Main sewer lines are the largest drains in a home. All other household drains lead to the main sewer line. The main sewer runs underground from the house and connects to a city sewer line or a septic tank. Your main sewer line can become clogged from the debris those other household drains wash into it or by tree roots that penetrate pipe joints from surrounding soil. Sewer cleaning is the process of removing built-up debris, leaves, grease and obstructions such as tree roots from the sewer system.
Sewer Clean Out
A sewer clean out is an important part of the plumbing and drainage system. Everyone should be aware of the location of the sewer clean out in case of a sewer backup. The sewer clean out is a pipe with a plug or cap that provides access to the inside of the sewer line so that blockage can be removed. The sewer rooter machine and video inspection camera should always be inserted through a properly accessible clean out.
Before undertaking cleaning and repair works, we use a closed-circuit-television (CCTV) inspection. CCTV cameras are mounted on robotic crawlers that are connected to a remote control and a video monitor. Once we locate the plumbing problem we can address it.
Your sanitary sewer lateral is the pipe that carries your wastewater from your home (toilets, sinks, showers, laundry, floor drains, etc.) to the public sanitary sewer main that is typically in the street. Just like roofs and driveways, maintaining a lateral is the homeowners’ responsibility.
If you are planning on doing any excavation, including repair of your sanitary service lateral, call Mr. Plumber. Our plumbers will help ensure the work is done properly and meets city code.
