Sewer Line Problems to Watch Out for During Summer
Summer is the peak season for repairs. The combination of extreme heat and excessive water usage strains sewer lines, often causing them to break or become clogged. Most sewer line problems require the immediate attention of a professional plumber in Lake Elsinore, CA, so be sure to call A.M. Plumbing & Rooter once you spot the following red flags:
Tree Root Intrusion
Trees and shrubs are actively growing during the warm months, and their roots can invade and damage sewer lines. We recommend checking trees around and close to your property for root growth. You may also hire plumbing services for an in-depth inspection. We insert a specialized camera into the pipes during the process to determine if tree roots have penetrated the system.
Another common sewer line problem during summer that requires prompt plumbing repairs is clogging due to overuse. The more you use your plumbing, the higher the chances of hair, grease, soap scum, and other debris blocking your pipes. This can lead to slow drainage and backups. To prevent this issue, be sure to practice good plumbing habits. For example, don’t use your toilet as a garbage can, and don’t pour grease or oil down the drain.
Backups Caused by Summer Storms
In rare cases, your sewer system may back up due to summer storms. Worse, it can flood your basement or crawlspace. You can lower the risk of this emergency plumbing issue occurring with routine inspection and maintenance to ensure your sewer line is flowing freely. It also pays to have a sump pump installed to avoid potential flooding.

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!!
