• Your Guide to the Different Types of Water

    If you are like most people, you know that regular drain cleaning is important to keep your plumbing system in good shape and keep your home’s inhabitants healthy. But what are the different kinds of water that can back up, and how dangerous are they? What plumbers refer to as black water is the most threatening water as it has come into direct contact with fecal matter. Black water does not break down or decompose quickly and can contain harmful bacteria and pathogens. Gray water, on the other hand, has not come into contact with solid human waste. This means it can be more easily broken down and safely reabsorbed into a residential or commercial lawn. White water is usually created during bathing, cooking, and cleaning, and may contain soap, hair, and various oils.

  • Understanding Why Your Sewage System Is Backing Up

    A residential or commercial sewage backup can quickly become a serious plumbing emergency . In addition to threatening serious structural damage to your property, sewage backups pose major health risks and can quickly contaminate your living space with dangerous microorganisms. To understand why sewage systems back up in the first place, review this helpful guide to the plumbing problem.

    Community Drainage System
    Plumbing backups occur when sewage flows the wrong way from drains. The plumbing lines that lead out of your property are connected to a community network of underground pipes that carry all the raw waste from homes to a large wastewater treatment plan. The most common cause of a sewage system backup occurs when debris clog these pipes, but individual homeowners generally do not need to worry about issues with the community drainage system, as your municipal governing body will correct any problems before you notice an issue.

    Lateral Pipelines
    Another cause of backup is blocked lateral pipes that connect your house’s pipelines to the larger community network. Your home’s pipes carry away wastewater from your bathrooms plus drain-offs from your patio and garden. When your pipelines become clogged with debris, leaves, or tree roots, sewage backup can occur. To prevent matter from accumulating in your drains and pipes, try using plumber-approved chemicals or contact your professional plumbing service.

    Household Plumbing
    The third potential cause of a sewage system backup is clogged pipelines within a residence or business. This kind of clogging can lead to sewage back-up in a homeowner’s basement. Raw sewage has been linked to serious enteric diseases such as cryptosporidiosis, giardiasis, salmonellosis, and hepatitis A, so it’s important to hire a plumber for regular drain cleaning and hydrojetting.

    All Plumbing, Inc. provides much more than just general plumbing services to Arlington, Alexandria, and Fairfax homes and businesses.
