Keeping Charles County’s Sewer Lines in Shape For Over 30 Years

Many don’t realize how much responsibility they have for their plumbing. Homeowners are responsible for the sewer line leading from their home to the main sewer lateral that connects under the street. So, if your sewer line backs up, it’s up to you to get this fixed. 

Luckily, you have help. We can assist with anything from drain cleaning, inspections to repairs and replacements. Genevie Plumbing knows Waldorf and Charles County sewer mains like no one else, so we can get you taken care of fast!

Main Sewer Line Issues

You first need to know that sewer stoppage is an emergency issue. If your toilet doesn’t flush or sewage is rising from the shower then you’re more than likely facing sewer stoppage issues. 

Give us a call immediately to start probing the problem and working on correcting the issue. We see this happen all too often, and it typically narrows down to the following issues:

Clogs

This can be from flushing the wrong items down the drain. The things we see cause drains are most often wipes, paper towels, feminine products, fats, oils, and grease. All items that will not disintegrate with water. Although the problem may not occur right away, over time, you can have a big problem.

Tree Roots

Trees in your front or backyard can also create plumbing problems. Roots can begin to grow into sewer lines that have even the slightest crack in them. This typically will occur at the junction of the home’s drainage line and the municipal tap line.

Damaged Lines

If your sewer lines have broken or suffered a “belly,” then your system won’t drain properly. This can be caused by the age of the sewer, type of sewer piping, or proper installation.

How To Detect Sewer Line Leaks

If you’re wondering how you can prevent these problems, we have some tips for you to keep in mind. Keep an eye (or nose) out for these warning signs to fix the problems before it’s too late!

Overflowing/Clogging

Overflowing and clogging don’t just affect your toilet. This includes your bathtub and sinks as well. If any of these are overflowing or draining slowly even after an attempt to clear them, this may be the start of serious sewer problems
