Sewer Main Line Pit Clean Out

pit clea out

The best place to clean a sewer line is either from a front clean out of an outside clean out. The reason being is that you want to work from the closest clean out possible to the clog. As for an outside clean out, it’s nice because the mess stays outside and all the equipment can be kept outside as well.

There are several reasons why sanitary main sewer lines get clogged up and end up backing your basement up. Tree roots end up breaking through your pipe and grow towards the water flow. Once root intrusion gets inside your pipe and starts growing you must keep up with maintenance cleanings or that root will further break and end up destroying your sewer pipe. Don’t be one of those tat need excavation on a broken sewer line cause you’ve neglected cleaning your line.

Understanding drain lines isn’t always as easy as it may seem. Just cause you come across a clogged drains doesn’t mean it’s going to always be an easy fix. Some are some aren’t. Drain lines that may get clogged in your home or business are:
Sanitary Main Sewer Lines
Floor Drains
Branch Lines
Kitchen & Bath Sinks
Laundry Tubs
Exterior Drains
Garage Drains
Area & Yard drain and many many more!

All drain lines get clogged in different ways. Some get clogged from overuse, some from misuse and abuse. A kitchen sink may get clogged from just use over a period of time or after a large family gathering and having lots of debris put down your garbage disposal or drain line.

Bathroom drain lines get clogged from hair, soap, tooth paste, scum, grit, dirt, sand etc..
Laundry drain lines get clogged from lint, hair, paint and all sorts of grit.
Commercial drains and residential drain are different though they have the same purpose, to move all waste and debris from your drains and into where they tap into the city sewer line.

From time to time most our clients call us on maintenance to clean drains before they back up and get clogged and end up making a huge, smelly, gross mess in their home and/or business. Having maintenance done can give you a piece of mind.
Remember our plumbing and drain cleaning systems work round the clock even when your not using them. Water from condensate lines drain into your floor drains and cause trap and floor drain line to clog and cause a mess as well.
