The Hobaica team showing love for our clients.

We hope you have had a lovely month as we come to the end of February! 

Unfortunately, if you are having issues with your Phoenix area home’s main sewer line, things probably aren’t as lovely as you would like.

Your home’s main sewer line is a pretty important part of your plumbing system. Sadly, it’s also the most overlooked part of your home. Sewer lines issues, when left unchecked and untreated, can cause you hundreds to thousands of dollars, not to mention a lot of hassle and headaches. 

Under the ground and out of sight, you don’t want to forget about this essential piece of your plumbing network. The Hobaica Services team of experts is here to help guide you on all things main sewer line so nothing unexpected pops up. 

How Does A Main Sewer Line Work?

The main sewer line takes all of the water from your drains and carries it to your septic tank or sewer. Think of it almost like a highway - side roads leading to larger highways before connecting to a major interstate. Your home’s smaller pipes carry drained water to larger pipes, all being flushed out through one large main sewer line underground. 

When you think of everything being sent down the drains from everywhere in your house - including from toilets, laundry machines, dishwashers, sinks and showers - it all adds up pretty quickly to become one of your most important home systems. 

What Are The Signs I Have A Clogged Sewer Line?

A clogged main sewer line is a pretty common problem in our area. You know how you hear a lot about how you shouldn’t put grease down your sink or flush those so-called “flushable” wipes? A sewer line becomes clogged many times because of grease or other build-ups from things like that. A backed-up line means none of the drained waste or water can leave your house, which is a big deal. 

Spotting the signs of a clogged sewer line early will save you a lot of hassle. Some signs your line is clogged and you need a sewer line cleaning include:

  • More than one slow-moving drain.
  • Any gurgling sounds or bubbling from a toilet. 
  • The smell of sewage from your drains. 
  • Backup in your sewer line cleanout. 

Do I Need A Sewer Line Repair Or Replacement? 

If clogs are not taken care of properly, it can lead to problems with the sewer line piping. Sewer line breaks can also be caused by tree roots or just the ground shifting over time. With trenchless technology, it is possible to fix a broken sewer without having to dig up your yard. You can also replace the line with trenchless solutions if it is an older line that is beyond repair. 

Some signs that a simple line cleaning will not suffice and you need a repair or replacement include:

  • Regular backups of your sewer line. 
  • The constant smell of sewage in your home. 
  • Areas of your property that stay damp or have unusually lush grass or foliage. 

A sewer line camera inspection will give you more answers to what, exactly, is going on with your underground pipe and precisely where on your property the problem lies. 

How Do I Maintain My Sewer Line? 

To try and avoid a major sewer line repair or replacement, there are a few things you can do:

  • If you have had clogs in the past and have hired someone to snake your line, try hydro-jetting the main sewer line instead. This process is much more effective at removing any blockages so you’ll have fewer issues in the future. 
  • Avoid using drain cleaners that are not biological. Harsh chemicals may alleviate the clog in your tub, but down the line they can corrode your pipes. 
  • Stop flushing “flushable” wipes down the toilet and never wash grease away in the sink.

Scott came by today to perform routine maintenance on our air conditioners. He discovered one of the capacitors to be failing & was able to replace it quickly & efficiently. Now I can get through the summer without worries. Thanks Scott!

Hello, just a little note to tell you how great our Technicians were today.Ivan and Troy showed up a little ahead of schedule, met with us, checked out the work areas and got right to work. And they did a fantastic job! I thought I was going to hear all kinds of banging and all kinds of noise but instead it was just a little bit of noise and the cool sound of Ivan whistling... reminded me of my Dad, he always whistled to, it was great.Troy was also quietly working outside.Upon completion of the work Troy and Ivan showed us their work and how the new thermostat worked.They did a great job with the installation, very professional work! I've seen a few air conditioning/furnace installations over the years when building homes with my dad and cousin...and these two technicians (Ivan and Troy) are obviously very good at what they do, and very good with the customer service experience they exhibited to us!!And personally I think they both definitely deserve a raise!!! And no, they didn't ask me to say this, LOL. It's obvious they're humble guys that would never ask for something like this, but they definitely deserve a minimum some fantastic kudos to some great Hobiaca Technicians!Kudos to Ivan and Troy for a job very well done!Thank you,Jack and Jackie Guzman11/11/2021
