How To Prevent Sewer and Drain Line Problems
Many of the sewer and drain problems we encounter are the result of neglected or misused plumbing systems. For example, putting grease down kitchen drains, allowing trees to grow near the sewer main and not using strainers in shower and sink drains are all an invitation to clogged drains and backed up sewer lines.
There are several steps you can take to ensure your drains remain free flowing. First, fill up sinks with hot water and let them drain to fill the pipes with water and push debris into the main line. Avoid using harsh chemical drain cleaning products that can damage your home and present a health hazard.
Second, ensure that kitchen and bathroom sinks have strainers to limit the amount of food waste and hair that goes down the drain.
Finally, having your sewer and drain lines regularly inspected can catch the small problems before they become a major problem. A video camera sewer line inspection will find problems like breaks or cracks, tree root intrusion and more.
