How to Find Your Sewer Line

June 08 / 2020

Since most of your sewer line is hidden beneath the floor or buried in the ground, it can be challenging to locate a wastewater pipe. However, it is sometimes necessary for homeowners to find their sewer pipes either to retrieve an item that was lost in the drain line, or because of a recurring plumbing problem. At Rooter Hero Plumbing, we provide quality residential and commercial plumbing services for clients throughout California and Arizona. We understand how frustrating it can be to find a hidden sewer line and wish to offer some suggestions. Locate Your Septic Tank or Public Sewer Line Since your sewer line is ultimately connected to the waste management system, one of the fastest ways to find your main sewer line is to locate the exact area of your septic tank or public utility pipes. Sometimes, these areas will be marked, in other cases, you might need to consult with your home’s blueprints or the local municipalities. Call 811 Before You Dig Do you need to locate your sewer line to avoid damage during a construction or home improvement project? Then call 811. This is the national “Call Before You Dig” hotline number, where property owners can request that utility lines be marked with flags or paint before starting a project that involves digging underground. Not only will they show you where your sewer line is, they can also point out the main water line and gas pipes that may exist beneath your yard.
