Water and sewer lines play a critical role in every aspect of your home’s plumbing system, so it’s important to keep them clear of debris and to deal with any damage to them quickly. Find out more about the role of pipes and sewers in your home.
There are two main types of pipe lines that run to and from your home to provide you with effortless water supply and wastewater management. Water pipes lead into your home to supply water at the turn of a tap. Sewer pipes channel wastewater away from your home to a public sewer system or a septic tank.
This extensive network of pipes uses countless joints, fittings, fixtures and appliances to do its job and keep your water circulation working. With so many intricate parts working hard all the time, there is bound to be wear and tear or blockages that can disrupt your service. The result might be sewage backups, damage to your pipes, or clogged lines and drains.

Depending on where you live, who built your home, and how old your home is, your water pipes may be made of any one of a variety of materials. PvC (polyvinyl chloride) is common, as are polyethylene, iron or copper. From kitchens to bathrooms and from laundry to lawns, these pipes supply all of the water you use every day for drinking, cooking, bathing and cleaning. Hidden in the walls and ceilings of your home and pressurized to give you reliable water flow, these pipes are subject to leaking if parts wear out over time or become damaged. Such leaks can cause water damage in your home, costly waste of water, and low water pressure. A professional plumber can investigate your problems and find the right solution.
Wastewater includes any used water that leaves your home, such as from your bathrooms, kitchen or washing machine, and it is whisked away by sewer pipes. Typically made of PvC (polyvinyl chloride) or polyethylene, these pipes are often installed on an incline so that they can take advantage of gravity to assist in keeping wastewater flowing away from your home to a sewer system or septic tank. If your landscaping has poor grading, you may find yourself with sewage backups happening on your lawn. Like any pipes, they are subject to leaks through damage or regular wear and tear. Since sewer leaks are particularly unpleasant, be sure to seek help from a qualified plumber to resolve problems quickly.
