Got Roots?

Weather your a new or veteran home owner tree roots like below should never be in your sewer line.

This is what our company pulls out of clients sewer lines everyday

Tree roots are poison for your sewer system and you want to hire a professional company to get rid of whatever roots are in your sewer line (depending on the current condition of your line). Cleaning a line is the first step but to determine the condition of the sewer line a camera will have to be put through your line. A camera will show if more cleaning is needed or if you’ll need to set up a repair or in another words excavation. It’s better to know what your up against before, instead of it being a surprise later on at the most inconvenient time. Digging a sewer line isn’t cheap and during the winter months due the frost line it’s even more.

Ken’s Sewer Service has been cleaning sewer line for over 40 years and has an experienced crew with combined knowledge of over 100 years experience. We have different plumbing issues thrown at us each and every day some the same and some not.

Sewer cleaning seems like to you can hire just anyone but good luck with that. Having an experienced technician will not only save you money but will give you future advice and lead you in the right direction. All homes have older, aging sewer lines and repairs from time to time is necessary. Our job is to prolong excavation as long as possible.

New homes that are built don’t always have a new sewer system going from the house to the street. Don’t assume just because it’s a new house it’s a new sewer system. Check the permit records. To go even one step further just because you have a new sewer line doesn’t mean you can neglect cleaning it. It’s just the opposite, since you have a new sewer line this is thee time to take care of it before it does age and break. It’s not hard to clog a sewer line. All is takes is a bad bend or low spot that collects lots of debris or debris that hardens to the walls of the sewer pipe.

If your looking for advice and a good company that’s been around and plans on staying around call Ken’s Sewer Service today!

We look forward to hearing from you.

Skipping Annual Sewer maintenance will lead to this…

Roots are one thing that won’t just go away. Even if you repair a spot in a sewer line roots will come back. By cutting down a tree, roots will still find a way back to your sewer line.
Call Ken’s Sewer Service for all plumbing and drain cleaning services.

Roots will grow up to 15 years after a tree gets cut down. Make sure you clean your sewer line yearly so roots stay small and breaks don’t happen. We can’t stop the ground from shifting but we can prevent major root growth in one’s sewer line.
