Similar issues can occur among any of your drains, so consider what is happening in your shower and tubs as well.

You smell sewage in or around your home: If you start to smell sewage, check for sinkholes in your yard. If found, you likely have an urgent problem with your sewer and should call a professional immediately.

You notice your lawn is constantly wet: It hasn’t rained in weeks but your lawn remains damp? Something strange is probably happening beneath the surface. Stop waiting for the yard to dry and start calling your plumber!
