The pipes in your home might seem as if they’ll last as long as your home does, and we truly hope you never have to deal with any sewer problems during your home ownership. Unfortunately, this isn’t entirely realistic.
Although your sewer pipes are certainly durable, they will need replacement—eventually. The number of years can vary greatly and depends on many circumstances (and perhaps a little luck), but we’re here to help you understand a little more about what you might expect.

It’s quite possibly the worst issue you can picture coming across with your property. A sewage leak is not something that’s easy to protect against, and something that could cause a major headache, thousands of dollars in repairs, and a potential health hazard.
The dangers, however, are drastically reduced if you catch the problem early. Of course, that means knowing just what to look for.

A slab leak is a common issue, but many of our customers don’t even know about slab leaks until one occurs in their home. The concrete slab that your property likely sits on—as many of the properties in our area have slab foundations rather than raised foundations or crawlspaces—has pipes running underneath it as part of your home’s water supply.
Unfortunately, a leak can occur in these pipes, and as you might guess, it can be rather difficult to catch. If you have some idea of why slab leaks occur, however, you may know what to look for and feel better prepared should one come your way. After all, it’s important to catch these leaks early to minimize the cost of repair and water damage.

“I hope it just needs more Freon,” you might say, when your air conditioner is not cooling your home sufficiently.
As a brief primer, Freon is a brand name that is not descriptive of all common refrigerants used today, so technicians prefer the generic term “refrigerant” which may describe any number of formulas. R-22, the refrigerant most commonly used a few decades ago, has widely been replaced with systems that use R-410A, which does not contribute to ozone depletion as R-22 does.
You may hope that your air conditioner just needs more refrigerant because you’ve heard that it’s a quick fix, or because a mechanic has added refrigerant to your car’s AC in the past. But could this be what your central air conditioner needs? And is it really a quick fix?

The sewer line is something you’re super grateful to have—even if you don’t want to think about it. It runs underneath your property and guides all that wastewater from your home to where it needs to go, either to a septic tank or the city’s sewer main. You’ve come to expect this ease of transport, making it so that you never have to deal with sewage on your own, thankfully.
Understandably, when a sewer line backs up, you may start to feel a bit betrayed. This is especially true if it seems to keep backing up time and time again, even after you’ve removed a clog. Finding the source of the clog can make it so much easier for you to move on with your daily routine and forget about the chances of slowed drains or backup.

Most people know that their air conditioning system has an air filter. Most people also know that their air filter helps to keep many commonly harmful particles out of their air. What many people do not know, however, is that the air filter is really designed to do much more.
For the most part, your air filter is designed to provide protection for your AC system. Think of how much damage it could suffer as the blower fan sucked in air if there was not a filter to stop particulate from flying into the system. Still, even though you have a filter in place, it might not be doing its job.

One of our favorite investments in our plumbing business is the hydro jetter. Hydro jetters are able to do the tough jobs that traditional drain cleaning methods simply cannot. That said, it’s not always the first choice for all drain clogs. And sometimes, you might think this method is unnecessary.
So when should you schedule hydro jetting for your drains? We’ll get into that below, after a brief overview of the process. To really determine whether your drains are in need of hydro jetting service, contact your local plumbers for an assessment of your pipes.
