Sewer Line Clog Repair in Panama City & Pensacola

Sewer Repair & Clearing in the Florida Panhandle

Your home’s drains carry wastewater to the sewer line. Sometimes, you can fix drain clogs on your own as they usually affect one area, such as the kitchen sink, shower, etc., but it’s not always that simple.

Your sewer line is a network of underground pipes. These pipes carry wastewater to a disposal site or treatment plant. If your kitchen sink gurgles when a shower is running or a toilet is flushed, that’s a sign you may have a sewer line clog that needs attention from a professional.

Call 855-557-7878 or contact Peaden Air Conditioning, Plumbing & Electrical with questions about your plumbing, drains, and sewer lines in the Florida Panhandle and Alabama Gulf Coast.

Signs Your Sewer is Clogged

Signs You Have a Sewer Line Clog

Sewer lines have a life span, and older plumbing may be made of materials we don’t recommend today. If your house was built in the 1970s or earlier, it might be time to replace your sewer line.

Signs you may have a sewer line problem include:

  • Bad smells inside and around your house
  • Flies or signs of rats and mice
  • Green or lush lawn spots for no reason
  • Gurgling or backed-up toilets
  • Mold on walls
  • Outside puddles or mushy spots on the lawn
  • Slow or no drainage

Common Causes of Sewer Line Clogs

Common Causes of Sewer Line Clogs

A sewer line clog is not only inconvenient; it’s a health hazard. Don’t delay seeking help if you have a clogged sewer line.

Causes can stem from:

  • Bathroom waste: “Flushable” wipes aren’t actually flushable.
  • Damaged sewer lines
  • Flooding and excessive rainfall
  • Food and kitchen waste
  • Grease: Never pour grease down any drain.
  • Leaking joints and pipe seals
  • Main line (city/sanitary) backups
  • Pipe corrosion
  • Shifting soil: This can create a sagging sewer line.
  • Tree roots

Why You Should Call Peaden for Sewer Line Problems

Why You Should Call Peaden for Sewer Line Problems

Sewer line repair is more than digging in your yard. Peaden plumbers understand soil conditions, underground utility line locations, and we have the right equipment for your specific sewer line project.

We’re not joking when we say do-overs cost more than if we’d handled your sewer line project from the start. What started as a leak can become a sewage backup that affects your neighbors. Your insurance company can also refuse to cover property damages resulting from your DIY sewer line repairs.

Sewer lines are often connected to municipal water lines. Ordinances and code requirements for your city and county can vary, so you may need a permit. But don’t worry, Peaden can handle all the logistics.

Contact Peaden Air Conditioning, Plumbing, & Electrical before you begin a sewer line project. We’ll make it as affordable as possible. We guarantee we’ll get the job done safely as quickly as we can and leave your plumbing better than we found it.

DIY: What You Can Do To Avoid Sewer Line Clogs

Taking care not to clog your sewer lines begins at home. Consider using an enzyme cleaner every month to keep sewer lines clean and clear.

Never flush:

  • Bandages
  • Cigarette butts
  • Cotton swabs
  • Disposable diapers
  • Feminine hygiene products
  • Food
  • Hair
  • Paper towels
  • Prescription drugs
  • Toxic chemicals/liquids
  • Wipes — even if the label says it’s “flushable”

Sewer Line Clog FAQs


Some of the frequently asked questions we receive about sewer line clogs include:

Can I unclog a drain myself?

Not a sewer line clog. Our Peaden plumbing pros use sewer jetting equipment for difficult sewer clogs. But if you have one clogged drain, a DIY fix is worth a try.

I never flush anything I’m not supposed to, but I have a sewer clog. Why?

Sewer line clogs occur for many reasons. Many times, damaged sewer lines are due to age, shifting soil, and tree roots.

When should I replace my sewer line?

Occasional repairs or replacements may be necessary before you need to replace your sewer lines completely. If your sewer has no problems, it should serve your property for 50 to 100 years.

Even a small drain or sewer clog is a health hazard that can damage your property. Call 855-557-7878 or contact Peaden for sewer line issues.
