Most sewer clogs can be prevented with regular maintenance and proper use of your drains. Here are a few tips that will help keep your sewer line clear.
- Don’t throw everything into your toilet – Flushing facial tissues, napkins, diapers, and hair down your toilet creates clogs. Even disposables wipes have been known to cause clogs.
- Careful what you put in your garbage disposal – Avoid dumping large quantities of anything down your garbage disposal that can become lodged within your sewer line. Rice, grease, or bones can get stuck.
- Grease equals backups – Grease and fat may be liquid when poured down your drain, but they leave a reside and harden. This collects debris and can create a clog.
Tree roots branch out everywhere. Your neighbor’s tree roots can spread out and grow into and around your sewer lines. Call us to help determine if this is the issue and repair the damage before it gets worse.
Broken or Collapsed Sewer Lines
If your Sarasota area home is older, your sewer backup could be caused by broken, cracked, or collapsed lines. Although plastic sewer lines have now become the norm, older homes were built using cast iron and clay piping that can break down over time and create sewer problems.
Don’t Make the Same Costly Mistake Most Homeowners Make
Don’t reach for what you think might be a cheap and easy fix, such as Draino® or Liquid-Plumbr® to treat a clogged drain. These harsh chemicals can damage your plumbing pipes and sewer and result in making a simple fix a more costly repair. Licensed Professional Plumbers also offer simple, low-priced treatment options that use enzymes instead of harsh chemicals that can often solve and prevent future problems.
Diagnosing Your Sewer Problem
One of the best ways to pinpoint the cause of your home sewer backup is to have a professional plumber check it out. They can perform a video inspection of your sewer line and show you exactly what is causing the problem. They can then prescribe the most appropriate, safest, and least expensive solution
