Corrosion on Shower Head Probably Means Replacement Necessary A customer called us because her shower head had developed a leak.

Sewer Replacement in Sacramento

Published on November 18, 2013

Clean Out Important for Servicing the Sewer Lateral The previous repairman stated that the customer did not have a clean out, so he cleared out a clog by tapping into the line. However, four years later, the man had another backup, did some digging in his yard and found that he actually did have a clean out. The clean out was worn, however, and the man wanted it replaced. We provided the replacement and it worked normally. A clean out is a point of access, so the sewer lateral – the area between  | Read More » |
