All about blocked sewer lines
Your sewer line consists of all the waste points that carry liquid and solid sewage off from your home out to the council connection point for treatment. At one time or another, one of these outlets can be blocked because of various reasons.
Some reasons, like excess toilet paper use, can be easily cleared by simply removing the blockage from the waste point or pouring a chemical drain cleaner down the drain. Others are more complex where you may need the help of a professional to clear the drain.
