Normally we don’t pay much attention towards the plumbing system and the sewer lines of our house. This is the main reason that we call a plumber because our sewer line is giving us some trouble. In such cases, either the whole sewer line has to be snaked opened, repaired or it needs to be replaced altogether. A better idea is to maintain your sewer drain lines to prevent the sewer from backups. When you pay attention towards maintaining your drain lines you may be able to increase their life time.
When you are using a lot oil or grease in your daily food then it can make it difficult to maintain your drain lines. Oil has fat particles that stick to the surface of drain lines and makes it difficult for the water to flow easily through them.
It is wise to take certain steps in your home and even in your place of business to easily reduce the risk of having backups and clogs in your sewer drain pipelines. You can find many cleaning agents and chemicals on the market. These will have the capability to digest the bacteria and enzymes which are normally found in food that causes them to stick to the inner surface of drain pipes. You should be using these chemicals as a maintaining agent on an every other month basis so you can prevent the backups and clogging in your main drain pipes. These products will be more effective depending on the type of blockage you have got in your drain lines. The cleaning agent will be able to clean it completely or partially. However, when you use these chemicals on an every other month basis you will be increasing the life time of your sewer pipes easily.
When you are experiencing drain problems it is advisable to hire a professional Master Plumber who specializes in drain cleaning maintenance for cleaning the blockage and backups in your drain line. You may also want to keep you lines clear after this by having them cleaned out every six months or at least once a year.
Other reasons for having a blockage the in sewer lines are their structure, tree roots and even deterioration as well. The key is to catch the problem as early as possible. You should always hire a professional plumber to do this job for you. When you suspect tree roots or deterioration it is wise to have a sewer camera inspection. The inspection will let you know exactly what the problem is with you main sewer line.
You should not let any such waste material or debris such as sand, soot, wood or other building materials in the drain line. Believe it or not this is a big problem we see on a lot of house where heavy backups occurs.
There should be garbage disposal system attached with your drain lines as well. In this way, only those waste materials will go through the drain lines that can flow with water easily. Lastly, let the water flow openly in the drain line at least once in a day so that any waste material can flow with it and doesn’t cause blockage in the sewer drain line.
