    Signs of a Clogged Sewer Line

    Last updated 1 month ago

    Sacramento home and business owners who are connected to a municipal sewage treatment system depend on sewer lines to carry wastewater from their homes to the nearest sewage treatment plant. A clogged line prevents the smooth flow of wastewater from a home’s main sewer line to the city line and can result in sewage backup. If you detect any of the following unpleasant circumstances on your property, you may have a clogged sewer line and will need to contact a plumber as soon as possible.

    Sewage Backup

    The inevitable result of a clogged sewer line that is not repaired early enough, sewage backup is a clear indicator that there is a problem with your sewer main or a secondary sewer line in your home. If water seeps up through your bathtub drain after you flush the toilet or you hear a gurgling sound coming from drains in your home after running the dishwasher or washing machine, you should contact your plumber right away.

    Foul Smells

    If the putrid stench of raw sewage makes a presence in your home, it could be a sign of a clogged sewer line. Smells of raw sewage often accompany sewage backup, and typically come from the drains in the home.

    Slow-Draining Plumbing Fixtures

    If not one but several of the plumbing fixtures in your home start to drain more slowly than usual, it could be a sign of a clogged main sewer line. Inspect your drains and plumbing fixtures for signs that the drainage issues are caused by something other than sewage backup, and contact a plumber if you cannot find any or are unable to clear the drains on your own.

    If you suspect that your home’s sewer line is clogged, waste no time in contacting a plumbing professional who specializes in sewer repairs.

    • We called ACE at 11:30 on the evening of July 4th when tree roots had completely blocked our sewer line, and we had back flow into our bath tub. John arrived quickly, was friendly, efficient and fixed our problem in no time. We are very happy with the service and will certainly use them again when needed. Can't beat the price either.

    • The first positive plumbing service I've experienced in 40 years of home ownership. The technician, John, was prompt, professional, knowledgeable, honest, and hard-working. I was so encouraged by the first two jobs he did that I had him look at a toilet no one has been able to fix in 10 years. John fixed it in 5 minutes! The best serviceman... More

    Plumbing Maintenance Tips for Your Home

    Last updated 1 month ago

    Modern plumbing spares us from menial tasks and health hazards that were a daily part of the life hundreds of years ago. Still, our plumbing fixtures are subject to heavy use, and are not immune to failure. If you aspire to keep your home’s plumbing infrastructure in tip-top shape and keep plumbing problems at bay, follow this essential plumbing maintenance advice.

    Know Your Plumbing

    It may be said that knowledge is the best form of plumbing maintenance. Familiarize yourself with the intricacies of the plumbing fixtures, hardware, and infrastructure in your home. Know what material your pipes are made of and what problems they are most susceptible to. Understand what can and cannot go down the drains in your home and follow these dos and don’ts with fervor.

    Clean Drains Regularly

    No matter how effectively you manage to keep forbidden liquids and objects from making their way down your drains, dirt and grime will accumulate in your drain trap or pipes. To keep this build-up to a minimum, flush your drains out with boiling water, baking soda, and vinegar once a week.

    Attend to Problems Early

    As soon as you detect a leaking faucet, a change in water pressure or hot water heater performance, or funny sounds or smells coming from the drains and pipes in your home, contact your plumber. If it is a problem you know how to repair, do not put off doing so. If it will require the expertise of a professional plumber, schedule an appointment immediately.

    At Ace Plumbing in Sacramento, we have more than 40 years of experience carrying out plumbing and sewer repair services. If you are experiencing a plumbing problem and are looking to have a competent and licensed plumber whom you can trust attend to the problem, call Ace Plumbing at (916) 455-4548.
