As we move into the winter months and get closer to the holiday, many people are gearing up for having friends and family over for a special meal and for hitting the road to visit loved ones.
Whether you are going to be leaving your home for a few days or you are planning on hosting friends and family at your home for the holidays – it is important to make sure that your plumbing system is in good shape.
This means a variety of things but most importantly it means making sure to avoid a major plumbing or sewer line disaster.
Thankfully, there are some signs that your plumbing system will show if there is trouble brewing. Keep an eye out for these signs of trouble so that you can call for a professional plumber right away:
There are several drains in your home that are clogged. If your kitchen sink clogs that is usually nothing to be alarmed about. However, if your kitchen sink, bathroom sinks, and the shower all clog at the same time … you have a much bigger problem and it is probably a clogged main sewer line.
When you flush the toilet, someone in another room of the house notices that the bathroom tub drain starts to gurgle with murky water. Since all of the drains in your home are configured to use the main sewer line – a problem with the line will translate into problems for more than one fixture
None of the toilets in your home are working properly. Your toilets are all connected with a clear line to the main sewer line. If there is something wrong with the line – it is near impossible for the toilets in your home to work properly. If all of the toilets in your home are acting funny – it is almost a definite problem with the main sewer line
Protect your home this winter from major plumbing disaster by keeping your eyes peeled for these signs of sewer line trouble. Call for a professional plumber right away if you notice any of these problems.

That makes sense to pay attention to if all your toilets are broken. That means there’s something wrong with the main line like you said. I’m a new homeowner so I’ll have to use all the tips you mention here.
I totally agree when you said that we should ensure that the plumbing system should be in good shape before we leave the house. This is a perfect reminder since we will be going away for the first week of 2019. We will be celebrating the week away from home for the New Year, so this will save us from having a flooded house while we are away.
Thank you for bringing up having multiple drains backed up in the house. My husband and I have been noticing this more and more as time goes on. We have been thinking it was a pretty serious problem, but we’ll be sure to address this issue right away now that we know.
My wife and I have noticed problems with our toilets. It is good to know that we should call for plumbing help. I hope that it would be a pretty easy fix.
Thanks for explaining that if all of your drains start to clog, then it might be time to call a plumber. I’ve noticed that my kitchen and bathroom sinks have been struggling to drain quickly, or even sometimes at all. Perhaps I’ll contact a plumber to take a look at my drains to see what needs to be fixed.
