What Causes Sewer Backups?

There are many potential causes of a backed-up sewer:

  • Clogs: Any foreign objects can clog a sewer line, preventing wastewater from flowing to the local sewer system and causing sewage to back up into your home.
  • Tree root infiltration: Tree roots that grow into cracked or vulnerable sewer lines create a blockage and cause a sewage backup.
  • Damaged sewer lines: As sewer lines age, they begin to develop sags, cracks, breaks, or misalignments.
  • Heavy rains and floods: City sewage lines can be inundated with water when it rains. When these lines can’t take in more water, sewage can start backing up in homes.

Whatever the cause, we’re ready to help! Call (904) 605-8190 or contact us online today!

Signs of Sewer Backups

Sewer line backups are accompanied by unpleasant symptoms, including:

  • Bad smells coming from your drains
  • Standing water in a drain pipe
  • Slow drainage or clogs in multiple drains
  • Toilet problems that persist even after plunging
  • Wastewater backups in floor drains, especially in low areas of your home like a basement
  • One plumbing fixture acting up while you’re using another (like wastewater in a tub that backs up when you’re using a sink)

If any of these signs are familiar, contact us right away! Call (904) 605-8190 for Jacksonville sewer backup service.

How to Prevent Sewer Line Backups

The best way to fix a sewer line problem is to never have a problem in the first place. To lower your risk of clogs and backups, follow these tips for prevention:

  • Properly dispose of waste: Don’t put grease, paper products, debris, or foreign objects in your drains.
  • Properly maintain your plumbing system: Routine sewer drain cleaning helps prevent clogs and other issues that often lead to sewer backup.
  • Install a backwater valve: This backflow prevention device can stop outbound water from flowing back into a home, even if the sewer line fails.
  • Replace old sewer lines before they fail: The sewer lines most likely to fail are more than 25 years old and made of clay, cast iron, or Orangeburg. Save yourself the future headache by proactively replacing old sewer lines before a sewer break.
