What Does the Inside Main Sewer Line Do?

The inside main sewer line plays a key role in your home sewer system. This line transports wastewater and sewage from your home to the underground, municipal (city) sewer lines. Think of it as the backbone of your sewer connection.

Signs that Your Inside Main Line is Clogged

When there is a problem with the inside main line at your home, you’ll probably notice. A major clog can cause raw sewage to back up into your drains. This can lead to significant damage to your home.

Early Warning Signs:

  • Toilets that “percolate,” bubble or make noises when you’re finished with your washing machine. You’ll recognize the sound of a coffee pot percolating, except it’s coming from your bathroom. GROSS!
  • Water puddling around your basement drain. This can quickly become an emergency, so call the team at S.O.S immediately.

If you suspect a clog in your inside main line, shut off that line. Your sewer cleanout line is a round, white pipe with a rubber cap usually found at the rear of St. Paul and Minneapolis area homes. You can remove the cap during a backup so the pressure inside can be relieved. That will divert water to flow outside rather than in your home.

What if There is Water Damage to the Home Already?

If you come home from work or travel to find a flooded basement, raw sewage in your basement shower, or a hardcore sewer smell, call a Minneapolis / St. Paul area drain and sewer company immediately. Then, contact your homeowner’s insurance company. Homeowner’s insurance policies in Minnesota usually cover this type of damage.

While you mustn’t breathe sewer fumes, you can try to mitigate the damage to your home by opening windows and turning on fans upstairs. This will keep the air circulating and hopefully prevent mold and mildew from taking hold.

  • Take photos of the water and damage with your cell phone. Your homeowner’s insurance adjuster will want to see them.
  • Remember, don’t touch anything that’s soaked with sewer water! It can be contaminated with all sorts of infectious diseases.
