Many times, drain clogs can be handled by homeowners or a helpful plumber. But what happens when a clog forms further into your drainage system?

You may be familiar with the individual drains that carry waste from your toilets, sinks, bathtubs and showers. All of these drain lines eventually merge together into a larger line that connects to the city’s sewage system or your septic tank.
This line is called the main drain line or the sewer line. If your wastewater manages to make its way to the main line, you’re still not out of the woods. Clogs and blockages can also form inside the main line, and the consequences can be much more serious.
Just because the sewer line is larger than the feeding drain lines doesn’t mean it can handle anything thrown down the drain. The same products that causes obstructions in your kitchen or bathroom drain can collect in larger quantities deeper in the plumbing system.
The problem is that these clogs are much harder to see and resolve. They require professional plumbing solutions to ensure the entire sewer line isn’t backed up. In addition, tree roots can cause your main line some real trouble. Since the line is located under your yard, roots can invade the pipe and block the flow of water and waste. To avoid a complete blockage, a special tool is needed to chop up those roots and clear the passage.
The main difference between a simple drain clog and a main line clog is the number of fixtures and drains involved. A Frisco sewer line clog will usually affect multiple outlets like drains, toilets or tubs. If you see these symptoms throughout your home, you might have a sewer line clog:
If these symptoms appear, don’t waste any time. A sewage clog can become more serious extremely quickly. The last thing you want is sewage overflowing into your home or yard, so call on a professional plumber who can limit this damage.
Here at Earl’s Plumbing, we take main drain line clogs seriously. We use a special sewer line camera to locate the clog within the pipe. Once we can see what’s causing the obstruction, we can formulate a plan that will effectively restore the passageway. This may require a sewer snake to twist and dislodge the clog or other actions to be taken. We never leave until we’ve found a solution that works for your home, so you can count on us to take care of your sewer line clog.
