The Need for Clean Sewer Lines
Dirty and unattended sewer lines are a problem for many reasons. Sewer pipes are affected by shifting soil, freezing moisture and soil, and more. Blockages can build in the lines and inhibit flow through the pipe. Corrosion causes broken pipes, or collapsing in the line, which causes sewer line leaks, blockages, and other messes. Pipes sink and gather the waste that goes through them, and leak at their seals, and through cracks. Professional plumbing technicians are trained to seek out and repair these problems. They use state-of-the art equipment to clear sewer lines of debris and repair other damage.
Cleaning the Sewer Line
There are different methods for cleaning a sewer line. Sometimes, a chemical cleaner offers a more simple solution for the less complicated problem. Your plumber will input a chemical–often a foam–into the sewer line to push and flush debris, and clear the sewer pipe of filth that’s causing a blockage. These chemicals often dissolve the biological portions of the waste for a better clean.
In some cases, a drain snake may be necessary to reach areas that chemicals could not clear. This usually means that the clog is too much for the solution. For the more severe cases, to access the sewer line for a thorough cleaning, your professional may need to dig a trench to access the pipe and clean it. That does not mean that your yard will be damaged. An expert plumber knows how to reach your sewer line, clean it, and leave your yard looking as it should.
