Signs of a Sewage Backup

Signs of a Sewage Backup

If you’re not yet aware, a sewage backup is when water is forced to push into your home through pipes from the sewage or drainage system, due to blockage, clogging or excessive water, for example in the rainy seasons. A sewage backup is an alarming situation, because it ultimately results in a host of hazardous threats and massive damage, and calls for immediate services provided by the experienced plumbers in Dubai.

Here are a few warning signs you may notice and take necessary steps before a sewage backup:

Drain emitting sewage-like odors

A drain is, obviously, meant to transport wastewater out and away from your house. If you notice a foul smell coming from the drains, or a consistently persisting odor of sewage inside your home, it might be a sign of a mainline sewage backup.

Bubbles coming up through drains and/or toilets

If bubbles keep coming up through your drains and toilets whenever you’re using them, it might be because the wastewater is unable to flow out through the drains the way it should. If this keeps happening persistently on a regular basis, the wastewater will ultimately start backing up, as it is unable to go anywhere else.

Slow draining across fixtures

Wastewater may be unable to pass through pipes, drains and sewage lines, leading to multiple drains that run slow. This will usually begin with drains at the lowest level of your home (e.g., basement), and gradually creep up the pipes and sewage lines. Hence, if you notice slow draining in your ground floor fixtures, it could be a sign of a sewage backup- so reach out to our knowledgeable plumbers in Dubai immediately.

Multiple drains clogged at once

If too many drains across your home are clogged at once, not allowing wastewater to pass through, it may be likely due to a sewage backup. This is similar to the slow drainage issues, and this, too, first originates in the lowest levels of pipes, drains and/or sewage system at your home, for example, the basement. Experienced plumbers should be called in immediately.

Cleanout pipe throwing out sewage

A cleanout pipe is a pipe with a cap, that provides direct access to the sewage line. If the sewage line starts backing up, wastewater is forced to push out through this cleanout pipe, which is often located in or outside the basement. Thus, if you notice such wastewater coming out of a pipe located in or around the basement, this is a clear sign of a sewage backup and requires immediate plumbers in Dubai for proper fixing.
