1. How Do You Maintain a Sewer Line?

To maintain a sewer line, you should regularly inspect it for any signs of damage, such as leaks, clogs, odors, or noises. You should also avoid flushing or pouring anything that could cause blockages, such as grease, hair, wipes, or chemicals. If you notice any problems, you should contact a professional plumber to fix them as soon as possible.

2. How Do You Treat a Sewer Leak?

To treat a sewer leak, you should first turn off the main water supply and the water heater to prevent further damage. Then, you should locate the source of the leak and seal it temporarily with duct tape or a clamp. You should also clean up any wastewater or sewage that has spilled in your home or yard.

3. Do Sewer Lines Hold Water?

Sewer lines are designed to transport wastewater and sewage from your home to the municipal sewer system. They are not meant to hold water, as this could cause pressure buildup, corrosion, or blockages. However, some sewer lines may have a small amount of water in them due to gravity, slope, or traps.

4. How Do You Clean Waste Pipes?

To clean waste pipes, you can use natural or chemical drain cleaners to dissolve or dislodge any clogs or debris. You can also use a plunger, a snake, or a hydro jet to clear the pipes manually. However, some methods may be more effective or suitable than others, depending on the type and location of the clog.

5. What Is a Sewer Leak?

A sewer leak is a crack or a hole in a sewer line that allows wastewater or sewage to escape. A sewer leak can be caused by various factors, such as corrosion, tree roots, ground movement, or freezing temperatures. A sewer leak can result in health hazards, environmental damage, and structural problems. Therefore, it is important to detect and repair a sewer leak as soon as possible.

6. What Are the Dangers of Neglecting Sewer System Repairs?

Neglecting sewer system repairs can lead to sewage backup, pipe burst, and higher costs, which can harm your home, health, and wallet. You may need to repair your sewer system if you experience slow or clogged drains, gurgling or bubbling sounds, sewer smell, or wet spots or sinkholes in your property.

Friendly, informative, and overall a pleasure to deal with Chris. Capital Plumbing unfortunately has a $99 show up fee, understandable, and I did not compare prices so will not attest to that but they showed up within 24 hours when a lot of others said within a week.

I used Capital Plumbing at my old residence. They were the best then and still continue to be today. I knew when I called for service for my new place I would definitely get the same service. I was right and they didn’t disappoint. The technician was excellent. The lady that answered the phone was the best customer service representative I have ever talk to. They are very lucky to have such a great representative for their company answer the phone. It all starts with the phone call. I would 100% recommend this company to everyone

(Updated from 1 to 3 stars) They eventually did the work they said they would do but:- they didn’t do the work the first time they came- I had to call them six times to get them to finally listen and come back without charging me even more- the tech complained to my wife that the job was underquoted (even though the quote was given on site after a thorough examination of our system)- I have no way of checking whether he did a good job or rushed through it because he thought we weren’t paying enoughI give 3 stars because the job was eventually completed but I had to hound them and argue to get them to do the job they originally agreed to for the price they quoted. If you want the full story, read on.I asked them to come give me a quote for a water softener and descaling - they originally told me it would be a free quote and then tried to change that to be $100 for a “service call”, which I had to argue to avoid.The tech was friendly and helpful, so I agreed to do the descaling for about $500. After maybe 45 minutes he said he couldn’t do the descaling because he didn’t know if the unit was designed to be descaled, and he admitted he didn’t really do anything for me. He charged me a reduced price but still over $250, and I didn’t think I had any choice. After he left I called the boiler manufacturer and within 10 minutes found out it should be descaled.It took two weeks of me calling over and over, speaking to different receptionists and hearing various reasons they couldn’t do it yet or couldn’t confirm a price and then they would just stop calling me back. Finally I was told I would have to pay the full original price on top of what I already paid. I said that was unacceptable because all I am asking is for them to do what they originally said they would do and I am willing to pay the difference.I was told a manager would reach out to me to discuss. Mid afternoon I called again and was told he had just stepped out but would call as soon as he got back. Finally the next morning he called back and agreed to do what I was asking, and a tech came the next week. The tech was at our house for about 1.5 hours and complained that we were underquoted but still honoured the price.

Second time I’ve used Capital Plumbing because first experience was fantastic as was my current experience. Dave is very knowledgeable and explained everything. Explained the cost process before picking up a part. Will be definitely requesting Dave when needed in the future. Thank you so much.
