Your main drain is the biggest pipe leaving the house.
These are the smaller interior pipes that connect fixtures such as your sink, toilet, and bathtub to the main drain line.
Secondary Drain - Clogs in kitchen or bathroom sink only
Secondary Drain - 2nd-floor clogs with plumbing fixtures below
Main Drain (almost always) - Multiple clogged drains in the basement
Main Drain (almost always) - Running water from all other locations in the house makes the backup worse
Main Drain - The water backing up is smelly and not clear
Main Drain Likely - You have frequent backups
The following symptoms are red flags that you may have a clog in your main sewer line.
1.) Slow flowing drains
2.) Gurgling noises from your toilet bowl
3.) Water backing up out of a kitchen sink, shower, or tub
4.) Water backing up when the washer is used
5.) Water backing up from the drain in your basement (In this instance, the water usually smells unpleasant, and you can visibly see toilet paper.)
These issues may indicate that your sewer line is blocked by debris, tree roots, or a damaged pipe. Give us a call and we will send one of our expert drain technicians to determine the source of your clog.
