Partially Contructed Sewage Inspection Chamber

As snow melts on unseasonably warm winter days and throughout the spring, the risk of sewage backup increases considerably. If you detect strong sewage smells, hear gurgling sounds in your home’s plumbing, or discover wastewater rising up through your drains in the coming months, it may be due to a sewage backup.

If you suspect that a sewer line in or around your home is backed up, do not flush the toilet and try to use as little running water as possible until the problem has been attended to. If sewage in your area is the responsibility of a municipal body, call the sewer department to report the problem. If your home relies on a septic system for the treatment of wastewater, call your local plumbing professional.
