Have your sewer lines cleaned about every two years. Preventive maintenance prevents cracks, clogs and bursts by keeping debris and buildup out of your pipes. Mr. Rooter Plumbing offers cost-effective maintenance solutions to keep you from ever having a problem.
Why Do Sewer Lines Malfunction?
When sewer lines fail, there are a few common causes.
- Tree roots – Trees on your property grow roots in all directions. They’re looking for water and your sewer line is full of it. Roots can grow into your sewer line and cause leaks and blockages that lead to failure.
- Blockages – You put food, grease, oil, personal products, and even small objects down your drains. Anything you rinse away or flush can get stuck. Blockages cause pressure to build up and can lead to failure.
- Age – Pipes are exposed to corrosive elements in the soil. The ground temperature fluctuates, as does the temperature of the water in the pipes. They expand and contract and rub against soil and rock. Eventually, they can wear out. Routine inspection can keep an eye out for the signs of aging.
