Septic Tank Clog Removalseptic tank clog

Depending on the type of clog you have, using the plunger may not be the quick and easy solution. Septic tank drain clogs need to be handled by plumbing professionals. There can be varying reasons why the clog occurred and it can be difficult to detect to the untrained eye. Septic backups can be from a clog in the drain lines running to the septic system, or it could be the septic tank filter is clogged. Some of the most common symptoms of a backed up septic system are odors (gas smell), a gurgling sound when flushing the toilet or wet spots around the septic system.

Sewer Drain Clog Removal

A sewer drain clog can end up being a serious plumbing emergency. When water has nowhere else to go, it will come back up the plumbing in some way. One way of telling your sewer drain is clogged is that more than one of your plumbing fixtures are backed up at the same time. Toilets are usually the first to be affected, followed by the bathtub or shower. There are a few “tests” to see if you have a sewer drain clog. One sign is if the toilet starts to back up after flushing, or it causes a back up in the shower/bathtub. Another is when the sink closest to the toilet is on and running, the toilet water begins to bubble or its levels lower and rise. Sewer drain clogs are a serious matter and must be taken care of by a plumbing expert.
