Sewer Repair, Cleaning & Replacement Services For Your Chino, CA Home
Plumbing systems have a main water line that brings water into the home from a private well or municipal source. Plumbing systems also have a sewer line (or main drain line if you have a septic tank) that moves contaminated water and dissolved solids to the sewer system underground. When functioning properly, these advanced systems facilitate modern living and make it easy for us to cook, clean, bathe, and stay hydrated. When these systems malfunction, however, sometimes the result is messy and smelly.
For times like those, there's JIG Plumbing. We are a full-service plumbing company in Chino, CA, and can help you overcome your plumbing inconveniences with our sewer repair services. We also offer same-day plumbing services, so you can get the help you need whenever you need it. Speak with someone from our team right now - just call 909-280-4331 to learn how we can help.
How Do I Know If My Sewer Line Is Clogged, Cracked, Or Damaged?
Every drain, pipe, and plumbing fixture in your home is connected to the largest piece of plumbing on your entire property — the main sewer line. Flushing the wrong things and outside factors, such as tree root growth, freezing temperatures, corrosion, and excavation processes can cause your sewer lines to become damaged or clogged. Failing to address a malfunctioning sewer line can result in foul smells in the home, slow drainage, overflowing toilets, and a multitude of other unwelcome scenarios. If you notice some of the following signs (or participate in some of the following practices), there are chances that you need sewer repair.
- Pouring grease down the drain. While many fats are liquid when hot, they harden at room temperature. If you pour grease down the sink, much of it just sits coagulated in your pipes. With time, other debris accumulates onto the grease ball, causing major clogs.
- Flushing the wrong things down the toilet. Flushing things like tampons, baby wipes, napkins, hairballs, kitty litter, and other similar things can lead to sewer line clogs. Flush only toilet paper if you want to help your sewer line remain clog-free.
- Tree root infiltration. Tree roots are attracted to the warmth that emanates from your sewer lines. As they grow ever closer to your pipes, you run the risk of tree roots growing into your pipe as they seek out water. Roots that have grown into your home's plumbing system increase the likelihood of clogs and will eventually cause the pipe to collapse.
- Sagging sewer lines. Sewer lines begin sagging when a portion of the pipe has sunk deeper into the ground due to soil conditions.
- Corroded pipes. While steel and cast iron pipes are galvanized to prevent rusting, hard water, and the calcium and magnesium in it, can put your pipes at an increased risk of corrosion. Left untreated, corrosion can make pipes susceptible to cracks and leaks.
How Can I Tell If I Need To Clean My Sewer Lines?
You flush the toilet, and water comes up through your tub's drain. Then, you run your washing machine, and the kitchen sink starts to overflow. If these seemingly bizarre situations are happening in your home, you might be in need of sewer line cleaning. Water backing up in random places happens because a clog within the sewer line hinders wastewater from leaving the plumbing system. Since its flow is impeded, the water comes back up through your drains instead.
If problems are isolated to a specific drain or part of the home, drain cleaning services should suffice. However, if most parts of your plumbing system are operating inappropriately, it's likely that you have a clog somewhere in your sewer line. While cleaning a drain is relatively simple, cleaning a sewer line is a whole different beast. This type of plumbing repair is a complex undertaking, and it's best to hire professionals like those here at JIG Plumbing.
