Costa Mesa Sewer Lateral Inspections
Providing Reliable Plumbing Solutions throughout Costa Mesa, Irvine & Orange County
Your residential sewer lateral line is the line of drain pipes leading from your home to the city’s sewer system. In most places, homeowners are responsible for maintaining the entire sewer lateral line from their building to the point of connection, including the connection, with their city’s mainline.
Parzival Plumbing can help you maintain your sewer line to avoid clogs and other potential problems. Our team of Costa Mesa & Irvine sewer lateral inspections have extensive experience and can offer you honest, upfront pricing for our sewer lateral line inspections.
The Importance of Sewer Lateral Inspections and Routine Maintenance
Without regular maintenance, lateral lines can become blocked or otherwise impaired, causing waste material to back up into your house and the adjacent environment. Besides the normal wear and tear of daily use, pipes can be damaged by flushing inappropriate items down your sink or toilet—as well as by underground tree roots.
As tree roots grow, they expand and apply considerable pressure to your underground sewer lines. Eventually, this creates cracks in your lateral sewer pipe, allowing soil and other debris to enter. Once cracks occur, roots may begin to grow inside the pipe and eventually break or collapse them, requiring a major pipe replacement project.
Some other relatively unknown culprits of clogged sewer lines include:
- Flushable wipes, contrary to their name
If you do find yourself with backed up sewer pipes, a plumber will probably recommend services that involve rodding your lateral line or hydro jetting to remove the blockages. In this case, plumbers will thread a flexible metal cable with an attached cutting tool into your sewer line. Hydro jetting involves cleaning the line with high-pressure water and is a bit more aggressive in removing stubborn roots.
Unfortunately, if left unchecked, these common problems can eventually cause several thousands of dollars’ worth of property damage to your home and the surrounding area. As the old adage goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, and this is especially true in the case of plumbing problems. By conducting an annual sewer lateral inspection, our Costa Mesa sewer lateral inspection plumbers can save your family and your city council members some major headaches.
