It’s so important when you hire a sewer and drain cleaning company to unclog your drain line you make sure they rooter it all the way to the city sewer. I’ve heard time after time again that companies only open drain lines and not run the snake all the way to city sewer. If your sewer line is longer then 100ft long and the sewer company only runs one real chances are is that they only have 95ft total and won’t make it all the way to the city sewer. If your main sewer line is over 100ft and you know it, make sure you tell that to whatever company you hire. If you don’t know how long your sewer line is then the plumbing company that services you will find out. Call your local city public works department and find out information about your sewer line.
Cleaning several sewer lines each week it’s important to clean the entire length of the line. No two sewer lines are the same, each and every sewer line is different. Sewer lines shift at their own pace and move differently depending what’s around them. For example tree’s, sidewalks, hills, etc. Sewer lines do have to be camera inspected from time to time and the drain cleaner will bring that to your attention at that time.
Most people clean or auger out their sewer lines once a year to maintain against heavy tree roots growing inside their line. This is very smart and most that perform annual maintenance are in good shape longer than those who don’t. Make sure that every 3-5 years you camera your sewer line to make sure the condition of your line is holding up. Digging or repairing any section of pipe in the winter costs more.
