Signs of a developing backup include:
•Slow Draining Sinks
•Continuous Sewage Smell
The vast majority of the time, the backup is with the private line. If you call the City out first, we’ll verify if the private line is blocked so you can get it fixed before it becomes a bigger issue.
Be sure your homeowner’s insurance policy covers damage due to a sewer backup. Even if a backup is due to a blocked City main, the City may not be liable for damages.
