Main Line Sewer & Drain Stoppage
How can you tell when you have a main line sewer stoppage? A main line connects your plumbing to your city's municipal sewer line or septic tank. When a main line sewer is clogged, the first signs you will start to notice is in your toilet, bathtubs, and showers; their pathway is directly to the sewer as well as being the closest to the ground than any sinks in your home. Eventually, these and other plumbing fixtures in your home will start to back up with grey or used water, which is quite often a gross sight to see, and not to mention hazardous to you and your family. To confirm a mainline stoppage is done by checking your homes clean out. Clean outs are usually located in a home's exterior, a 3-4 inch pipe extending from the ground with a noticable cap. The cap is removed and if there is visible water or overflowing, you know you have a problem.
Here are some of the most common causes to main line stoppages
- Foreign objects.
- Root infested pipes.
- Years of built up grease & sludge.
