If you begin to notice a percolating toilet and/or a slow draining drain, these are usually the first signs of a blockage in a sewer line. When a common pipe is clogged these backups normally happen on the main sewer line where all the drains lead to on a common street.
If all of your toilets don’t seem to be working at the same time, normally this is caused by a blockage in the main sewer line. You can prevent this by not utilizing your toilet as a garbage can. It is advised not to dump large amounts of waste down your garbage disposal, and to not pour grease down your drain, as these scenarios can harden the inside of your pipes and therefore cause a big sewer back up.
Even if there are no trees located directly above the sewer line at your home or business area, tree roots from a neighbor’s backyard could in fact cause a sewer problem at your house and on your street. Tree roots may grow into pipes and cause blockages or holes that can damage the main sewer line.
