Why must i have a washing machine filter installed?

There a couple reasons you should install a washing machine filter on the discharge hose. There a tremendous amounts of solids being discharged through your washing machine. Hard water from our cities will especially help create solid chucks. Having a water softener can help but not 100% of the time. Having a lint filter will not eliminate a clogged drain but will definitely help. We always suggest having your floor drain cleaned every time one’s sewer line is cleaned. Most people don’t realize all the debris that really grows and hardens in the floor drain which makes for further expense in the future. Having a clean drain will not only prevent backing up during that unwanted time but also helps with unwanted smells.

If you feel pressured into such a long and expensive decision your making the wrong choice. Listen to your inner ear when shopping.

Tree Roots in my sewer?

Broken Sewer Line

Tree Roots grow all throughout the ground. Once a sewer line gets installed the roots start to move closer and closer cause they need water to grow. Just so were clear roots also go when were in droughts. Tree roots are bad to have but don’t feel alone cause everyone has them one way or another. Stop waiting until a sewage back-up to get your drain lines cleaned. Drain lines should be treated just like going to a yearly doctor and dentist appointment. People that wait from going to the dentist find out they have cavities. Which all in all cost more to repair. Same with going to the doctor, they have to check us out or they may be something we don’t feel or see that is hurting us inside.
