When you hire a drain cleaning company how are you sure they clean to the city sewer?

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. If your reading this article and your from a warmer climate disregard the last sentence.

Washing machine hose plumbing pipes

Sometimes basements can be confusing as to all the plumbing. There are water lines and drain lines and they all intersect each other which can make them hard to follow and sometimes even harder to fix. New plumbing originally gets installed before anything else, so at that time it’s all easy to install. Plumbers most of the time work in hard conditions and very tight spaces. Knowing exactly what to do in case of a plumbing emergency is very important. Knowing how to turn off your water in your home is very crucial when in an emergency setting. Calling a plumber when having a plumbing problem is one thing. But knowing which plumber to call is a whole different issue.


Washing machine hoses need replacing every so often and old hoses will leak after some time. The worst part about plumbing leaks is that they can happen at anytime.
