Expert Sewer Services in Monterey, CA

Sewage and sanitation are something humans have been thinking about since literally the dawn of civilization. Anywhere you have a lot of humans, you’re also going to have a lot of waste, and it’s easy to take for granted the out-of-sight, out-of-mind nature of today’s modern sewage system.

One of the best features of modern sewage is that, unless we need a setting for a fantastic story involving turtles doing martial arts, we generally don’t have to think about it. It’s efficiently designed to neatly carry the waste products of civilization quietly under our feet, protecting us from the stench of our more base requirements as humans.

Unfortunately, everything breaks, including the components that make up our sewer system. When the worst happens and your home’s sewer lines are in need of repair or replacement, there’s no one more qualified than the professionals here at After Hour Plumbing & Drain.

Common Sewer Line Problems

Depending on the materials used, the sewer line attached to your home should have a lifespan between 60 and 100 years. When installed properly and well maintained, the common sewer line issues that our professionals encounter fall within a small range. The most common issues our professionals encounter are:

  • Pipe Corrosion/Damage: This is the most common sewer-line issue that needs to be addressed and is generally caused over time by the general erosion of running water flowing through a metal pipe.
  • Obstructions: Occasionally, tree roots and other natural obstructions can damage and cause large issues with your home’s sewer connections.
  • Shifting Pipes: This is caused when the ground your pipes are buried in shifts for some reason. This can be caused by water erosion, earthquakes or any number of natural phenomena.

No matter the issue, whether it’s one of the common scenarios given above or damage caused by a freak disaster beyond explanation, we guarantee that our professionals are qualified to assess the situation and provide the most reliable plumbing services!

Signs of Sewer Line Damage

The early signs of sewer-line damage can be subtle and show up in places you wouldn’t expect. It’s completely possible for a damaged line to have no effect whatsoever on the actual plumbing system it’s attached to. Instead, damage appears in other ways:

  • Flooding in yard or crawlspaces
  • Fowl smells coming from the yard or around the base of the home
  • Slow or blocked drainage in the home
  • Water damage on floor or baseboards

If you notice any of these signs, or for any reason feel that your home’s sewer line and connections may not be performing up to standard, don’t hesitate to contact the professionals at After Hour Plumbing & Drain to address any concerns you may have.

We’re committed to providing the most consistent Monterey sewer line repair & installation possible. We provide a wide range of services and options which include trenchless repair options and sewer line rehabilitation.

Our Experienced Plumbers Answer Your Questions!
  • What does descaling a pipe mean?

    Descaling a pipe refers to the process of removing mineral deposits, scale, and other accumulated debris from the interior walls of a scaled pipe. Descaling pipes involves using specialized tools or chemicals to dissolve and dislodge these deposits, restoring the pipe’s smooth surface and improving water flow. This preventive maintenance technique helps prevent clogs, corrosion, and potential plumbing damage. If you’re interested in scheduling your descaling service, reach out to After Hour Plumbing & Drain!

  • What is a sewer camera inspection used for?
    A pipe inspection camera is a valuable tool our team uses to visually inspect the interior of sewer lines and drains. It consists of a high-resolution camera attached to a flexible cable that can be inserted into the pipes. The camera sends real-time footage to a monitor, allowing our plumbers to examine the condition of the pipes, and identify clogs, cracks, leaks, or other issues that may not be visible from the outside. Sewer camera inspections help diagnose sewer problems precisely, enabling targeted repairs and ultimately saving time and costs.
  • What is hydro jetting?
    Hydro jetting is a powerful plumbing technique used to clear stubborn blockages from drains and sewer lines. This process involves the use of a specialized high-pressure water jet to forcefully blast water through the pipes, breaking down grease, tree roots, scale, and other obstructions. This is a safe and environmentally friendly method that thoroughly cleans the interior of your pipes, promoting optimal water flow. This advanced technology helps prevent future clogs and ensures long-lasting results for your plumbing system.
