What Are Some Common Causes For Sewage Backup in Overland Park?
When we think of a sewage backup problem, we think of our toilets overflowing from a clog, and while it’s true that that clogs can backup your sewage or septic system there are a number of ways your sewage system can back up. There are two main types of sewage backups: Drain line clogs & sewer main clogs. Every sink, toilet, and appliance that drains water is hooked up to a drain line. Each of those drain line connects to the sewer main, which then connects to the city sewage system or a septic system.
Drain Line Backups:
A drain line backup can be diagnosed because only one room in your home is experiencing a backup. For example, in one bathroom the sink wont train and the toilet is overflowing, but all of the other plumbing in your home is working well. These backups are usually caused by flushing the wrong things down your toilet or build up of junk over time clogging the lines. Drain line clogs are easier to fix and usually the cleanup process is usually shorter.
Sewer Main Backups:
You can usually tell you have a sewer main clog if all of the drains in your property aren’t working properly. You might notice that you flush one toilet and all of the toilets in your home start to overflow. A sewage main backup can a problem with your main line being clogged or the the sewage line that is run by the city being clogged. This can happen when there are heavy rains that overwhelm the system, tree lines growing through your line, sump pump failures, or other blockages to the main sewage line. Depending on where and why the line is blocked, the repair process may be the homeowner’s or the city’s responsibility.
