A drain with water

Louisville Drain and Sewer Services


Drains and sewers, allow Louisville households to efficiently dispose of waste and wastewater while protecting the home from excess water on the property.

A home’s private sewer system is made up of pipes for both drains and sewers, which join municipal sanitary sewers and storm sewers. Drain pipes run through the home and connect to residential sewers buried underground. Home sewers extend across the property and join a shared sanitary sewer which carries wastewater to a nearby sewage treatment plant, while storm drains handle the collection of stormwater and runoff, diverting it away from the home into the storm sewers so it may flow to a nearby water source.

When these systems suffer clogs or damage, homeowners may experience unwelcome drainage issues in plumbing fixtures throughout the home. The right drain cleaning and plumbing service can be a lifesaver, providing help when needed most. Treatment for tough clogs is completed quickly and repairs for sewer systems are performed with little disruption.

Put an End to Slow Drainage and Backed Up Drains

Poor drainage from plumbing fixtures throughout the home creates frustration for many a Louisville homeowner – you’re forced to flush several times, or it takes a long while for the sink or tub to empty.

Our technicians always wear shoe covers in the home and use drop cloths wear necessary, then our work area is cleaned up prior to completion of our work.

How a Plumber Unclogs a Drain 

Drainage issues are a hassle for homeowners, especially when they seem to reoccur right after one another. As draining pipes collect foreign materials or pipe material begins to wear out over time, you’ll experience slow drainages or stopped-up drains more often. When this occurs, you need to have the pipes cleared.

Jarboe's Plumbing, Heating & Cooling performs complete drain clearing, repair, and replacement services. Before any treatment is recommended, we search for the problem’s location using sewer camera inspection, which also shows us what sort of drain or sewer issue we are up against. These search results allow us to recommend the most effective services to remove a blockage or remedy damage to a pipe.

Repair and Replacement for Sewers 

The main pipes that make up residential sewers collect grease, foreign objects, hair, and other materials over time. These materials as well as intrusions through broken pipes, like dirt, rocks, or tree roots, may fully block the flow of wastewater to the nearby sanitary sewer. Hydro jetting is used to bust up any gathered material and force it out of the pipe. Damage to sewers mean repairs or pipe replacement is often necessary, which now can be done through non-invasive trenchless pipe bursting. Jarboe's Plumbing, Heating & Cooling will find the solution that provides the least disruption for your family.

A Louisville Home’s Sewers and Drains

Sewers and drains are not the same thing. They do work together to form the drainage arm of a home’s plumbing system. All homes have a sanitary sewer system for the removal of wastewater, and some homes may also have storm drains and sewers to handle water on the property.

Each fixture has its own drain, which links to the main drain line running through the home. Outside the structure, this drain pipe meets the sewer line. Also called a lateral drain, the sewer line extends from the home out to the municipal sanitary sewers.  The sanitary sewers carry wastewater to a nearby plant for sewage treatment.

Stormwater and snow melt in high volumes can be damaging to a home’s foundation – storm sewers provide protection for the home while routing untreated water back to natural waterways. Storm drains can include gutter drains as well as floor and trench drains installed on outdoor surfaces such as a patio or driveway. Off the property, storm drains are commonly installed on curbs or in culverts. Storm sewers collect stormwater from private drains and those installed on public property, sending water back to local creeks, streams, and rivers.

Expert Tips for Drain and Sewer Protection

Some homeowners’ first instinct is to call a plumber when they notice signs of problems with home sewers or drains. A professional’s help isn’t always needed to solve the problem – Jarboe's Plumbing, Heating & Cooling offers some tips to help you clear up sewer and drain problems on your own. Feel free to try them before you call to schedule service, but if you’re not comfortable doing so, don’t hesitate to contact us.

Identifying a blocked sewer line 

  • If you think it is possible your main sewer line is blocked, it’s important to stop using the home’s plumbing until the problem is fixed. Use the main shutoff valve to turn off water.

  • Check your home’s plumbing fixtures – are all not draining correctly, just one, or just those in one area of the home?

  • If the issue seems isolated to one fixture or one room’s fixtures, the clog may sit in the fixture’s drain line or the pipe run that connects these fixtures to the main drain line. You can try using a plunger to clear these clogs, but if drainage is poor throughout the home, it’s probably a sewer line clog and you need to call a plumber.

Clearing a clog 

  • For a toilet clog, heat from hot water can dissolve materials lodged in the drain. Boil a pot of water and hold it at waist height as you pour it into the bowl. Allow it to sit until cooled then flush.
  • Clogs in sink drains can sometimes be loosened with soap. A quart of dish soap poured into the drain can lubricate the clog so it slips through the line next time you turn on the faucet.
