Sewer Drains: 3 Signs of a Clogged Drain, Norwalk, Connecticut

Your sewer drain is vital to the plumbing in your home, yet it’s easy to forget about because you can’t see it. Most people don’t think about the consequences or even the possibility of a clogged drain until it occurs. But what happens when your sewer drain is clogged? Here are the signs, as outlined by the experts.

3 Signs of a Clogged Drain in Your Home’s Sewer Line

1. Several Clogged Drains in Your Home

One clogged drain in a toilet or sink isn’t necessarily cause for alarm, but if you notice several plumbing fixtures are clogged, you might have a sewer drain issue. Avoid flushing anything that isn’t toilet paper, and be mindful of the food and oils you put down your sink.

2. Gurgling Noises

clogged drainBubbling or gurgling noises coming from the drains in your home is a common sign of a sewer drain clog. This is caused by pockets of air in the clog that sometimes burst and release air. Try using a plunger first, and avoid pouring chemicals down your drain. Chemicals can damage your pipes and create fumes. If you can’t clear a clog manually, you should call a plumber.

3. Overflow Into Other Fixtures

If you flush your toilet and water appears in your tub or shower, you could have a sewer drain clog. You may also see this when you run the washing machine or turn on your bathroom sink. You should call a plumber immediately if you notice this. A branch could be blocking your sewer line.

No one wants to experience a clogged drain, but you can prevent serious problems by having professional video inspections and drain cleanings. Be sure to check with your city before you call a drain cleaning service to make sure it’s your responsibility.
