Drain and Sewer Tips from the Experts
Many people pick up the phone and call for service when something isn’t working right. If you follow the guide below, you may find a solution that you can do yourself. If you are uncomfortable with checking any of these things then you should call for service and let one of our drain and sewer technicians perform an inspection.
Is your sewer line blocked?
- The first thing to do in the event that your sewer line is blocked is to shut off all water and don’t use any plumbing in the house until the blockage is cleared or you can isolate the problem.
- Start checking plumbing fixtures in the home. It is very important that you don’t force anything else through a clogged sewer line.
- If you suspect your sewer line is blocked but not cracked or broken, you might be able to unclog waste and debris with a plunger.
Clearing out clogged pipes
- Try pouring hot / boiling water into your toilet from waist height. The heat from the water may help dissolve the clog.
- Pour a quart of dawn soap down a clogged drain. The soap surrounds the clog and lubricates it so that next time you run water the clog should flow out.
Prevent future plumbing problems!
- Chemical drain cleaners may be able to fix a clog, but they can cause irreparable damage to your drains. Avoid using these products if possible.
- Avoid pouring oil and grease down your drains.
- Grease, bones, animal fats and skins shouldn’t go down your drain. Your garbage disposal isn’t designed to handle these items.
- Be careful what you flush down your toilet. The drains aren’t meant for heavy duty products like paper towels and sanitary napkins.
Be aware of where your main sewer line is located
- Do not place any plants with extensive root systems nearby. Additionally, keep all root systems properly watered.
- Roots will usually only extend toward the pipes under your home if they are looking for a water source and the sewer line can provide that source.
