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.

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.


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.
