Sewer Line Cleaning – When Do You Need It?

At home, your pipes and waterways can be susceptible to all kinds of clogs. Maybe you've even taken care of a few in your shower drain or kitchen sink before, but did you know that there is one water line you absolutely don't want to get clogged?

That's right, your sewer line is one that you definitely don't want to back up and clog. We find that most homeowners typically don't call for help until problems arise. 

Cleaning & Inspections

Somewhere in your home, or right outside of it, should be your sewer line. This is the line that channels all of the wastewater from your sinks, showers, bathtubs, and toilets out of your home and towards the main sewer line below the street.

Generally, you should have your sewer lines cleaned, or at least inspected every two years. Performing routine maintenance and check-ups can ensure that you are less likely to run into a catastrophe in the future. This is the best way to detect potential damage and stay one step ahead of costly repairs. 

How Does It Work? 

With modern technology, plumbers are able to use inspection cameras to see into sewer lines to diagnose the problem at the source. When looking at sewer lines, using a fiber optic camera can shed light on any build ups, clogs, or excess amounts of FOG (fats, oils, and grease).

At Coleman Plumbing, we will work with you to fight and prevent sewer line clogs. Our team is prepared to handle serious clogs and keep your home's water and drainage systems running smoothly.

How To Prevent Future Problems

There are many ways that you can easily prevent damage not only to your sewer line, but to lines all throughout your home. For starters, never use your drains to dispose of fats, oils, or grease, otherwise known as "FOG." One of the easiest ways to dispose of FOG is by pouring into an empty container that you can dispose of once cooled down, such as an empty soup can.

Another way to protect the insides of your home's drainage system is by using some type of straining device. Whether you use one in your kitchen sink or at the bottom of your shower, preventing large clogs or hair from even entering the pipes is a great way to prevent damage.
