3 Reasons Homeowners Require Sewer and Drain Service

Water flowing down the drain

Taking care of your plumbing is extremely important to ensuring long-term performance and safety. However, problems with your sewer lines and drains are bound to happen every once in a while. There are a number of different issues with your sewer lines and drains that may arise over time, so make sure that you’re prepared with the phone number of a local drain and sewer cleaning service! Here are some potential drain and sewer problems you may run into:

 1.      FOGG-Related Clogs

FOGG is an acronym used throughout the plumbing industry which stands for fat, oil, grease, and grit. These four drain-cloggers are among the most dangerous everyday materials that people pour into their drains without thinking twice. These items appear harmless and fluid, but can quickly coagulate and cause severe sewer line clogs. If you have a FOGG-related clog at home, then call a plumber right away to clear it safely.

 2.      Tree Root Infiltration

Another common drain and sewer line problem is the clogging of plumbing by tree roots. Tree roots are always in search of reliable sources of nutrients and water. Naturally, your sewer line is the perfect source for both of these things, so tree roots will be drawn to them. Over time, tree roots can actually break into your plumbing and spread, causing severe clogs and backups. To repair root damage, contact a plumber who specializes in trenchless plumbing repair.

 3.      Backup Prevention

Backups can happen due to serious clogs, burst plumbing, and problems at your local water utility. To help protect homes from water damage and sewer water pathogens, your plumber can help you devise ways to prevent sewer water backups. One of the most effective ways is to install a backflow valve, which allows water to flow out of your home, while blocking water from flowing in reverse.
