The Guys Garage
The garage is suppose to be a space for a guy to be able to get away from everything and relax. Weather it’s working on your car or any other project. The term I’ve heard for these rooms are called the “Man Cave”. Weather your man cave is the garage an office or a room in the basement all that matters is that space is entirely 100% your own.
Being in the plumbing and drain cleaning business for so long I’ve seen some pretty awesome garage layouts. I’ve always been one to park in my garage and use it for storage but some people have other ideas. I’ve never seen this garage but a friend of mine brought it to my attention.

How to remove tree roots from your sewer system
Almost every sewer line has one problem or another weather you are aware of the issue or not. Getting rid of tree roots is easier before any issue arises.
We all know that trees grow roots and sometime they can get in the way of our sewer system, which ultimately can cause major headaches. Tree roots are nasty and the longer they sit in ones line the longer it takes to remove them. Major sewer root problems call for a camera inspection along side the cleaning process. Getting every strand of root is not the goal, but getting the problem areas are. Sewer lines are put together in sections which means that in every joint you can have root intrusion.
Don’t panic next time your sewer line backs up. Call the professionals ASAP and have the job done right. Drain cleaning needs to be done properly and with the right machinery. Our company see’s homeowners open up their own sewer lines with wimpy cables and blades. The rental machines don’t compare to what the professionals use. Time after time we have pulled out cables that homeowners have lost in their own sewer lines. Just like any other profession drain cleaning needs to be done the right way or major excavation costs will hit you unexpectedly.
Ken’s Sewer Service is here for your help.
Root intrusion only get worse, not better.
Never cover up clean-outs
STOP COVERING UP YOUR CLEAN OUTS.
The worst possible mistake is to cover up your clean-outs to access drains. Main sewer openings in basements are being covered up with carpet, tile and who knows what else. People are forgetting that these lines need to be cleaned out from time to time. Installing a clean-out access panel to hide the pipe is the way to go. Without a clean-out to clean your pipe the job will either take longer or not get done the proper way. Don’t wasting your money and be smart before covering over a stack clean-out in the wall or anywhere for that matter.
Call your local plumber today and ask before you act.

Frozen outside exterior water source (sillcock)
This picture to me is just fascinating to me. Our company had a client that had a drippy outside exterior sillcock/hose bib and this is what happens. Temperatures in the negatives will cause this to happen to you if your faucet isn’t sealed tight. If your faucets drips before winter get it repaired and replaced so this doesn’t cause you major damage. All it takes is 32 degrees and colder to really make this happen.

Be aware of what you have and what can possibly go wrong in the different temperature changes. If this pipe was not caught it time it would have possibly busted and leaked inside causing a huge mess and possibly major expense.
Flooding in or around your property can lead to major issues including mold.

Plumbing is definitely a 24/7 business. A plumbing issue can arise at any time and for that reason plumbing and drain cleaning companies have to be prepared. It’s never fun having to deal with a plumbing leak or a sewer line clogged especially if it’s on the weekend or a holiday. Most companies I know raise their rates tremendously on the weekends and on holidays. Make sure you do your research and hire a company that got referred to you by a respectable family member or friend.
Our company has been around Minneapolis – St. Paul and surrounding suburbs since 1974. We still service clients that date back to the 70’s. Our clientele trust our workmanship.
Hiring a plumbing company that can get out to your house in 60 minutes or less doesn’t mean their qualified to do the work you need performed. Be aware and knowledgeable when hiring any company. Getting some type of estimate is better then getting no price at all.
Hiring a plumber in that emergency setting is not the smartest move. Know who your gonna call for any problem your having before the issue arises. Having some main contacts in your phone will save you money and you’ll be much happier to see whoever is coming out rather then a stranger.
