Common Causes of Sewer Backup
Obstructions in the city’s sanitary sewer main can spread to your property’s sewer line. Tree roots are also quite destructive when it comes to your sewer lines. There are a couple things you can do to avoid a backup:
- Dispose of waste correctly.
- Don’t dispose of grease down your drain.
- Don’t flush paper towels, wet wipes or feminine products.
- Have Pine State Services install a backwater prevention valve to stop sewer backflows.
- Have us check older plumbing connections to make sure they’re up to code. Bad connections in French drains, sump pumps or flood control systems may fill the lines with foreign debris.
- Replace your line and tap with plastic pipe to keep tree roots from causing more damage.
