A sewer drain is a pipe that takes waste from a home or building into the sewage system. Sewer drain problems can quickly lead to major plumbing issues, property damage, and even threats to your family’s health and safety. If you suspect that your sewer drain line is damaged or clogged, you don’t have any time to waste.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are sewer and storm drains the same?

No. Sewers move waste from homes and buildings to wastewater treatment facilities. Storm drains move rainwater runoff from streets and gutters to nearby bodies of water.

How deep are sewer drains?

It depends on the local climate. In some places, sewer drains are buried just 18 inches down. In colder climates, sewer drains might be buried six feet deep to prevent the pipe from freezing during the winter months.
