Drains & Sewer Lines

Sanitary Sewer

 

A sanitary sewer is the system of pipes used to transport human waste and greywater.  The sewer lines are part of the sanitary sewer system that is comprised of the drain line, main line, and lateral line. 

 

 

Drain Line

 

  • Receives all waste and greywater discharged by a home’s plumbing fixtures such as toilets, tubs, and sinks and carries the waste to where is connects with the sewer line

 

Sewer Line

 

  • Removes waste and greywater from your home and carries it to where it connects to the main line

 

Main Line

  • Collects sewerage and greywater from multiple buildings and carries it to the sewage treatment plant

All plumbing fixtures and appliances that connect to the drainage system should drain instantaneously and without restriction.  To help ensure the free flow of greywater and sewage, GPS Plumbing, a full service plumbing company, offers a comprehensive and full set of drain and sewer line services.

About Clogs

 

One of the most common drainage system problems is clogs.  A clog is an obstruction in a sewer or drain that inhibits or impedes the flow of sewage and greywater to the municipal sewer main. 

 

When sewer lines or drains clog or become partially blocked:

 

  • Their efficiency is reduced
  • Waste removal capabilities are significantly reduced or prevented
  • Wastewater and sewage backups into the home and thus creates an unsanitary condition

 

A clog is a very serious problem that should be considered a plumbing emergency.  If you have a clogged drain or sewer line, avoid or minimize the use of toilets, sinks, showers, and bathtubs until a professional plumber such as GPS Plumbing clears the clog. 

 

We are experts at clearing:

 

  • The most difficult drain or sewer line clog regardless its cause
  • Any drainage related stoppage regardless of its location

 

To clear a clog we use a specialty-plumbing tool with a flexible steel cable and a rotating cutting blade that spins through the drain or sewer line/pipe.  The mechanical action of the tool cuts through the clogs and cleans the drain or sewer line right down to its inner walls.
