  • Determining Whether Your Sewer Line is Clogged or Broken

    Everyone knows that their sewer line helps transport waste water from the home to underground sewer mains and treatment facilities. Other than that, most homeowners probably don’t think about what else goes on in their sewer lines. Unfortunately, taking this approach with your sewer line can be costly, especially if you fail to notice the signs of a developing sewer problem . To help you save money, and even possibly save your home, here are ways to determine whether your sewer line is clogged or broken, and what to do in either case.

    Signs of a Broken Sewer Pipe
    A broken sewer pipe may take weeks or even months to notice, but the signs are hard to miss. For example, if you see a puddle of water where your home’s sewer pipe connects to the municipal sewer pipe and it hasn’t rained in a few days, you may have a broken sewer pipe. Seeing or smelling raw sewage is also a sign that you may be dealing with a broken sewer pipe. To replace or repair damaged and failing sewer pipes, ask your plumbing company about trenchless sewer pipe technology. This method is much less invasive than traditional sewer pipe repair.  

    Signs of a Clogged Sewer Pipe
    A clogged sewer line can lead to raw sewage backup, which can in turn lead to significant damage to the home. The most common warning signs of a  clogged sewer pipe  are water backing up out of a drain or toilet, a gurgling sound coming from the drains, and slow draining sinks. If plungers and plumbing snakes don’t clear the debris, hire a plumbing service to clear your pipes using a hydro-jet. This method will quickly clear any clog from your sewer line.

    All Plumbing, Inc. offers  trenchless sewer pipe repairs  and hydro-jetting drain cleaning services for residential and commercial clients throughout Northern Virginia. If you live in Arlington or the surrounding area, call us at (703) 525-7973 to learn more about our plumbing services. 

  • Understanding How a Toilet Tank Works

    The toilet isn’t the most complex appliance in your home, and yet is probably one of the least understood. Generally speaking, a toilet operates on a very simple principle of gravity. When the tank is filled with water and the toilet is sitting idle, water rushes from the tank into the bowl when the tank is flushed, causing the contents of the bowl to empty. To learn more about how a toilet tank works, watch this short video clip.

    You don’t need to understand how your toilet works to keep it in tip top shape; you only need to call All Plumbing, Inc. We are Arlington’s preferred residential plumbing service . Contact us online or call us at (703) 525-7973 to schedule plumbing service for your home or business.

    Look for Signs of Water Damage
    Most homeowners use more water during the summer months, so be particularly diligent about spotting signs of water damage between now and the start of fall. Look underneath cabinets and around the base of each toilet for  signs of water damage . Not only can the resulting water damage be expensive to repair, but a leak can waste hundreds or even thousands of gallons of water until it is fixed by a plumber.

    Refresh Your Garbage Disposal
    You’ll probably do a lot more entertaining during the summer, which means more prepping and more cooking in the kitchen. That also generally means more waste down the garbage disposal. To keep your pipes clear and your kitchen smelling great, grind up ice cubes and lemon peels in the garbage disposal once a week during the summer months.

    Have Your Pipes Cleaned
    Between family visits and your children’s overnight guests, your bathrooms will get a lot more use during the summer. To make sure everything goes down and stays down, have your pipes cleaned by a plumbing company that uses hydro-jets. This is the fastest and most effective way to clear your pipes of debris, sludge, and other types of build-up.
