For many of us, we grew up with the privilege of effective and reliable sewer lines and plumbing. But it wasn’t always like that. In the 19th century, the distribution and processing of drinking water and wastewater was both intertwined, and inadequate, and led to constant contamination. The threat of disease and plague was a very real issue that affected (and killed) a lot of people all over the country, and cholera was one of the worst ones. Caused by ingesting contaminated water, cholera outbreaks killed millions all over the world, and over 150,000 people in America during this time.

This horrible decimation by disease (as well the important connections made between contaminated water and disease) lead to fundamental changes in our municipal sewer systems, like the installation of contained piped water supply, and eventually, combined sewer systems that used early sanitation methods to sanitize drinking water, as well is limit the toxicity of waste water. The methods slowly progressed and developed into the expansive sewer line system that runs through our homes and neighborhoods today, the sewer lines system that rely on everytime we flush.

Oily Deposits

One source of wastewater that moves through our home’s sewer line is from our kitchen sink. Regardless of how cognisant you are of limiting grease going down your drain, if you cook and clean dishes in that sink, you will simply have oily substances like fat and grease get into your sewer pipes. These types of substances cling to pipe walls and edges, and when they accumulate over time, they can constrict the flow of wastewater. Foriegn objects can also get stuck in these grease depostic, further impeding proper drainage, and potentially leading to clogged lines.

clog 5e726d9ea7bb9

Clogs and Blockages

It’s pretty easy to recognize when your sewer system has a clog or blockage. Whether it’s a toilet that won’t flush, wastewater backing up out of your drain, or gurgling sounds emitting from the drain, a clog is one of the most common problems you can have with your sewer line. Clogs and blockages can be particularly difficult to track, as they can occur in the main, or secondary lines of your sewer system; luckily, our plumbing technicians at Cupertino Plumbing utilize fiber optic camera technology to find exactly where the blockages are.

roots 5e726ede04ba6

Tree Root Infestation

Thankfully, your sewer lines run in a network under the ground, underneath your home’s foundation and your yard. However, there is a large network of tree and plant roots that run underneath your property as well, and these two underground networks can potentially collide, with some unfortunate consequences. Invasive tree roots are constantly in search of moisture, so even the smallest crack or fissure in a sewer line will attract invasive tree roots, and make any small crack, a bigger issue.

corrosion 5e726ea4300c5

Pipe Corrosion

If you think about it, your sewer pipe lines are able to withstand a number of gross, toxic, and downright corrosive substances that are funneled through them on a daily basis. But after a period of time and consistent use, even the best sewer pipes can start to corrode. With a fairly constant flow of corrosive liquid, grooves and gullies can start to appear, which weakens sewer line pipe walls, and leaves them very susceptible to breaking or cracking.

We had Cupertino Plumbing replace all of our old galvanized and cast iron drain pipes, along with installing a new water heater and two new toilets. We are very happy with the work they did. It was a major multi-day project that required cutting holes in walls and ceilings. They were pleasant, professional, and responsive. Everything works great now, and the places where they patched the walls and ceilings look nice. A really good job. We definitely will call them for any future plumbing work.

This is a fantastic company (Cupertino Plumbing), I received excellent service from Mario. We texted back and forth on various questions I had regarding my kitchen water filter system and the airgap line for my dishwasher; he was always responsive. My previous plumber walked into our home without putting on booties and was unorganized, but Mario always put booties on his shoes which I appreciated, he was knowledgeable, organized, did very high quality work, communicates well, smiled a lot and was happy, and is now my go to guy for all future plumbing needs. Mario is best plumber I’ve known.

Cupertino Plumbing just replumbed our whole house and rebuilt our drainage system. They were efficient, communicative, and timely every day and went to great lengths to keep things clean and tidy. Every afternoon they would set expectations about the next day and every day they did what they say they would do which we very much appreciated. For big plumbing jobs they quality of workmanship and service can’t be beat.

Cupertino Plumbing is not the cheapest out there. They are on the competitive or expensive side. The reason to call them is for their outstanding professionalism, and the fact that they have a lot of people who can be there really soon when you need them.
