Customer Testimonials - Reviews For Portland Plumbing Plus

Water Line Leak

Thomas
Beaverton, Oregon          
We had water dripping through a first floor ceiling light fixture located underneath a second floor bathroom. Our home warranty service's plumber was unable to come out for another 24 hours. We contacted Portland Plumbing Plus LLC and they sent Scotty. Scotty was able to identify where the leak was with very little removal of the ceiling. Just as he was examining the junction where the leak was, the joint came apart. He repaired that junction and tactfully identified a potential future issue. We are so thankful for this information so that repairs can be done now and future leaks avoided. Thanks Scotty for your excellent work and professionalism. We highly recommend Portland Plumbing Plus LLC.

Sewage Backing up Into House or Yard

Question
BACKGROUND: We have a septic system. Sewage was flowing out into the yard. The clean out was found to have the cap missing, which was replaced. Once the cap was replaced, the sewage began to back up in the house. When we would wash dishes, sewage would bubble up into the bathtub, the toilet would not go down, the bathroom sink would drain slow and gurgle. First plumber ran snake, said it was not clogged by us, but that the piping was laid wrong. Next plumber dug up where piping runs to septic tank, said there was grease clogging, also another fitting (? I don't really know proper terminology) was broke off--so said it wasn't draining right.
QUESTION: How long would it take for grease to clog system enough to back it up? We have lived here two years and never put grease down drain. Could this be from previous inhabitants? System has not been serviced since we've lived here, could that be problem? thank you

Answer
Sewage backing up into your yard or house does not have a direct relationship with "how long it would take for grease to clog system enough to back it up". In your situation, there are two most common causes of the back up. The first possibility is that your "out-going line/lines is/are clogged", and the second is that your "outlet baffle on the out-going side of your sewage tank is clogged" or "not functioning properly"

To determine what's responsible for the blockage, your "Distribution Box" (D-box) needs to be dug up. If the distribution box is dry, then know that the blockage is in the outlet baffle. And if the Distribution Box is flooded, then the out-going pipe/pipes connected from the Distribution Box and leading to the...
