Frequently Asked Questions
How can I prevent a sewer backup?
Preventing a sewer backup requires proactive measures - here are six suggestions:
- Regular Maintenance. Schedule routine plumbing inspections and drain cleaning to address issues before they get worse.
- Proper Flushing Habits. Avoid flushing non-flushable items (e.g., flushable wipes, floss, and feminine hygiene products).
- Backflow Prevention. Install backflow prevention devices to prevent sewage from entering your home during heavy rains.
- Watch Where You Plant Trees. If you’re planning a landscaping project, be careful where you plant trees. Tree roots near your sewer line will likely find their way into the line for nutrients.
- Mindful Disposal. Be cautious about what goes down your drains, avoiding excessive food scraps, oils, and other debris.
- Sewer Line Inspection. Is your sewer line aging or prone to issues? Consider a professional sewer line inspection and cleaning to detect problems and remove buildup.
By taking these preventive steps, you can reduce the risk of sewer backups.
