Sewage Backup

Top 3 Signs You've Got a Sewage Backup in Your Basement

A sewage backup is a nasty problem that no homeowner wants to deal with. Not only can sewage problems result in disgusting messes, flooding your basement and ruining everything in sight, but they also pose a health risk to you and your family. That’s why if you believe there’s even a chance you are dealing with a sewage backup, it’s always safer to call a professional plumber. Keep reading for the top 3 signs you’ve got a sewage backup in your basement, and make sure to call Roy’s Plumbing, Heating & Cooling for all your essential plumbing needs.

TheTop 3 Signs You've Got a Sewage Backup in Your Basement:

  1. Gurgling Sounds: Have you recently heard strange gurgling noises coming from your pipes or drains? These sounds may be a sign that water is not able to flow through your drain because of a sewage obstruction. Be sure to listen for gurgling in your home, and call a plumber right away if the issue persists.
  2. Toilet Clogs: Clogged toilets are a prime sign you’re dealing with a sewage backup, and should be dealt with immediately. First, check your toilet to find out whether water is backing up out of the drain or because of the plumbing. If it’s not coming from the plumbing, and you can’t get rid of the clog with a standard plunger, call a plumber ASAP.
  3. Blocked/Smelly Drains: Drain blockages are another prime sign that you’ve got a sewage backup on your hands, and may be accompanied by either of the above problems. If your drains are severely blocked, and there is a sewage smell wafting up from them as well, hire a plumber to determine whether a sewage backup is to blame.
