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.

Ever wonder how can you set up tree root treatment on your sewer line?

Tree root removal is just as important as getting an oil change for your vehicle or going to an annual doctor appointment. Roots harden and thicken in your sewer line over time. By cleaning your sewer line annually and keeping up with root growth you will reduce the chance of having to spend thousands of dollars of excavation. Most companies charge over 5 thousand dollars for an easy 6 foot sewer repair. Tree root removal should be neglected. Each and every year you should have it cleaned before or after winter and be done with it. Cleaning a sewer line on maintenance is also cheaper then when your sewer line gets clogged.
Ken’s Sewer Service offers tree root removal at the highest quality service and an affordable price. Out rates are 1/3 the cost of any big name company around town and we perform higher quality work.
Main sewer systems are the pathway for all debris leaving your property and that enters the city main line. My opinion is that each main line should be cleaned and inspected before ever buying or selling a home. Seeing so many bad lines and seeing people having to replace drain pipe right after moving into their new dream home is never a fun site to see.
Just read the testimonials our own clientele have written about our company.
Ken’s Sewer Service provides exceptional drain cleaning and plumbing services to the entire Minneapolis-St. Paul Area (including all suburbs in the Twin Cities).

Plumbing Flood Control For Sewer Lines

What you see below are roots on the end of a sewer cable. The reason roots puncture through your sewer line is because there in need of water. Even during years where we get plenty of water roots still grow and make there way in sewer lines. Roots don’t stop until they find on going water sources. Normally inside sewer lines water flows all day long. No matter if you have an old sewer clay pipe or new PVC pipe, roots will enter your sewer system at some point.

The only way on slowing down the process of roots entering inside your sewer system is to annually clean your sewer main line. This doesn’t mean rent a machine and do it yourself. It means hire a professional that performs this work on a daily basis and knows what needs to be done. Rented machines also don’t perform nearly as good as the ones the professionals use. Tree roots are the number one cause of shifting and collapsed pipes. Repairs made by excavation are not cheap and most diggings are due to tree root neglect.

Flood control is another huge problem for Minneapolis – St. Paul homes being their aging. By not cleaning out your drains yearly this will cause flooded basement and ruined personnel belongings. Sewers that flood in homeowners basements aren’t pretty and don’t stop until your clog drain is opened. We’ve seen horrible cases where entire basements have had to go through total remodel once the sewer system has been opened. The number one cause for sewer systems flooding are tree roots that grow within your sewer line. Homes not just in Minneapolis – St. Paul have this problem as well. Just because you’ve lived somewhere for 10 plus years and have never had a sewer line cleaned doesn’t mean your line is fine. Chances are your sewer line is in need of cleaning and you should think of getting it cleaned before you get hit with thousands of dollars of excavation costs.
Sewer lines that don’t have tree roots have scale and with hard debris that needs to be scarped out of the line. By not cleaning your sewer line it will slowing close up and excavation costs will be right around the corner.
Ken’s Sewer Service hires technicians with years of experience and are great at what they do.
Hire a plumbing and drain cleaning company that has a good reputation and is one that gets recommended by family members and friends.

Washing machine hoses and shut-off valves

Washing machine hoses and all faucets and water comes out off should have a shut-off valve near by. Each and every water source should have it’s own individual shut-off valve. The benefits of installing or having shut-off valves far out-way the con’s.

Plumbing clutter can be so inconvenient at times

This picture was taken from one of our clients homes. The red square is pointing to where the main sewer stack line goes. The clean-out to access this drain line is at the bottom of the pipe. This client has no floor clean-out in the home and we would have to remove the water heater just to clean the sewer line if they were to ever clog up. In this situation a floor clean out should be installed or an outside clean out should in installed. We suggested this be done before the line backs-up and to have the line inspected with camera technology. Talk about cluttered and inconvenient.
Call Ken’s Sewer Service for any of your plumbing or drain cleaning needs.
