Sewer Line Leak

What Is Found In Raw Sewage?

Raw sewage typically consists of everything that leaves a building by any water drain – including toilet water. This means everything from human excrement, soaps, detergents, cleaning products, to food waste is considered sewage.

Sewage leaks are a serious problem. When these materials mix and react with the microorganisms that inhabit sewage, it can be hazardous.

Dangers Of A Sewer Line Leak

Dangers Of A Sewer Line Leak

Besides the odors and potential structural damages of a sewage overflow, it can pose serious health risks if not addressed immediately. Some of the risks include:

  • Sickness and disorientation when high doses of hydrogen sulfide are present.
  • Exposure to E-coli, salmonella, campylobacter, intestinal amoebas, shigella, and even cholera.
  • Lack of oxygen and asphyxiation caused by methane.

Signs Of A Sewer Line Leak at Your Property

Sewer leaks can occur for a number of reasons. Some warning signs that could potentially help you prevent leaks before they happen include:

Strange Sounds

The sound of constant running water (even after you’ve turned off your faucets) can be a sign of a potential sewage leak. Be sure to check the running water of your toilets as well.

Damp Floor

Moist or wet-looking floors are another sign of sewer leakage. The plumbing network snakes through a building, and when it starts to seep water, it can damage interior flooring.

Unpleasant Odors

One of the telltale signs of sewage damage is the smell of mold, mildew, and waste. Leaking sewer lines foster an environment for bacterial growth, which can give off unpleasant odors.

High Water Costs

A simple overview of your water bill can also tell you if there’s a leaking problem. While costs tend to fluctuate normally, if you notice a huge spike in your bill, it wouldn’t hurt to check the sewer lines for a potential leak.
