Sewer And Drains
Although it appears to be just connected together, your home’s sewer and drain system is complex. It is designed to remove wastes and waste water from your home and to provide a seal to prevent sewer gas from entering your home. There also is a main sewer line that carries waste material from your home to the city sewer line. There are also individual lines (lateral lines) to each of your fixtures. The lateral lines connect to your main line like branches of a tree connect to the trunk. Drain lines inside your home usually clog because grease, hair, soap or food particles slowly build up over time . Then, one day (usually when you have a house full of people !), the drain stops working and over flows.
AC Drain Lines
Just like the drains on your kitchen sink, the AC condensate drain line can become clogged. This drain is responsible for removing condensation from the AC unit and is connected to a plumbing drain. In most cases, the AC unit has a pan under the unit and secondary drain line connected to the pan that directs water outside so that it empties harmlessly onto the lawn if the primary drain line clogs up. If, however, the drain becomes clogged and the water backs up and begin to fill the pan this could result in potential water damage.
What Is A Clean Out?
Texas Plumbing Code requires that you have a clean-out on the main sewer line and kitchen sink line outside your home, fairly close to where the main line leaves the house. The code also requires that additional clean-outs be installed every 100 feet along the line and also wherever the line has a 45 degree or more change of direction. These clean-outs allow your plumber to use sewer cleaning machines to clear blockages in your lines without digging up your yard or pulling a toilet to gain entry to the main sewer line . You should always know where the main line clean-out is and you should ensure that it is accessible . If you are not sure where your clean-out is, or if you think you may not have one, Call Plumb Right Plumbing to come and inspect the drain line .

Broken drain lines under homes can cause foundation damage among other serious problems. To access the affected area, tunnels need to be created. This requires proper planning and lots of manpower because all work is done by hand with no machines. Before any digging is done, utility lines must be located to prevent their disruption. Tunneling under foundations is our specialty and replacing plumbing under the slab – and doing so safely and affordably — is what we do best. Often when replacing plumbing, its necessary to reroute drain lines to minimize costly or large tunnels that could damage your homes foundation. However, it’s important to balance the need to cut costs with the need to get it right the first time.
To replace or reroute plumbing drains in the yard, it’s necessary to dig trenches by hand. They can range anywhere from 18 inches to 25 feet in depth depending on the project. Trenches are also used to keep proper slope of the drainpipe when rerouting drain lines. Before any trenching is done, utility lines such as electrical ,gas ,cable should always be located before digging begins.
