Simple Solutions to Sewer Line Clogs
If visions of backhoes and dirt piles arise at the mention of “sewer line clog,” rest assured that modern plumbing repair techniques have made most disruptive plumbing work obsolete.
Simplest Issue and Its Fix: Grease and debris clogs form in nearly everyone sewer lines eventually. The good news is that can be blown out quickly with hydro-jetting. A high-powered engine pushes water through a narrow hose held close to the source of the clog. It leaves pipes squeaky clean and puts only environmentally friendly water (and your grease clog) into the sewer. It will take years or even decades for another clog to build up again. You can read more about amazing hydro-jetting here.
Fixable Tree Root Intrusion: With the California drought, tree roots have become particularly aggressive. (Read more here). Once a root has penetrated a pipe seam or crack to find precious water, roots proliferate causing damage and blockage. Luckily, Perry Plumbing has a special snake with a “scorpion cutter” at the end. Sharp blades can turn and cut through the worst ball of roots.
Severe Pipe Damage: Even if a section of your sewer pipes has been destroyed by tree roots, shifting earth or age, you still may not need to dig up your backyard. Trenchless Relining lines your pipes with an epoxy that makes them good as new.
These days, a sewer line problem is no longer a life-disrupting challenge. Perry Plumbing can put a stop to any backups before any nasty damage occurs.
Who Is Due for a Sewer Inspection?
While homeowners of newer homes tend to inspect and/or clean sewers on an as-needed basis (see symptoms above and do not ignore them!), the following groups are smart to have a sewer inspection:
- owners of homes over 40 years old
- those whose sinks showers and floor drains seem to be draining slowly
- those who have had tree roots invade their pipes before
