Knowledgeable Plumbing Help in the East Valley & Surrounding Areas
Your sewer line plays an important part in the plumbing for your home or business. It’s a single pipe that gets waste out of the house and into the main municipal sewer system. Common spots for the sewer line are in the basement or outside, near the street.
A sewer line that doesn’t function properly can create short-term headaches in your life, and over time, can result in long-term problems for the health of yourself, your family, and your property. Our plumbers can help you identify problems and then get to work on fixing them.
The Warning Signs of a Damaged Sewer Line
Do you hear noise from the pipes when you run a dishwasher or do the laundry? Some noise isn’t necessarily a problem, but if there’s loud gurgling behind your walls, that isn’t normal, and it’s often a sign that the sewer line is not functioning properly. The pooling of water is another sign that it’s time for us to come out and take a look.
Perhaps you find yourself waiting a little bit longer to watch the sink drain or the toilet flush. Trying drain cleaner is a very reasonable first step, but if that doesn’t work, it might be time to check the sewer line.
Are you getting compliments from the neighbors on how beautifully green your lawn is looking? If that’s because of a concerted effort in lawn care, that’s great. If the lush green lawn seemed to appear out of nowhere, a cracked sewer line may be the cause.
Sewer line issues may also contribute to higher water bills and property damage.

The sewer line problem that property owners can exert the most direct control over is:
- Blockage: Flushing things down the toilet that shouldn’t be flushed, like paper towels, diapers, etc., can block the sewer line and require professional repair.
- Tree root intrusion: Depending on the location of your sewer line’s access point, tree roots can be an unexpected source of the blockage. As the roots grow and extend, they can work their way into the piping and prevent the free flow of water.
- Corrosion: All pipes age, and corrosion is one of the consequences of aging pipes. Older pipes can also be more vulnerable to cracking or shifting. Any of these issues can create the negative consequences of a damaged sewer line.
