Residential Sewer Service in Waterloo
It doesn’t take a four-year apprenticeship to know how vital sewer mains and drains are to your Waterloo home. These lines are what transport waste away from your home. Still, even though their importance is obvious, they are often subjected to the out of sight, out of mind treatment because they literally are out of sight and therefore you can easily be forgiven for letting more urgent and visible aspects of your life take priority.
But when your sewer line starts acting up, that’s when you need to act fast and get in touch with DSL Mechanical. Slow water flow or full stoppages could because there’s grime, roots, grease or some other type of debris blocking the sewer from disposing of your waste. And because no homeowner wants waste backing up in their home, when you start to notice something is not quite right, contacting DSL Mechanical is the first step to getting your home right again.

Signs Your Sewer Line is Clogged
There are many different signs to be on the lookout to know that it’s not just a simple drain clog in your home and that it’s your sewer line. A sewer drain clog is a serious problem for any Waterloo home since if it’s allowed to sit or if it’s not treated properly, it can cause significant and permanent damage to your home and its foundation.
Here are some signs that your home requires a sewer cleaning or a sewer repair:
Slow Draining Sinks
One of the simplest ways to know if your sewer drain is clogged is by checking how quickly water drains in the sink. A clogged sewer drain will cause the sink to drain much slower than normal. If multiple sinks are draining abnormally slow, it is almost certain that the problem is in your sewer.
Multiple Fixtures are Clogged
If multiple fixtures in your home, i.e., toilets, sinks and bathtubs, are all backed up, it is very likely that your sewer is clogged and requires cleaning. Since toilets have the most direct path to the sewer, as well as the largest drain line, a sewer clog can cause multiple toilets in your house to back up.
Strange Fixture Behavior
Say you flush your toilet and all of sudden the bathtub starts backing up, it usually means that there is a problem with the sewer. For anything that you would consider unusual, such as the toilet bubbling when you’re running the sink, you should contact DSL Mechanical right away.
