Being proactive is usually a good idea. With enough preparation, you can avoid disaster. Likewise, you can seamlessly respond without missing a beat – or losing your head! Your home’s plumbing system will need some maintenance from time to time. While some homeowners are skilled in basic plumbing repairs, some problems will baffle them. That’s when you should call a highly qualified plumber to swing by and assess what the problem is!
Set Up a Sewer Camera Inspection
Sewer video inspections sound like complex undertakings. The truth is quite different – but it does involve technology that the average person won’t have access to. The video inspection alerts the plumbing pro to any issues surrounding the condition of the sewer system. Maintenance, cleaning, and repairs can prevent more serious problems from developing.
Flush Out the Sewer Line
The next suggestion we have is that you flush out the sewer line. This technique requires the use of power water-jetting equipment. The reason why you’d want to have such powerful streams of water being blasted into your sewer is to eliminate grime, debris, mud, and other stubborn residues. This action restores a steady flow and decreases the chances of an accidental clog caused by guests, kids, or pets. When you combine this strategy with the camera inspection we mentioned above, you get the best value-for-money possible!
Confirm That The Sewer Ejector Pump Works
Depending on the terrain around your property, you may need to have a sewer ejector pump installed. These pumps perform a very specific and necessary function – they push sewage up the nearby hill to join the city’s main sewer lines. Despite how effective they are, they can form dense clogs and other blockages. In addition, they must be cleaned out and maintained twice per year in order to sustain maximum performance.
Pay Some Attention to the Garbage Disposal
You’re so used to having the garbage disposal that you probably assume it’ll never malfunction. Every appliance in your home, whether or not they are found in the kitchen, can fail at some point. If the sink isn’t draining properly, it’s a sign that the garbage disposal needs some TLC. Baking soda, lemon juice, and boiling water all provide a simple solution that gets the works moving again.
