If you suspect you need a sewer repair or replacement, the first thing you may notice is a backup in the lowest plumbing fixture in the home, usually a basement toilet, shower, or utility sink. If your home does not have a basement, you may see it in the bathroom closest to where your sewage leaves your home.
You may have noticeable sewage backup in your home or yard which indicates a sewer line problem. But sometimes symptoms like a gurgling toilet or slow draining bathtub are not so obvious. These signs do not always mean that the sewer needs to be replaced, it might just need some repairs.
