Signs of a developing back-up include:
•Slow Draining Sinks
•Continuous Sewage Smell
The vast majority of the time, the back-up 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. If there’s a problem with the City line, we should be able to fix it before sewage backs up into your house.
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.
