Dealing With Sewer Backup Issues

plumber in Murrieta, CA

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.

At A.M. Plumbing & Rooter, we are the trusted plumbing company for sewer repair and replacement services. You can count on us to arrive on time, provide you with an honest assessment, and charge you a fair price. To learn more about how to safely deal with a sewer backup, give us a call or fill out the online form.
