Is your main sewer clean out in a terrible spot?

Main sewer lines sometimes can be in the worst possible spots when having a clogged drain. When houses get built most the time builders don’t think about having a clogged drain to deal with. Placement of a main sewer line should be thought about ahead of time. Stack lines and front floor clean outs should be both easily accessible for cleaning/snaking.
I’ve seen basements built that have stack pipes right in the center of the basement which is great. What they didn’t plan for is that the bathroom would be around the stack and that the opening would face the wrong way.
Cleaning drains is very important. Drains do back up and there’s no way to prevent this. Chemicals is known to be terrible for the drains and pipes. More problems will occur if you use chemicals weather store bought or home made. Snaking drains is the only way to clean and push the clog out the pipe.

Leak Detection

When experiencing a water leak the first step is to turn the water off from the proper valve or at the main water shut-off valve. Your next several steps are very important. Your second step is to breathe and call a neighbor, family member or friend. Explain to them what your experiencing in a calm, relaxing voice. Remember now that your water is off there is no reason to panic. Call a couple different plumbing company’s and explain what your problem is. Most plumbing companies should be able to tell you their hourly rate. If a plumbing company doesn’t give you any kind of estimate over the phone that’s the key to move on. Most people check out three companies before hiring. If a family member or close friend had great experience with a company chances are you should go ahead and hire the same company.
