Frequently Asked Questions

Questions? We've got you covered! Check out our FAQ for quick answers to common queries. Need info not covered? Reach out, and we'll happily assist with any questions or concerns you have. We're here to help!
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.

Sewer System Backups

Your sewer system can be clogged due to the waste blocked in the drain or get destroyed by the tree roots. Even if you don’t have a tree in your yard, the tree roots from the neighbours’ trees can damage your sewer pipes. Tree roots can spread through your sewer pipes causing holes, blockages or it can crush the pipe by enclosing around it.

Consequences

We don’t give attention to the sewer line until it starts backing up. Sewer backups can cause health issues to you, your family members, or pets. Water in the sewer backups is full of waste which contains toxic and contaminants substances like fungi, viruses, bacteria, protozoan and pesticides. Kitchen utensils, toiletries can get in touch with the toxic from wastewater.
Sewer water can also cause damage to your water pipes. Sewer backup left untreated can cause more damage like water problems in your walls, floors, insulation. It can cause another severe problem like mold and bacteria which can spread to the walls and floors of the house. Mold can cause health effects too.
Your water level can increase to the height of any electric outlet, electric wires, or gas burning equipment and can cause a big fire hazard. In such a case, you should call an electrician and refrain from touching anything. If the water level is below the electric socket or wires, turn off the power and call a plumbing professional to resolve it.

Our experts have solved such cases. If you see any water backups in the sewer, call us. Our experts are skilled at such work. The best services are provided to the customers at the quickest. Don’t ignore any sewer backups; reach for us as quick as possible.

This is my second time using the team at capital heating and plumbing and I can honestly say there team has some real hero’s.We had the please of having Jesse Piech as our plumber today he was on time respectable and he even went out of his way to help get the neighbours cat out of a tree on his lunch break I might add all well his pogo went cold( luckily he installed our new range all before lunch so he could warm it up)Capital plumbings team swept and whipped down the area they worked in and cleaned up all the mess and left our home looking even better than when they got there.I would recommend this company to anyone needing service done right with great people it was nice to have trades men with out potty mouths and can clean up after ones self.

It has been two years and we love our John Wood water heater!Tom and his Capital Plumbing install team were quiet, efficient, friendly and cleaned up the area well following install.At the same time, all sinks had an easy-to-use shut-off valve added beneath for safety in case of water emergency, a water line for future refrigerator was installed and they threw in a new, safe hose attachment for the clothes washer to replace the aging rubber. Never even thought of it. You never want a water line to burst!

Great experience. Capital plumbing was able to get me in within 2 days whereas all other plumbing companies I called couldn't get me in until next week. I was late returning Toms call, so he took the liberty of doing an inspection on my home and flagged a couple more issues before fixing the one I called about. Really appreciate his diligence and customer service!

A couple of weeks ago Darren replaced our hot water tank after it burst. Capital was so quick to respond and Darren was very good. He helped with the flood we had from the tank. Within a few hours we had a new water tank installed. Today Daniel came back and did amazingly replacing our sump pump and cleaning our furnace and humidifier. He is very thorough and did a great job explaining our issues. Thanks Capital plumbing and heating for always being there for us and having the best employees.
