  2. 2. Signs that Your Sewer Drain is Clogged A clogged drain can bring massive headache to any homeowner. Since the water could not pass through the pipes, it will all just come back up into the household plumbing and get stuck in the bathroom or kitchen, sometimes producing a really bad smell. If you suspect that you have a sewer drain clog, it is important to confirm this and clear it right away. If you need to call a professional drain cleaner, do so in order to help you unclog your drains using drain cleaning machines such as high pressure water jetters. There are several ways to verify a sewer drain clog. 1. Multiple blockages in the house – One obvious sign that your sewer drain is clogged is when more than one plumbing fixture have problem with water not passing through. While the toilets are the most affected by this problem, you will also notice the clogging of kitchen sinks and bathtubs at the same time. This will tell you that there is already a major problem with your sewer drain. 2. Strange reactions from fixtures – The next thing to look for when you suspect a sewer drain clog are any unexpected or unusual reactions when using plumbing fixtures. For example, when you flush the toilet, instead of the water going down, it goes back up and ever spills over the bathroom floor. Another example is trapped air in the plumbing system when you run the sink. 3. Drainage at the clean out -- If your house has a main line clean out, there is an additional way of verifying a sewer drain clog. Locate the clean out, and open it by either unscrewing or pulling to remove the cap. Check it for any waste or water that may be backing up, which should not be the case. If water is flowing up and out of the clean out or standing in the pipe, this confirms that you have a main line sewer stoppage.
  3. 3. Once you have verified that your sewer drain is indeed clogged, it is time to contact your local drain cleaning company to help you fix the problem. Never attempt to fix it using your simple home tools. The professionals will use more powerful machines such as high pressure water jetters and pipe location equipment to solve the problem.
