Common Causes of Sewer Backup
Obstructions in the city’s sanitary sewer main can spread to your property’s sewer line. Tree roots can also create problems if they expand into your 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 Comfortech Service Experts 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 can clog the lines with debris and silt.
- Replace your line and tap with plastic pipe to stop tree roots from damaging your lines.
