Sewer Drains Versus Septic Drains

There are two types of main line drains – sewer or septic. And owners are highly aware of whether their property is connected to one or the other. If a home is connected to a septic system (most of which are known as a gravity system, including a drain field and holding tank), they have the advantage of not having to pay city sewer fees.

However, Washington residents are responsible for emptying and cleaning their tank every three to five years.

Both systems require professional plumbing services to help keep pipes and drain systems working properly, fixing leaks, breaks, and clogs in the pipes, as well as optional weatherization work.

Without our services, a faulty line could lead to a backup of wastewater in the home, pooling in the yard, and serious health and environmental hazards. So, don’t hesitate to call us if your sewer or septic drain needs the immediate attention of a licensed plumber.

Main Line and Secondary Drains

Secondary drains refer to shower drains, sink and dishwasher drains, and floor drains. They all lead to the same, main line drain that carries waste water away from the property into a septic holding tank or city sewer where it’s treated.

If the issue occurs in a secondary drain, costs and work involved tend to be much lower. However, if there is a blockage or damage in the main line, it interferes with every secondary drain and could mean not only a higher price tag but the inconvenience of your home or business’s  water system being put on hold.

John’s Plumbing & Pumps responds to every type of septic or sewer drain issue promptly and with an approach that puts the property owner first. We offer financing options so you don’t have to worry about upfront costs or other complications related to covering parts and labor. Our licensed plumbers also help you care for your system so you don’t have to worry about repeat incidents.

Maintaining Your Main line

Here are the top five tips for keeping your sewer system working for you year-round:

  1. If you have a septic system, have it inspected every year
  2. Consider your household size and usage and have your tank pumped every three to five years
  3. Whether you have a septic system or are connected to a city sewer, use water-saving techniques
  4. Avoid putting trash in toilets. Even “flushable” wipes do not belong in toilet drains
  5. Do the work to keep your drain clear. Call a plumber for drain cleaning, or use a snake. Chemical drain cleaners only exacerbate the issue.
