How Do You Know if Your Main Line is Clogged?

You may have heard the terms "main line" and "main sewer line" and thought, what's the difference? Simply stated, the main line for your home connects your home's septic system to either a septic tank, or a municipal connection, (city provided water source). This means that every inch of water that runs through your home goes through this "main line", also called the "main sewer line".  They are one and the same! This is why it is so important to schedule routine maintenance for this system!

Sewer lines should be cleaned once every 18-22 months depending on the age of the system and previous repair history. Some of the main signs to look out for when trying to determine if you need to contact your local, expert plumbers are ...

  • Toilet water starts to bubble, hiss or whistle
  • Gurgling noises as toilet flushes or shower/tub water drains
  • Multiple clogged fixtures
  • Water damage found on ceiling or walls 
  • Discolored water from faucets
  • Frequent drain back ups
