Drain clogs don't happen overnight. Usually there are clear signs your main drain line needs a cleaning. If you know what to watch for, you can prevent a sewer line clog from causing major plumbing issues in your home.
Signs You Have a Clogged Drain Line
Gurgling Toilet. If your toilet makes a gurgling sound after flushing or drains slowly, it's a sign that your sewer line has a clog.
Backed Up Bathtub or Shower. If water backs up into your shower, then your main drain needs to be cleared. Water may also back up into your shower when the toilet is flushed or you run water through the bathroom sink.
Unpleasant Smells. One of the clearest signs of a main drain clog is a raw sewage smell.
Tree roots are often the cause of drain clogs, especially in older homes. Foreign objects including diapers, baby wipes, feminine hygiene products, grease, and hair (especially from pets) are also common causes for stopped up drains. To prevent plumbing issues, it's recommended not to use the toilet as a trashcan. Only toilet paper should be flushed, not paper towels, dental floss or other manmade items.
