Dealing With Sewer Backup Issues
No homeowner wants to deal with a sewer backup, but this common problem requires a prompt response. Sewage backups can happen anywhere at any time, and it’s important to know what to do and when. A plumber in Murrieta, CA, from A.M. Plumbing & Rooter is sure to offer a rapid response when you have a sewer problem. Use these tips if this unfortunate event occurs in your home.
Turn Off the Water Supply
When you have a sewage backup, turn off the water supply at your home’s main water line. This prevents any more water from entering your home’s sewer line. If you’re not sure of how to do it, or if the knob is stuck, you can shut off the water supply at each fixture or appliance. Our plumbing services team will arrive at your home as quickly as possible to get started with the repairs.
Start the Cleanup
You can save money by doing your own cleanup after a sewer backup. You will likely need to rent a dumpster. Our emergency plumbing team can give you references for local professional cleaners.
Stop Using Fixtures
When the sewage has backed up into your home, stop using any water. Don’t flush the toilet, wash your hands, or cycle the dishwasher. Doing so will only add to the sewage overflow and mess in your home. If you need to take care of these personal activities, you’ll have to do so in another location until we complete your home’s plumbing repairs.

Here's What Our Customers Are Saying About Us.
This afternoon we found a leak after disconnecting our refrigerator. We called A.M. Plumbing. Their response time was excellent. They arrived to our house within an hour after calling them. When the plumber got to the house, he was able to rapidly diagnose and fix the problem. He was very professional, did a great job and they charged us a very reasonable fee. I would recommend A.M. Plumbing to anyone that needs plumbing repairs. Thank you, again, for a job well done!
I have called A.M. plumbing twice. Both times the service was excellent. He was able to talk to me about the problem and offer his recommendations. I found him to be trustworthy and reliable, which is what I am looking for in a plumber. I would highly recommend A.M.Dan Steele
Alex and his team are by far the easiest to work with! From the time I spoke with Kristen(sp?) to the time the job was complete they spoke to me like a person and not like I'm an idiot. I had a whole house repipe and an awesome never run out of hot water tankless water heater installed. They were professional and cleaned up after themselves. So glad to have found them on here and will be sure to pass along my experience with them to others. Thank you Alex and the team at AM, our family of 5 can finally have hot showers again!!
