  • Sewage backup

    Is it not unusual for a house that has been vacant for 3 yrs to drain slowly and backup?

    Crud drys up in the lines and get hard & if the line had roots in it they will keep searching for their old water supply.
    So your answer is No its not

        that is the most common stoppage when the house sits empty.

        picture when a beaver is building a dam and no boaters are going by to destroy the dam.

        the beaver/ roots had a 3 year head start.

        also low flow toilets that don't flush out the waste to the city main. the waste will harden and create the start of a stoppage.

        without a track record of the house, system, just snake it and see what you find. roots are very common out here.

        phoebe it is
