Residual Gas Odor

You may not easily detect the sewer line problems since they are present under the ground. A heavy gas odor is strong enough to detect the emerging problem in these lines. 

If there is any blockage in these drains, you can definitely smell a bad odor throughout your house. If you sense a strong odor, then your sewer line is definitely broken.

Clogged Drain

A breach or collapse may cause a leaky sewer line. However, a leak is sometimes caused by a tree root that has penetrated the pip. 

Some of those leaks are harder to detect than others, particularly in areas where the underground sewer line is buried. Although a leak in the sewer line is practically invisible, it may occur in warmer climates where very deep lines need not be buried.
