A cracked or broken sewer main can be one of the most troublesome plumbing issues you will face in your home. Not only is it your source for acquiring running water from the city plumbing to your home, but a sewer main in proper condition will reflect in your home’s plumbing. From backed-up toilets and sinks to sewer smells to standing water in your front yard, an impacted sewer main is a larger plumbing problem than needing a simple drain cleaning. Fortunately for the residents in the Seattle area, the team here at Action Jackson Plumbing has run into our fair share of sewer main issues, and we are more than equipped to help.

While these are only some of the noticeable issues caused by a damaged or faulty sewer main pipe, they are telltale signs that worse days are on the horizon if something is not done immediately. If you notice any of these, it’s time to call the team at Action Jackson.
