San Ramon, California Sewer Line Repair 

Buried in the soil underneath your home is a whole other section of your plumbing system. Most of us don’t think much about the plumbing that is buried underneath our house, because it is out of sight and out of mind. However, the arrangement of pipes, junctions, and valves under your home contains probably the most crucial part of your home’s entire plumbing system – the main sewer line.

All of the fixtures in your home connect to the main sewer line. This important piece of equipment is designed to divert used water and waste away from your home to the city sewer system where it can be properly treated and disposed of.

While the main sewer line might seem like it is very far away from the plumbing inside of your home, it is very much connected to each one of the fixtures in your house. In fact, any malfunction with the main sewer line will show up as a problem with your plumbing fixtures. 

For instance, some problems with your plumbing system that would indicate obvious problems with your sewer line include:

  • Unusual: If your plumbing system is doing things that are just plain strange, like the sink overflows when the toilet is flushed, this could indicate a problem with the main sewer line. Your plumbing system relies on a balance amount of pressure in the pipes to help move water and waste through and when there is an issue with the main sewer line this pressure is disrupted and will cause unusual behavior from your plumbing fixtures.
  • Toilets: The toilets in your home have the most direct connection to the main sewer line and therefore it is very unlikely that you can have properly working toilets when there is an issues with the main sewer line. If all of the toilets in your home are not flushing or working correctly, this could clearly indicate a main sewer line issue.
  • Clogs: The fixtures in your home drain to the main sewer line, therefore if there is an issue with the line, the fixtures will not work correctly. For instance, you might see several or all of the fixtures suddenly act clogged and begin to back up with gray water.

A malfunction in the main sewer line should always be addressed immediately and by a professional. The material that this line is designed to carry away from the house is not only food waste, but also human waste and therefore can quickly escalate to a plumbing emergency if there is damage to the pipe and leaking wastewater. Thankfully, the team at Absolute Plumbing and Drain has more than ten years of experience investigating and diagnosing sewer line malfunctions. One of the diagnostic tools that our team of licensed plumbers finds especially helpful is video camera inspection.

This process allows us to get a real-time video document exactly what the condition of the main sewer line is, and how best to proceed. A highly-skilled member of our team will feed a camera cable into the pipe and from the monitor above ground be able to see if there are any obstructions or breaks in the pipe. Whether you are dealing with a malfunction with your main sewer line or not, we recommend having your line video camera inspected on a regular basis to identify and address any areas of concern before they escalate to major and expensive breakdowns.
