Unlike a city sewage system, a septic system needs to be maintained by the individual homeowner. A properly maintained septic system will protect the health of your family, the quality of your property, and the environment. To keep your septic system in proper working order, you should schedule a maintenance procedure every three to five years, or whenever the tank is filled up to 1/3 with solid materials. To learn all about septic system maintenance, watch this short video clip.

A clog in your home’s plumbing system can cause inconvenient and costly damages. To better understand whether your clog requires a simple home procedure or professional plumbing service, it is important to know the difference between a localized clog and a clog in your main sewer line. Here is a closer look at how to tell the difference between each type of clog:
Signs of a Clogged Drain
When you notice that your toilet or sink is taking longer than usual to drain water, there is a clog somewhere in your system. If only one faucet or fixture is backing up, the problem is a clogged drain rather than a clogged sewer line. You should be able to use a plunger or other simple drain clearing method to clear the blockage. If your at-home solution fails to clear the clog, you will need to call your plumber.
Signs of a Clogged Sewer Line
A clogged sewer line is a more serious situation than a clogged drain. When your sewer line is clogged, several appliances such as your tub, toilet, and sink will all back up at once. Appliances that are closest to the sewer line, such as your toilet and shower drain, will bubble with water. You might also notice a strange, foul smelling odor coming from one or more drain. When your sewer line is clogged, you need to call a professional plumber. Using sophisticated diagnostic tools, your plumber will locate the exact location of the clog and perform the necessary repairs.
If you need assistance dealing with a clogged drain or sewer line, call Ace Plumbing of Sacramento. Our friendly plumbing professionals will diagnose and repair your plumbing issues and get all of your drains working properly in no time.

Summer is just around the corner, and as the days heat up, now is the perfect time to prepare your home for warmer weather. Before the start of summer, it is important to schedule maintenance for the essential components of your cooling system. By making sure that everything is in great working order, you will ensure that you have cool air during the hottest days of the year. Here are some tips for transitioning into using your home’s cooling system this summer:
Service Your A/C
You should schedule a maintenance procedure for your home’s A/C system at least once every year. Having your air conditioner serviced before the start of the summer season will ensure that you have cool air in your home all summer long. The technician will check the outdoor compression unit, make sure that all of the elements are functioning properly, and make sure that nothing has been damaged over the winter.
Shut Off Your Furnace
During the hot summer months, you will not be using your furnace to heat your home. Even when your furnace is not being used, it consumes natural gas and electricity whenever it is left on. By turning off your furnace before the beginning of the summer, you will enjoy noticeable savings on your energy bills.
Change Your A/C Filters
The filtration system on your air conditioning system purifies the air in your home and prevents dust, debris, and other contaminants from entering your air supply. Before you begin using your A/C system all summer long, be sure to change the filters. If you would prefer a higher level of filtration, you can choose high efficiency filters. A/C filters should be changed at least four times a year.
