Is My Main Sewer Line Clogged?
Main sewer drains usually suffer clogs somewhere between your home and the street. And because backups begin at clogs then move up, your lowest drains will start experiencing symptoms first. Below are some common signs your main sewer line may be clogged.
- Several of your plumbing fixtures are clogged: your toilet is usually the first to show symptoms; it may start backing up. Other fixtures include your tub, shower, and washing machine.
- You’re experiencing slow draining
- Unpleasant odors are coming from your drains
- Your plumbing fixtures or drains are making odd sounds
What Do I Do if My Main Line is Clogged?
If you’ve noticed the signs of a clogged sewer line, it’s important that you do not flush your toilets or run any water. Adding water to the drainage system will only make the problem worse. You should shut off the main water supply to your home, then contact us at ARC Plumbing. We utilize special equipment like video inspection and motorized snakes so we’ll be able to accurately pinpoint the clog and properly treat it, quickly and effectively.

A clogged sewer line can significantly impact your home.
