Although cities are responsible for putting their water through an industrial treatment process before it is piped into your home, the process may not be completely effective at removing all bacteria.

Your main water and sewer lines are located a few feet below your front lawn – unless you have a septic tank, and they are responsible for connecting your home to public water and sewage systems. Broken water mains are an extremely rare occurrence that the average homeowner should not experience, or should only experience once. When a main line breaks, it can be an exceptionally stressful, confusing, and panic-inducing time for any homeowner or family. At Best Plumber Seattle, we are ready to help you and your family through the difficulty of a broken or leaking main water or sewer line. If you find yourself experiencing a broken sewer or water line, call our office today at (206) 201-0181. Here is some more in-depth information about what you might be experiencing, what you can expect, and how the repair process works:

Water Main Repair or Replacement:

There are a few signs that your main water line might be broken or leaking, but the most common sign to looking for is a clear stream of water. The stream could be found in a few places/ways. Three common spots where streams are found when there’s a leak or break are through a foundation wall, on your property, or in the roadway around your home. The most important thing you can do to prevent further damage, get the problem under control, and solved as quickly as possible is call a licensed plumber immediately. It is important to note that there are many sources from which water could be flowing, so the first step is getting a professional plumber to your home. At Best Plumber Seattle, we will answer your call right away at any hour of the day, and we will send a technician out immediately to confirm the source of your leak. Not all water leaks will be from a main water line, but all water leaks should be addressed as they can cause tremendous damage. In addition to an obvious stream of water, another common sign is a rumble or hiss coming from the main pipe’s point of entry into your home. The only time you should hear sound coming from your water main is when water is actively in use within your house. If water is not being used, but you still hear sounds, you should call a licensed plumber immediately as it could be a serious issue. Finally, the third sign you should watch out for that could indicate a leaky or broken pipe is a loss of water pressure. Although every break or leak might not cause a decrease in water pressure, it is definitely a possibility and we recommend calling Best Plumber Seattle today to asses the situation.

After discovering the source of your leak, we can determine the next repair steps with you. For a broken or leaking water main, the most common cause is often wear and tear. Water mains usually offer a lifespan of about 60 years, but that number is not set in stone. Besides natural wear and tear on the pipes, another common reason behind water main leaks and breaks is improper installation or misuse. If the pipe was not installed correctly, this will cause the pipe to leak or break from stress earlier than a pipe that was properly installed. Again, it is essential that you contact a licensed, trained, professional plumbing company when working with any plumbing repairs or installations.

Finally, there are three primary things we take into consideration when working with the repair or replacement of a broken/leaky water main. When deciding whether to repair or replace, we consider: the material, age, and previous repairs of the pipe. In most cases, we recommend replacing the pipe completely. Even though a main water pipe replacement is costly (one of the most costly plumbing repairs we work with), it is financially smarter in the long run. There is no guarantee that a repaired pipe will not leak again, and repairing the same pipe twice could cause more stress and cost your family more money down the road.

Sewer Pipe Repair or Replacement:

In general, a cast iron sewer pipe will have a lifespan of 25-35 years. Our professionals at Best Plumber Seattle recommend considering inspections of the pipes around 25 years, as they could already be experiencing failure or damage. Our primary goal when working with sewer lines is to avoid complete line failure, as a failed or collapsed line will cost you exceptionally more than repairs to a functioning line. There are a few telltale signs of a deteriorating or failing sewer line that you should be aware of. If you are experiencing any, multiple, or all of these, we recommend consulting a professional as soon as possible. For the best plumber in Seattle, call our office at (206) 201-0181. Here are some common signs that you might need a repair or replacement for your sewer line: regular backups or blockages in your toilet, sink, or bathtub, sewer gas odor in or around your home or building, mold growth (usually accompanied with a sewer odor), slow drains even after attempts to clear the line, and extra green patches in your yard (sewer leaks offer surrounding soil extra nutrients). There are many other indicators of a broken or damaged sewer line, and we recommend calling our office as soon as possible and having one of our trained technicians asses your home.

For plumbing issues, especially a broken sewer or water line, it is essential that you work with a reputable plumbing contractor. To see if a company is reputable and reliable, check whether or not they are accredited by the Better Business Bureau. A reliable business must go through a background check with the BBB, and they are reviewed annually. In addition, word of mouth is a great way to receive feedback about companies, especially plumbing. If a neighbor has experiencing a similar issue, we recommend talking to them about their experience. Overall, the most important factors when considering plumber repairs of any kind are: whether the contractor is licensed, bonded, and insured per your state’s requirements. For a water or sewer main repair or replacement, the contractor must be licensed to perform sub surface water main and sewer work.

Approximately a third of Americans treat the waste in their homes via a septic system.The overall design of a septic tank is simple: all drains in a home drain to one pipe that leads to a septic tank. Tanks are buried outside of the home, deep in the yard. When waste water exits your home, it is all combined and drains through the single pipe. When it enters the septic tank, it begins separating into three layers (called “septage”), bottom to top:

  • Sludge: heavy, solid waste
  • Effluent/Gray Water: clear liquid layer
  • Scum: fats, oils, and proteins that float on the top

In an average system, the effluent layer is discharged from the septic tank and into a drain field consisting of several pipes with holes in them, that are responsible for releasing the liquid below ground. The effluent is filtered by the soil, and often acts as a fertilizer for the grass above it; as a result, the drain field is usually directly under the healthiest part of the yard.

Septic tanks require a lot of monitoring by homeowners in order to prevent serious issues. Unfortunately, once septic tanks become problematic, it is too late for a plumber to offer a simple solution. At Best Plumber Seattle, we suggest that our customers who utilize a septic system get routine inspections and maintenance done by a professional to maximize the lifespan and functionality of your system. During an annual check, a plumber will check the water level in your tank, measure the solid levels on the bottom, and measure the levels of scum on top. It is recommended that you pump your tank about every three to five years, but it could be recommended that you pump it more depending on the appliances you use and the size of your household. Between inspections, it is important to check for any signs of septic problems, which can include: backed up toilets and drains, sewer smells in and around the house, or standing water in your yard above the tank. Septic systems require special care and maintenance that, if adhered to, can prevent serious problems from arising. Try to avoid letting certain substances and items enter your system. Some examples include:

Solids: try to limit the amount of solids that are being flushed into your tank. Do not flush feminine hygiene products (in any system, not just septic), paper towels, cigarette butts, disposable diapers, etc.

Garbage disposal: avoid over-using your garbage disposal, as this waste will be disposed of in your system.

Household Cleaners: try to use organic and biodegradable products when possible. Do not use drain cleaners, as the slightest amount can turn your septic tank into a major problem.

Hazardous Substances: do not put gasoline, paint thinners, or motor oil into your septic system.

Grease and Fat: grease and oil can clog a septic system and the drain field, which can pollute the surrounding soil in your yard.

What do you do when your septic system malfunctions? If you do not keep up with the regular maintenance of your septic system, the system can overflow and malfunction. Overflow can lead back to your home, and septic waste can find itself in your toilets and drains. Septic overflows can also lead to unprocessed waste in the drain field. When this happens, water can seep above ground and cause a flooded yard. Flooding can cause issues below ground, as well, especially with groundwater. To avoid contaminating water supplies and your home, be sure to keep up with the required maintenance of your septic system.

If you find sewage in your house, check the water level of your tank. If it is lower than the outlet, call a plumber to inspect. The pipe between your home and tank might be clogged. If the level is higher than your outlet, this is indicative of a more serious issue. We recommend starting with having your tank pumped. In doing so, you will have more time to get your system inspected and to find a rational solution that works best for you and your family.

Be sure to keep people away from standing water or soggy soil around a septic tank. This can be a bio hazard, and should be addressed by a trained professional.

If your drain field is failing, it is often caused because a septic system was not pumped often enough. A drain field failure can be a result of thick sludge and scum layers, which throw off the environment inside a septic tank. If scum gets into the drain field, the oils and grease can clog it, which will result in a sewage smell and possible standing water above your tank. If you are noticing a smell or standing water, the problem is most likely beyond repair and will require a replacement. In general, a drain field will last about thirty years before it begins experiencing natural wear and tear.

Replacing a septic tank can be difficult, and depends on many factors. When replacing a septic tank, we consider the tank size, tank material, surrounding soil chemistry, permits, and installation charges. If you are in the market for a new septic tank or system, call Best Plumber Seattle today. We will send a trained technician to your home and we will work with you to find the best fit for your family. If sewage is backing up in your harm, or you’re smelling terrible odors, this is a telltale sign that there might be an issue with your septic system. Our technician will recommend a replacement or repair, depending on the level of damage. If the problem is as simple as a broken pipe, a repair could be relatively simple. But, if you need a completely new treatment system, a total replacement might be the only solution.

Most issues with septic systems can be solved relatively easily, but tend to be costly repairs. If you are worried about your septic system, call Best Plumber Seattle and get a professional opinion. We will send a trained, licensed professional to your home for a consultation. We promise you will receive the best service in the Seattle area, with our primary goal always being customer satisfaction and a quick turnaround. Call our office at (206) 201-0181 today and let us help you.

A sump pump is arguably the most important plumbing fixture in your home, and you often won’t even know it is there (or what it does) until it malfunctions. Generally, a sump pump’s primary purpose is to keep the lowest level, usually the basement, of your home or business dry. According to the American Society of Home Inspectors, over 60% of homes in the United States experience below-ground wetness, and an even higher percentage of homeowners have experience a flooded basement or crawlspace in the time they’ve owned a home. Water damage is costly and can lead to many health issues. Save yourself some money The fixture consists of a small pump that is installed in the lowest part of your home or business to keep the area under a building dry and to prevent flooding. Sump pumps are installed in sump pits, which are specially constructed to allow water to flow into it through drains or by natural water mitigation. The sump pump’s primary purpose is to pump water out of the sump pit and away from the building. In summary, water that would have normally flowed into your basement or crawlspace is pumped away from the building to prevent flooding.

If you need a sump pump installed, Best Plumber Seattle will send one of our licensed technicians to your home and we will offer you a consultation and estimate at no cost. We will take time to answer any questions you might have, and we will walk you through as much of the installation process as you want. The process simply begins with determining the location of where sewer, water, and utility lines enter your home, and finding the lowest point of the lowest level in your home or business through the use of a laser level. The sump pump will be installed about 8 inches away from an outside wall, and the sump pit will be dug to the depth recommended by the sump pump manufacturer and the technician we provide. There are many more steps that we will take to efficiently install your sump pump, and we’d be more than happy to take you step-by-step. With an average of 37.5 inches of rainfall per year in Seattle, we at Best Plumber Seattle highly recommend that each home we service be equipped with a sump pump to most effectively prevent flooding and leakage into your home. Some common sump pump services that we provide include:

  • Backup Battery Installation
  • Replacement of Parts
  • Fixing Clogged Pumps
  • Routine Cleaning & Maintenance

If you are experiencing issues with your sump pump, contact us and we’ll send a trained professional out to assess your pump and the situation. Some common problems include, but are not limited to:

  • Debris Buildup
  • Clogged Pump
  • Broken or Malfunctioning Pump
  • Pump Won’t Turn Off
  • Improper Installation of Pump or Pit

We recommend equipping your sump pump with a battery backup, especially if you live in an area that experience high levels of precipitation. If you have one mechanical sump pump, it can lose its functionality as soon as a power source is lost. If you are experiencing severe weather that knocks your power out, without a backup battery, your sump pump will no longer be able to prevent your home or business from flooding. A backup sump pump will cost more than the mechanical pump itself, but we highly recommend protecting your home or business by making the purchase. Installation is simple, and the benefits are unparalleled. If you are in the market for a new sump pump, or would like a battery backup, call Best Plumber Seattle today at (206) 201-0181.

Though you may not realize it, your water heater is probably the most-used appliance in your home. Using the shower, washing your hands, doing the dishes, and engaging in countless other daily activities all require use of a water heater. With the frequency in which it’s used, it is important to get routine checks and repairs done to avoid major issues that could leave you without hot water in the future. We work with all kinds of water heaters, but the most common are tankless. If you are interested in upgrading your water heater from a gas or electric-powered tank to a tankless model, we can help! As opposed to the older style of heating water in a storage tank and refilling it as you use water, a tankless model will allow you and your family to have seemingly instant access to hot water all day, every day. A common sign that it might be time to schedule a consultation or repair for your water heater is if you are noticing short-lived hot water coming from your faucets, or if your faucets are not producing hot water at all. There are many options regarding water heaters, and Best Plumber Seattle is ready to send a licensed professional to help you decide which one will best fit you and your family’s needs. To ensure your water heater is receiving the best possible care, call us at Best Plumber Seattle to do a routine check, to install a new water heater for you and your family, or to assist with any repairs.

Root-X Treatment ensures the main sewer line is clear, kills off new growth and roots that are clogging lines, prevents roots from continuing to overtake sewer lines, and should be redone once a year

Root-X is a foaming solution that is used to control root and plant growth in sewer lines, storm pipes, and septic systems. If roots are left untreated within a sewer line, flow can be restricted or, in some cases, the pipe can become completely blocked and lead to damage to the sewer systems. As plants and trees grow, root systems eventually find their way to sewer and wastewater pipelines, usually as a result of seeking moisture. Roots can work their way into a pipe in a few ways, but the most common are through joints or cracks in the pipe. Root intrusion can become a serious problem if left untreated, because pipes will gradually become overgrown with plant materials. The more you allow roots to invade your sewer system, the more water flow will become restricted. At Best Plumber Seattle, we recommend treating your pipes with RootX once a year. Root-X is guaranteed to keep sewer and septic systems clear from root obstructions for 12 months after application, and we will always send a reminder to our customers when it’s about time to apply again.

Root-X will not affect your pipe’s structural integrity, and it does not harm the environment around your system. Root-X is “non-caustic, non-fumigating and non-systemic”, and uses an aquatic herbicide to kill roots. Roots are killed within an hour after application, but we recommend limiting water usage for about four to six hours after treatment. Root-X treatments are quick and easy, usually only taking our trained technicians a few minutes to complete. If you are overdue for a Root-X treatment or would like to try a new method for clearing roots and plant matter from your sewer or septic system, call our office today at (206) 201-0181. We look forward to helping you!
