A backed up drain is more than a mere inconvenience. It’s a health hazard and a potential threat to the value of your home. When water backs up in the sink, shower or toilet and spills out onto the floor it carries with it the potential for bacterial contamination. It may also find its way into the floor and walls of your home where it can render insulation useless and damage electrical wiring. A backup of the main sanitary line between the house and the street can be even more catastrophic and must be addressed quickly and effectively.
Tell-tale Signs of Impending Drain Backup
Drain backup in Toronto homes can have long term consequences if not dealt with in time. Fortunately, looming drain backups whether local (a sink or shower etc) or general (the main line between house and street) often send out tell-tale warning signs beforehand. These include:
- The sink, shower or tub are not draining as quickly as they should. The toilet takes more than one flush to clear. If these are isolated events they may indicate a local blockage.
- You hear gurgling in your drains and/or the smell of sewage is emanating from different drains. This indicates a main sewer line backup.
- Water emerges from the shower or tub drain after flushing the toilet. This is a clear indication that there is trouble brewing in the main sewer line.
- Soapy water from the washing machine emerges from an unrelated drain like the bathtub or shower. Another sign of a main sewer line blockage.
