Sewer backups can be very costly and unpleasant.
Sewer Line Maintenance Can Prevent Drain Repairs
Preventive drain line and sewer line maintenance methods can help avoid many types of sewer line blockages. Remember that your home is like any other thing that requires periodic maintenance to keep its good appearance, and avoid problems due to wear and tear. As a homeowner, you will need to check such routine items as your garage door opener, air conditioning system for leaks, heating system for energy inefficiency, integrity of your roof, and insulation, just to name a few. Your house drain and sewer line are no different.
Below are some common problems with sewer lines that may be prevented
- Blockage from tree roots
- Grease blockages
- Large pieces of food
- Mud, leaves, and debris
- Other physical objects
- Collapsed sewer line
The property owner is responsible for the service line from the point where it connects to the Village sewer main to the house or building. Most sewer backups occur from items being sent down the line that cause blockage.
For tree root blockage, you can go to a major hardware store and a tree root treatment that can help eleviate your tree root problem. Please be sure to follow the label directions.
