Sewer backups can happen at any time and can be caused by several things, including:

Clogs: A blocked or clogged sewer line will restrict wastewater from running to the local sewer system, causing sewage to back up into your home or business. Clogs can be caused by toilet paper, hair, small objects and more.

Tree root: Tree roots grow into cracked or exposed sewer lines, creating a blockage and causing a sewer to backup.

Faulty sewer lines: When sewer lines are cracked, broken, or not aligned correctly, clogs can occur rather easily, especially if the sewer line is old.

Heavy floods: Most city sewage lines can be flooded with water when it rains. When these lines cannot take in any more water, sewage can start to back up in homes and businesses.

For sewage backups caused by the main underground sewer pipe, which is normally located further from the homeowner’s property, the city will shall be responsible for the repairs. However, it is normally the homeowner’s responsibility to fix any sewer line problems or sewer backups. It is possible that your homeowner’s insurance may cover damage caused by a sewer line backup.

Top 5 Plumbing FAQ

Does my heating system need maintenance?

Yes, all heating systems and equipment such as a conventional boiler or tankless water heater requires yearly scheduled maintenance. Best City Plumbers will ensure the systems are operating properly, efficiently, and safely. We will perform any necessary adjustments or repairs on the unit.

Is a tankless water heater a better choice over a conventional storage tank?

Tankless water heaters are a great choice, their operating costs are low and because they use little energy, they can be installed in very small or tight spaces. Additionally, they provide an endless supply of hot water.

The benefits of a conventional storage tank are low upfront installation cost, require very little maintenance, require no electricity to operate on many models and  repairs are less expensive than a tankless water heater.

Can I use Liquid Plumber or Drano?

We say NO! these types of chemicals normally do more harm to  old steel and cast iron drain lines.

How can I tell if I need a new hot water tank?

If your hot water tank is over 10 years old, its most likely not very efficient and should be replaced. If your tank is making strange noises such as a gurgling or popping sound, chances are sediment has built-up and it is only a matter of time before it leaks.

When temperatures are not consistent, the components may be worn out and it’s a good time to replace it.

Is your company a fully licensed plumbing contractor?

Yes, we are fully licensed and insured to do work in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
