Main sewer lines can get obstructed and or clogged for several reasons. One being caused by tree roots that get through your line weather its clay, cast iron, or plastic. No matter what roots grows with water and tree roots will find their way to a water source. Another, reasons sewer lines can clogged is from foreign products that get flushed or accidentally put down drains. Just because products say there are “flushable or septic tank safe” doesn’t mean they should be flushed. Our company is here for you when you clog your own sewer line and these days we also have camera technology to view your sewer line and see the condition it’s in.

Sewer lines can be repaired meaning excavated if necessary but this is at last resort. Before digging up a broken line you must be 100% sure it needs to be repaired. Lots of times properties have horrible access’s or small clean-outs to properly even clean their sewer main line. After a company cleans your sewer line they can camera it and see the condition and pitch the line is in. If the camera shows that a repair is needed then that the time to install an outside clean out to properly be able to clean in the future. Weather your line needs snaking or jetting to clean the line outside is where the mess should be.

Sure there will be maintenance throughout the years but that’s just like everything else in life. We all buy or lease cars knowing we have gas, insurance and minor repair expenses. Plumbing and drain cleaning is no different. Owning property is fun but their are expenses that need to be address every year. If you stay on top and are aware of what needs to be done you’ll be OK.

When installing a sink you need to make sure it’s secure and won’t leak or pivot. Sinks are anchored down with screws to the counter itself. Weather it’s a laminate or granite counter top the sink needs to properly secured. If your dealing with granite you’ll need to hire a professional granite counter guy.

Drain pipes of the garbage disposal need to be installed with the right pitch so there’s no back flow into ones dishwasher drain.
