If your sewer line is blocked or damaged for any reason any wastewater from your home is unable to reach the main sewer network. It has only one place to go and that’s back in your home. Most of us have experienced clogs in our pipework when our sinks, bathtubs, and showers take longer and longer to drain. If there is a problem with the sewer line all these will all likely have standing water in them. You may even see discolored water gurgling back into the sink, with a strong smell of sewage.
This is a serious health problem, and you need an emergency plumbing repair. Call Peach Plumbing as we have a technician fully equipped to locate the source of any blockage or damage.

If you have been flushing unsuitable materials down the toilet, like wet wipes, Kleenex tissues, or sanity towels, it should come as no surprise that blockages occur. We at Peach advise that you should only flush water, toilet paper, human waste, or gentle cleaners down the toilet. Other materials cannot dissolve easily in water and will cause a blockage if not flushed away quickly.
If your toilet is overflowing, please do not attempt to clean this mess up yourself, as you run the risk of serious infection. Our technicians carry protective clothing to keep them safe from all germs and bacteria.
