What Causes Sewer Backups?
Sewer Clogs: A clogged sewer mainline will prevent water from flowing to the sewer system causing sewage to back up. These clogs can be caused by anything from toilet paper, toys, or foreign objects.
Heavy Rain and Floods:City sewage lines can be inundated with water when it rains. When these lines simply can’t take in more water, sewage can start backing up in homes.
Damaged Sewer Lines: When sewer lines begin to sag, crack or broken clogs will easily occur. These problems are more likely to occur with age.
Tree Roots: Tree roots grow into cracked or vulnerable sewer lines, creating a blockage and causing a sewage backup.
For sewage backups created with a problem at the central underground sewer pipe, which typically is found beyond property lines, the municipality may be accountable for handling the improvements.
In all other cases, though, it’s normally each homeowner’s obligation to fix sewer line problems and backups. Some good news is that homeowners’ coverage may include damage caused by a sewer line backup.
Signs of Sewer Backups
Sewer line backups come with some very noticeable symptoms, including:
- Offensive smells coming from your drains
- Rising water in a drain pipe
- Slow drainage or clogs in multiple drains
- Toilet issues that happen even after plunging
- Sewage backups in floor drains, especially those in a basement and other low area of the home
- One plumbing fixture acting up while you’re using another, like sewage or wastewater in a tub that backs up when the toilet is flushed or you’re using a sink
If you have wastewater that backs up when you’re using a plumbing fixture in your home, contact MRC Plumbing Co. for plumbing rooter service.

How To Prevent Sewer Line Backups

Replace old sewer lines before they fail: Sewer lines that are more than 25 years old or clay, cast iron are more susceptible to failing. Replacing these types before they fail can save you a lot of headaches and money in the future.
Properly maintain your plumbing system: Routine drain cleaning can prevent clogs before they create a larger issue and led to a sewer backup.
