You use your sewer line countless times each day, but it’s easy not to think about it until there’s a problem. Sewer lines are susceptible to numerous problems that can cause breaks, clogs, or backups in your home. It’s always smart to hire a Sacramento sewer repair expert to assess your sewer line regularly and to be aware of some of the common problems that nature causes for sewer lines.
Tree roots are the top cause of sewer line breaks and clogs. Roots are strong, and as they grow towards sources of moisture, they can penetrate your sewer piped with ease. In addition, if a sewer line is cracked by other causes, nearby tree roots will immediately be attracted to the moisture. If tree roots reach into your pipes, you’ll need a sewer repair company to fix the break and unclog your piping right away.
Rodents are also attracted to the water contained in your sewer pipes. The creatures will dig holes near sewer lines, causing major problems in the structure and strength of the piping. This digging can also cause major clogs that require a sewer repair company to fix. If you see any rodent holes near your home’s sewer line, consider calling a plumber who can perform a thorough sewer inspection.
Sewer lines use gravity to pull waste from your home to the city’s main sewage system underground. However, shifting or sinking soil can change the slant of your pipes and even cause breaks in the piping. If your home is older or located in an area where the ground frequently shifts, be sure to schedule regular sewer repair inspections from your local plumber.

Saving water is not only great for the environment, it’s also better for your utility bills each month. Having low-flow plumbing options once meant needing to make frequent calls to your Sacramento plumber, but new technology has made these water-saving fixtures equally as effective as their full-flow counterparts. If your old fixtures require frequent plumbing service or if you want to cut back on your water bills, try out these great low-flow options.
Toilets: Low-flow toilets use about half as much water as standard toilets for each flush. The gallons of savings add up fast, greatly reducing your impact on the environment and your monthly bills. These toilets use redesigned bowls or added pressure features to ensure effective flushing, so you won’t have to worry about calling the plumber because of poor water pressure or clogs.
Faucets: Low-flow faucets or small faucet add-ons can help control the amount of water that flows when you turn on the sink. Pipes often have varying pressure throughout the day, and without regulation, sinks can waste a lot of water. With low-flow faucet regulators, you always know that your sink is using an efficient amount of water.
Showerheads: Next time you’re getting a drain cleaning from your plumber, ask about the amount of water you could save with a low-flow showerhead. These state-of-the-art water-saving devices provide plenty of water pressure while also regulating the amount of water waste coming out. Showers are one of the top uses of water in any household, so ensuring that a reasonable amount of water is coming out of your pipes can be a great benefit to your utility bills.
If you want lower monthly payments and a reduced impact on the environment, talk to your Sacramento plumber about your home’s low-flow options. New fixtures or add-ons can help you reduce your water usage each day. At Rapid Rooter Plumbing, we strive to provide the friendliest and most professional plumbing services available in Sacramento. To talk about your water usage with one of our plumbing experts, call (916) 248-8783 today.

Almost every homeowner makes the mistake of delaying plumbing repairs at some point. Whether it’s a leaky faucet or something more serious, such as a clogged drain, it’s often tempting to simply ignore the problem and hope that it will go away. Unfortunately, delaying plumbing repairs can have serious consequences for your home and your wallet. Here are some reasons why you shouldn’t wait to get plumbing repairs done.
Water Damage If you suspect that your home has any plumbing damage whatsoever, it is important that you get the issue resolved with the help of a professional plumber as soon as possible, as plumbing problems are often more complicated than they initially appear. Even though you may just see a small leak or a reduction in water pressure, there may be a more serious issue lurking within your home’s plumbing. Left unattended, plumbing leaks and other problems can potentially lead to water damage and compromise the structural integrity of your home. In addition to costing even more to repair, water damage also makes your home susceptible to dangerous mold growth.
Water Waste When you have a leaking faucet, it’s hard to imagine just how much water is going to waste. After all, in most faucet leaks, the water leaks just one drop at a time. However, those drops add up significantly over time and can result in a large amount of waste. You can easily waste thousands of gallons of water over the course of a single year with just one leaky faucet. This is a staggering amount of water that you end up having to pay for. In order to avoid wasting water and having to pay higher bills, make sure that you have a professional plumber address any leaks immediately.
Even the smallest leaks can have serious consequences for your Sacramento home. In order to avoid water damage and water waste, make sure that you have all plumbing problems inspected and addressed as soon as possible.
