Trenchless Sewer Repair Can Fix These Plumbing Problems

Trenchless sewer repair is a reliable alternative to traditional sewer repair techniques that were much more costly and invasive. With trenchless sewer repair, your plumber no longer has to dig up wide swaths of your landscaping in order to access your sewer lines. Instead, through a small opening, your plumber can locate and repair leaks and even replace your entire line if necessary. Here is a look at just a few of the plumbing problems that can be fixed with trenchless sewer repair.

Bad Odors

A telltale sign of a sewer problem is a foul stench emanating from your drains. When a sewer line is clogged, either by a tree root or debris, sewer gas goes up the pipes in the wrong direction—which means it goes up into your drains. Don’t ignore these foul odors, as, over time, the sewer could send wastewater back up your drains as well. Keep an ear out for gurgling sounds that accompany the odor—these sounds can indicate that gas is building up in the p-trap of the drain.

Clogged Drains

Drain clogs aren’t uncommon, especially when they happen in one drain. When all of your drains start clogging at once, including drains that don’t get a lot of use, then your sewer could be the culprit. It is especially suspicious if the drains on the lower level of your home start clogging repeatedly. They are the closest to your sewer line and may be first to show the signs.

Unexpected Fixture Behavior

There shouldn’t be any mystery in how your plumbing fixtures work. For example, when you flush your toilet, the water and waste should leave the bowl, which should refill with water. If water bubbles up in your sink after you flush, or some other odd behavior occurs, the sewer line may be the problem.

Ace Plumbing is pleased to offer trenchless sewer repair in Sacramento to help you get the service you need without destroying your landscaping. If you suspect you have a sewer problem, call a plumber today at (916) 455-4548.

The Watery History of Ancient Rome & Its Remarkable Plumbers

When you call your plumber today, there is a good chance that ancient Rome is not on your mind. However, the work that today’s plumbers do is inspired by the astonishingly advanced plumbing that existed in Rome. Although historians and scientists are just scratching the surface of the roots of the plumbing system in Rome, what they have learned is remarkable.

Running water was a norm in ancient Rome.

Most people don’t think of running water existing in the ancient world, but Rome was anything but primitive. Most people in the city of Rome and in many locations throughout the empire had running water in their homes as well as a complex sewer system for moving away waste. Wealthy residents of Rome even had hot and cold running water in their homes. It is believed that the plumbing system in Rome was capable of bringing fresh water to homes from hundreds of miles away.

Lead pipes were at the center of Rome’s plumbing.

Rome relied on lead pipes to create their plumbing system. Once plumbers realized the potential of lead piping, the plumbing infrastructure expanded dramatically. Scientists have confirmed the use of lead in Rome’s pipes by testing soil in the waters in which Rome’s plumbing system is believed to have emptied. The sediment level that is congruent with the time of Rome’s empire contains lead from pipe runoff. Although some people speculate that lead poisoning was the trigger for the fall of Rome and that the runoff killed a large amount of marine life, there is little evidence to back up these claims.

Plumbing is a sign of Rome’s power.

The fact that Rome was able to conceive and build such a complex plumbing system is indicative of its unmatched wealth and power. Rome had to get the lead for its pipes from modern-day France, Germany, Spain, and England, which demonstrates its purchasing power, and the Empire’s ability to build and maintain the expensive system shows its wealth.

What You Can Do To Improve Your Home's Indoor Air Quality [INFOGRAPHIC]

Most Americans spend more time in their own home than anywhere else. Indoor air quality is often worse than the allergens found outdoors. Here's what you can do to improve your home's indoor Air Quality.

June 22 is National HVAC Tech Day

With the temperature rising here in Sacramento, June 22 is the perfect day to celebrate heating, ventilation and air conditioning technicians. In honor of National HVAC Tech Day, Ace Plumbing would like to take a moment to recognize our hardworking staff who make indoor comfort a reality for each of our customers.

HVAC: A Modern Technology

It’s easy to take central heating and air conditioning for granted, but this contemporary invention has only been around for about a century, and it’s only been widely adopted in the last 50 years. In fact, the arrival of residential air conditioning shaped the growth of our nation, leading to the development of cities across the Sun Belt in the 1960s where triple-digit summer highs once made it unbearable to live there.

Why Should We Appreciate HVAC Technicians?

Recent advancements in thermostat technology and equipment performance give homeowners access to more efficient home comfort than ever before. And who is it that keeps our heating and cooling systems running day and night? That’s right – HVAC technicians. Let’s show them a little love!

After all, extreme conditions are typical for HVAC heroes. When your home comfort equipment breaks down, you might have to last a few hours without heating or cooling until the tech arrives.

But imagine the worker’s job, traveling from house to house fixing malfunctioning equipment all day long. These tireless techs brave swelteringly hot attics and freezing cold crawlspaces every day of the week on their quest to restore your comfort!

Plus, every HVAC tech’s goal is to help you save money. During inspections, maintenance and repairs, technicians are eager to provide energy-saving tips. They propose specific thermostat settings, suggest ways to prevent energy waste and recommend zoning if your home needs it.

When the time comes to replace your equipment, they even help you select an HVAC system of the perfect size and efficiency rating. Services from a knowledgeable HVAC tech keep you comfortable with more money in your pocket at the end of the day.

How to Observe National HVAC Tech Day

Celebrate this day with us and show your appreciation for HVAC technicians everywhere by using #NationalHVACTechDay on social media. Then, contact Ace Plumbing at (916) 455-4548 to schedule heating and cooling maintenance or repair in Sacramento from one of our fine HVAC technicians.

Is Hot Water Necessary for Laundry?

Readily available hot water is one of the many conveniences taken for granted by modern society. But despite its availability, it’s still important to be mindful about your usage. Moderating your usage of hot water can help keep your energy bills low and reduce your footprint on the Earth. Contrary to popular belief, plumbing experts say it usually isn’t necessary to use hot water for your laundry.

Modern detergents do an excellent job of removing dirt and grime from clothing without the aid of hot water. This is good news for your clothes, which respond to hot water by shrinking and fading. There are a few exceptions, however. You should still use hot water if a family member has severe allergies (like dust mites), if the household has had a flea or bed bug infestation, or if a family member has a contagious illness.
