Sewer System Backups in San Diego

Plumber sewage pipes

Got plumbing problems? Are they leading to a sewer backup?

Backups are some of the worst issues residential property owners have. They’re difficult to fix without professional help. In fact, most DIY efforts never address the core problems.

With ALMCO, you get a different treat. We’ll take care of plumbing problems that threaten the safety of your pipes. We can deal with debris and tree roots while repairing sewer and septic systems. We also work with many property layouts. In fact, we’ve perfected the science of fixing backups, and in record time!

We work 24/7. We can adapt to emergencies, arriving and fixing in a timely manner!

Are There Warning Signs of Sewer Backups?

There are several. They include:

  • 🔹 Backups from a shower, toilet, or sink drain (or) multiple drains
  • 🔹 Sewage smells from drains in your home (or) close to home
  • 🔹 Drain backups that involve a toilet
  • 🔹 Gurgling noises from toilets or drains
  • 🔹 Water pools close to basement floor drains

If you detect any of those, be sure to call us for an inspection.

How can I prevent a back up?

Regular maintenance is a starting point. This includes inspecting the tank and its pumps, in addition to plants surrounding it (for root problems). Constant maintenance is a service we offer. ALMCO arrives at your home fast to contain backup problems. We’ll diagnose then fix the main sewer issues. From there, we’ll offer the best long-term solutions.

Sewer backup plumbing services

Drain Cleaning and Rooter Work

This includes fixing pipes damaged by tree roots. We’ll punch through the roots to clear the blocked sewer, restoring its functionality. We’ll then assess the gravity of the tree root issue, while recommending long-term solutions.

Hydrojetting

A long-term fix for pipe cleaning. This technique uses pressurized water to clear obstacles. The jets can eliminate builds up of tree roots, grease, and debris.

Pipe Bursting

An excellent permanent fix. Pipe bursting uses hydraulic tools to break the sewer pipe while also installing a new pipe.

Pipe Lining

A solution for water leaks. The entire pipe is lined with a sleeve to seal any cracks. The line can be adjusted to certain sections of the pipe. This is a trenchless method, so it works around walls and other structures.

Routine Maintenance

We offer constant inspections and drain-cleaning sessions for our clients. Our routine inspections aim to clear grease and debris buildups in residential pipes. They also eliminate roots from unlined pipes before causing clogs.

Septic System Backup

Septic tank backups are rare. Regardless, they come with problems that threaten your home’s water supply. ALMCO plumbing can handle septic backups for you. We provide experienced plumbers that work with backups at all stages. With ALMCO, you can save replacement costs for a new system, while ensuring no problems around the clock!

Detecting a Septic System Back Up

Warning signs include the following:

  • 🔹 Sewage backup (with odor) in drains/toilets
  • 🔹 Slow running drains in multiple houses
  • 🔹 Wastewater seeping close to your septic tank
  • 🔹 Lush grass over the septic tank – especially in dry/hot weather
  • 🔹 Weed/algae growing near your house (caused by discharge of septic waste)
  • 🔹 Bad odors throughout your home

    Vlad & Almco have my plumbing business permanently. I feel that they are the best plumbers in San Diego County. They've served my family well, both on large below slab sewer and pipe lining projects and small important upgrades to shower cartridges. It feels great to use them because they not only do a great job, they have solid values and a wonderful vision for the future growth of their business. I feel good using them because their work is excellent and I want them to succeed with their business vision. It will be great to see the company expand so that many others can benefit from their skill set and business values as well.
    Wonderful experience with Almco Plumbing. Tony was professional, punctual, efficient, and kind. He explained everything very well and finished the job thoroughly and quickly. I received a text when he was on his way and he also called to confirm. I am very grateful to have found Almco and really appreciate the great service Tony provided. I will definitely use them again! Highly recommend for anyone needing a knowledgeable, reliable plumber.

    Jorge from Almco Plumbing came right on time with a text and courtesy call. He was able to repair a leak from the bathtub spout and repair all 3 faucets and show us exactly what the problem was. He was very knowledgeable and friendly! Almco was referred to us by my sister who also used them just last week and they did a great repair job for her leaking toilet. I would absolutely recommend them and would call them again for any repair needs!

    I don't normally write reviews but I absolutely want to give Almco Plumbing and owner, Paul, specifically recognition. I was doing a complete renovation as a first time condo buyer. This process was very overwhelming to say the least. I did extensive research and met with at least 5 contractors for every specialty/project. Paul was by far the most organized, prepared, and knowledgeable. He came with copies of his business licenses upon meeting. Did an extensive review and took time to explain what needed to be completed. He quoted me a fair price and stayed true to that. Not only did Paul help me with plumbing, but he also guided me when I had trouble with other contractors or something didn't work out. When another contractor fell through, Paul made calls and helped me find honest, reliable replacements who's work I was also completely satisfied with. The plumbing work was completed spectacularly, but the customer service and willingness to go above and beyond the basic scope of plumbing is where this company shines!!! The search stops here, go with ALMCO!!! THANK YOU PAUL!!!!

    Danial was fantastic, did an inspection to check why I’ve been smelling mildew smell from my pumps. He did a thorough check, cleaned hair out of my pipes and even scoped out the vents from the roof with a camera. All for the cost of the diagnostic. He didn’t find anything to fix beyond that (thank goodness), but I feel like it was well worth the value of the diagnostic visit…which was the most competitive rate I got for a plumber visit. Will be using this company again.

    We asked Almco to come out and do a sewer inspection on a property we are in the process of buying. Vlad came out right on schedule and did a very thorough inspection that found some issues that the previous homeowner didn't even know about. Thank you Vlad and Almco for saving us from a possible sewage line problem that could be a lot more expensive down the road!

    The best experience I ever had with any plumbing company. I will most definitely use the services offered by Almco when and if future needs arise. Highly recommend it!
    Helped us navigate a complicated issue for an old toilet/plumbing. Were honest that pricing would be cheaper to buy a new toilet than to reorder the part—gave pricing for both. Our issue was further complicated by having a rear-assembly toilet, which are not easy to find—they helped us source this. Actual service of installation was timely, fast & professional. Would recommend & use again.

    The technician was punctual & tried various avenues to solve our clogged toilet. Ultimately the toilet had to be replaced. Amazingly, the technician allowed us to go buy a new toilet & replaced it during the same visit. We’re so thankful to him, especially because we only have 1 bathroom. We definitely recommend Almco Plumbing!
