It’s easier for a homeowner to think of their home plumbing system this way: water in and waste out. There’s a line of clean water going into your house known as the main water line, and then there’s the line of wastewater heading out of your house, known as the sewer or septic line. Every single home requires both of these sets because we make water dirty by default and must send it off to be processed or cleaned.
So, you can tell why we’d be concerned if someone’s main water line was getting contaminated from a leak in a drain or sewer line. Contamination is no joke, and our plumbers in Gretna, LA take it very seriously. If you’ve got a leak in your sewer drain, drain pipe, or another wastewater pipe, then you’re going to want a professional to take a look and ensure it’s not contaminating your freshwater line.
