’ll want to call Drain Rooter immediately to get the repair started.
