The key to a properly operating sewer and drain system is regular cleaning. Even if there isn’t a
clog or major problem yet, call us to check and maintain your sewer system. Like everything
else in your home, your sewer system needs to be kept clean.
But when your pipes get clogged, we can help. Kids flush toys. Kitchen drains get clogged with food and grease. Tree roots grow into your sewer lines.

Sewer Line Repair
If something smells funny in your house, you may have a sewer line problem. We’ll inspect your floor drain to make sure the trap is working correctly. We’ll use our equipment and technology to find the source of the problem and solve it right away.
Sewer gas can be dangerous, so we want to deal these types of problems as soon as possible. We understand that sewer line and sewer tank problems can be stressful and uncomfortable. Call Bay Water Plumbing to get your plan in motion.
Water Line Issues
If your home has galvanized water lines, your water flow may be weaker than normal. This is because lime and calcium build up inside your pipes. This decreases the volume of water available when using multiple fixtures. For example, your water pressure may lower when you shower and run the dishwasher at the same time.
You may also notice a change in color of your water. If it’s brown, it may indicate rust in your pipes. You could have a leak. The only way to know for sure is to have it inspected by a professional.
Inside or outside your home, we have the knowledge and equipment to repair and re-pipe water lines. Give us a call at 510-930-3312.
Sewer Line Clogs
If your sewer line clogs more than once a year, that could indicate a larger problem, such as a broken pipe or roots in your line. Either way, we have the camera equipment to see inside the sewer lines and determine the exact problem. Once we’ve inspected it, we will make recommendations with budget, so you can choose the right techniques to unclog even the toughest clogs.

Will definitely recommend Alvaro for any plumbing needs.”

Pipe & Sewer Line FAQs
There are a variety of reasons drains can clog. In the kitchen, grease that goes down the drain can build up. Solid foods can corrode your cast iron. In the bathroom, baby wipes (or any “flushable” wipes) can cause clogs. The best way to identify why your pipes are clogged is to call a professional plumber.
Pipes aren’t typically pliable enough to shift as the earth shifts. Instead, they develop a “belly,” or a larger section of pipe. This collects solids over time and can overload your pipes, causing them to break. Also, we often see tree roots grown into sewer lines. Additionally, main sewer lines can get damaged by roots and will need to be replaced.
To avoid sewer pipe breakage from tree roots, we recommend having a professional plumber run a snake through your sewer drains every six months to keep them clean and clear.
Copper and PEX (plastic) are both very good materials. PEX is newer and used by most modern builders. The lifetime on PEX is 50 to 75 years. However, copper is often used inside the walls of a home. In some places, the code requires it. The lifetime on copper pipes is 70 to 85 years.
Bay Water Plumbing has experience with all types of piping, including main line extensions, remodels, moving toilets, adding showers, etc.
Everything we do is guaranteed to be up to code. Our work comes with a warranty, so you can be sure that once we fix the problem, it stays fixed.
If your sewer lines are accessible through a crawl space (most common), access for repiping work is relatively easy. If your home sits on a concrete slab, and your leak is under your house or in cement (less common), we will have to dig and/or break through cement to get to the line. We can also offer what a reroute, where we run the new lines in the attic for a complete repipe of the water lines.
We use two types of materials for repiping. Copper can be used throughout the home. PEX (plastic) is made for hot and cold water. We typically use copper inside the walls and PEX from there.
