3 Signs It's Time To Replace Your Sewer Line

At one point or another in every homeowner’s life, sewer problems will happen.  It’s a simple fact of life.  If your sewer line needs to be replaced, you’ll know very quickly.  It’s usually because something fairly unsanitary and unpleasant happens.  You’ll want to call your local sewer line repair company as far as possible if:

 

1. Sewage backs up into your house.

This is the most obvious sign that something’s gone wrong with your sewer line.  Maybe your line is choked with tree roots, maybe it’s old, maybe it’s just plain persnickety—it doesn’t really matter what the reason is, because the end result is always going to be the same:  Your home is on its way to becoming a toxic waste dump!  If this happens, then call a plumber immediately.  This is not a project you can do yourself.

 

2. There’s a mysterious stench outside your house.

If your kids don’t want to play outside anymore because the lawn stinks, then we’ve got some bad news for you: Your sewer line is probably failing.

 

3. Your drains gurgle and refuse to empty.

Sometimes drains take forever to drain or make weird gurgling sounds because they’re chock full of strange substances; this is why it’s important to inspect—and clean—your drains on a regular basis.  If you’ve taken a look at every drain in the house and there isn’t a single one that’s clogged with hair or other unsavory things, then in all probability, a faulty sewer line is likely the culprit.  These symptoms aren’t nearly as dramatic as the first two, but that doesn’t mean your should ignore them.  Just thank your lucky stars that you caught the issue before things got nasty.

Backflow Preventer: 3 Reasons Why You Need One Installed in Your Home

Toilet Cleaning with a Plunger.

A backflow preventer is exactly what it sounds like: It prevents contaminated or polluted water from flowing back into a clean water source.  Many businesses are obligated by law to install and maintain backflow preventers, but it’s not always required of residential property owners.  So why should you have it done?  Well, here are three excellent reasons:

 1. You’re relying on a private source of water.

If your water is coming from a well instead of a public water source, then you definitely need to get a backflow preventer installed.  You definitely don’t want the sewage from your bathrooms or the water from a gardening irrigation system getting into your well.  Speaking of which, here comes our second reason.

 2. You have an in-ground irrigation system.

Irrigation systems are great, especially when the weather’s hot and dry and you’d like to keep your garden from dying.  But if you’ve got in-ground sprinklers, then you’re definitely going to need a backflow preventer whether you’re hooked up to the public water system or not. No one wants to drink grass clippings!

 3. You’re the only one who knows what’s on your property.

Public water sources do their best, but no one knows exactly what’s on your property and what it’s hooked up to, except for you.  If you’ve made significant additions to your home—additions that are hooked up to the water supply in some way—then it’s your responsibility to make sure that you installed as many backflow preventers as necessary.

 If you need to have a backflow preventer installed, then you should get in touch with the experts at All Plumbing, Inc.  All Plumbing can help you sort through your backflow issues and take care of other plumbing problems; after all, our plumbers have experience with water main and sewer line repair, as well as hydrojetting and drain cleaning.  For more information, visit our website or call (703) 525-7973 today.

4 Tips for Taking Care of Your Pipes so They Take Care of You

Kitchen sink

Plumbing repairs are usually the most dreaded of all home repairs, probably because they’re so often preceded by noxious odors and substances.  The best way to avoid the pain and sorrow of replacing your sewer line—to name just one example—is to take excellent care of your pipes.  Because you can see so little of your pipes, though, our advice concerns the part of your plumbing that’s easily viewed: your drains.

 1. Inspect your drains.

The best way to take care of your pipes is to make sure that they’re as free of debris as possible: To that end, you’re going to have to inspect your drains.  You probably won’t be able to see very far down the pipe, but you usually don’t have to; as long as you visually check the area nearest the drain for material, you’ll be fine.

 2. Trap your drains.

Cleaning out clogs is no fun; being forced to call in a plumber because a simple clog has morphed into something worse is even less fun.  To avoid both scenarios, you need to make sure that your drains are well-guarded so that your pipes remain well-protected.  Buy a guard for every shower, and find one for the kitchen sink, too: They look like tiny spaghetti strainers and will catch food while you’re doing the dishes.

 3. Don’t poison your drains.

Many people are under the mistaken impression that every clog can be cured with enough chemical drain cleaner.  Try to avoid those cleaners as much as possible; either they’re ineffective and a waste of money, or they’re too effective and will damage your pipes.

 4. Clean your drains.

You should be cleaning your kitchen drain at least once a week, your bathroom drains every time you clean your shower (about once a week, we hope), and your basement drains roughly every three months.  As we said before, don’t use chemical drain cleaners.  Instead, manually remove whatever you can and then run a combination of hot water, vinegar, and baking soda down the drain.

Hydro-Jetting VS. Cable Cleaning

We use this powerful piece of equipment because we know traditional snaking will only puncture the build-up, causing the problem to reoccur within months
