If you notice a gurgling sound in your toilet when water is running down a sink or tub drain, you may have a clogged sewer drain.
When you got up this morning, you were thinking about taking your bike for a leisurely ride on the Suncoast Trail. But that plan vanished when you went into the bathroom and found that, over night, your toilet and tub had backed up. Your first chore, of course, was cleaning the yucky mess. Your second task was finding a helpful plumber, like those at Billy the Sunshine Plumber, to fix the problem.
It sounds as if you have a sewer drain clog. Indications that you have one include backups in more than one plumbing fixture at one time.
A sewer drain clog happens when the sewer line between your home and the city’s system becomes plugged up. It then affects all drains in your home because nothing can get through the clog.
“Toilets are often the first fixture to experience problems, but any other low-lying fixture can also be involved, such as a shower or bathtub on the main level of your home,” according to thespruce.com. “Toilets have the most direct path to the main drain and use the biggest drain pipes of all of the fixtures, so this is often where problems appear first. You may notice that a toilet doesn’t flush properly, or that it gurgles when water is running down a sink, tub, or washing machine drain. This is a telltale sign of the main drain problem.”
Thespruce.com notes that sewer line clogs may be considered a plumbing emergency and a possible health hazard.
“Without a route to the main sewer system or septic field, wastewater may have nowhere to go but to back up into your fixtures or up through floor drains,” thespruce.com says. “When faced with a sewer line drain clog, you should not use any of the plumbing in the home until the stoppage is cleared out.”
