Our Tips for Preventing Sewer Backups

If you are in need of an expert to provide plumbing repairs and sewer repair services in Phoenix, AZ, you can count on the team at Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Phoenix. We’re also pleased to offer advice on how you can prevent sewer line back-ups at your property.

Eliminate Drain Clogs

Avoiding unnecessary backups and sewer line repair starts with not using your drains as all-purpose disposal sites. Only plumbing-safe bathroom tissue should be flushed down toilets, and nothing but water should ever be discarded down sink, tub and shower drains. All grease, food waste, hair and personal care products should be placed in a trash can for disposal.

Keep Roots Out

Plants with large root systems should be kept far away from underground sewer lines. Tree roots are a major cause of sewage back-ups and can even damage pipes to the extent that sewer line replacement becomes necessary.

Schedule Routine Maintenance and Repair

Regular sewer line cleaning can head off most back-ups before they ever have a chance to occur. Periodic servicing will also allow us to identify problems and perform the needed sewer pipe line repair work while the job is still small and manageable.

Take These Steps in the Event of a Back-up

If you ever find yourself dealing with a sewer line back-up, contact us to request an appointment with a skilled plumber in Phoenix, AZ. While you’re waiting for help to arrive, we recommend pulling out any visible material that’s blocking a drain and limiting potential damage by soaking up standing water with newspaper or disposable towels.

The team at Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Phoenix is always ready to assist in a plumbing emergency, so don’t hesitate to give us a call if you need to repair or replace sewer line. Schedule an appointment today.
