If your toilet gurgles when you try to flush it, you may be looking at a clogged sewer drain. Most residences that use municipal water services have a single sewer line that runs from the structure to the street where it connects with the municipal sewer line. Residential sewer lines are seldom wider than four inches in diameter, so they’re easily clogged. The experienced technicians who work with Beyer Plumbing in San Antonio know how to deal with clogged drain lines safely and efficiently. We can also tackle all your other plumbing repair needs and fixture installations.
Signs of a Clogged Drain Line
When your main drain line is clogged, it often affects every plumbing fixture in your house. Plumbing fixtures on the ground floor close to the clog may be the first to be affected. Eventually, however, the backup will affect every drain in your house.
Since your toilets’ drainpipes connect directly to your home’s sewer line, this may be where you initially notice the problem. If your toilet begins making gurgling noises when you run water in a sink, you’re probably dealing with a sewer drain issue. Sometimes you’ll even notice that the water level in your toilet is rising when you run water in your sink or tub. Another common sign of a sewer pipe clog is the collection of wastewater within your shower or tub.
Dealing With a Clogged Drain Line
If you have a clogged sewer drain line, the wisest thing to do is to call an experienced plumber at Beyer Plumbing immediately. Even if you’re very handy with DIY tasks around your home, you shouldn’t try to fix a sewer clog. For one thing, the sewer line is in a spot that’s very difficult to reach. For another, the sewer line may be filled with wastewater that will spill over you as soon as you remove the clog. Wastewater is a serious health hazard.
