Preventing Sewer Line Clogs and Damage
Reducing the risk of clogged drains means being careful about what goes down the drain. Avoid flushing things like cotton swabs, gauze, tampons, maxi pads, diapers, paper towels and other material that cannot break down easily. Also, “flushable” wipes will not really degrade enough to be flushed down the toilet. Other materials that can cause problems include grease, paint and chemicals, including drain cleaning products.
Preventing Tree Root Damage
One of the most common causes of damage to sewer lines is tree root intrusion. Because roots are always seeking water and nutrients, even a small crack in a sewer line can invite problems. Having a video sewer line inspection is cheap insurance. If a video inspection finds that roots have found their way into a sewer lateral, the damage should be repaired before a sewer line failure occurs.
Have questions about your sewer line? Call ABC Plumbing, Heating, Cooling and Electric. We offer video sewer line inspections to find the little problems before they lead to major repairs. If repairs are needed, we can use the latest trenchless technology to avoid digging up your yard to fix damaged sewer lines.
