How to Unclog a Leaking Sewage System

It’s hard to imagine what it will be like to have to walk around the house while your plumbing system begins leaking. But what would a person do?

The first step is to make sure your system is leaking, not you! To begin, you’ll want to clean your drain and pipe system. This is easy when your sewer pipe is in. Simply plug the drain. Alternatively, you can use a toilet plug or a toilet paper tube on a toilet that can take it and attach it to the toilet.

If you have a sewage system that depends on an underground pipe system, then simply attach your sewage piping to the sewer pipe using a sewer hose plug. 

After you’ve completed the leak check, move on to the next step: unclog the leakage. The easiest and fastest way is to turn the water off in the home and allow the system to drain through the drain before turning the water back on.
