Main Sewer Line Tree Roots

We can’t stress en enough that tree roots grow in sewer lines and they should be cleaned out before a backed up line occurs.

Main sewer lines have tree roots that grow all year round and cutting them out is just like taking your car in for an oil change or getting yourself a haircut. Just because you don’t see an issue doesn’t mean it’s not happening and not causing a major problem. Drain and sewer cleaning should be thought about and scheduled just like anything else you plan in life.

Roots are the number one cause of clogged sewer lines. Sure offset lines and broken areas here and there don’t help but roots will always grow in. No matter if you have an old pipe going to the city sewer or a new PVC pipe roots always find their way to water.

Call Hiawatha Plumbing to clean your line yearly before a flooded basement happens. A sewer back is no joke and is not fun or easy to clean up depending how far it gets into your basement. Finished basement should even have more concern. Save money and clean before your calling for emergency service.

Commercial Restaurant Floor Drain

Commercial floor drains tend to back up often with all the grease and sludge.


Restaurants tend to have several drains cleaned out on a monthly or b-monthly basis. Toilet and urinals lies also tend to get plugged up.

If you own or manage a commercial property be sure to keep up on your drain cleaning. Drains that you have cleaned out at night or on the weekend will cost you more so plan smart. Emergency service is when plumbing companies make lots of money. We call it “Emergency Dollars”. Have your drain pipes cleaned on maintenance and don’t wait for a clogged drain.

We look forward to working with you!

Wonder what happened in this planning?

When building a room for any plumbing fixtures make sure you plan it big enough.

Building from ground up

It’s kinda of crazy to see and think about what’s behind your walls. It’s funny to talk with people and they don’t understand where the water goes when it goes down the drain. Some people don’t realize all the work that goes into a house before the sheet rock and nice paintings get hung. Here’s a picture of a house with rough in plumbing.,r:0,s:0,i:69

So much time and thought goes into planning the layout of each and every room. What you see in the picture above is water and drain lines. The placement of where pipes go is very crucial. Also, in the bottom left hand corner you’ll see wires that run through each truss. When running water and drain lines make sure to put in nail plates at every truss. Having the chances of the sheet rockers putting a whole in a pipe is just not worth it. Take the proper steps in building or don’t build at all. Hire the professionals so the job gets completed right the first time around.
