Average cost to clean your main sewer line

Calls come in everyday to clean clogged main sewer drains. First off, know that each and every sewer line is different. Never can two sewer lines be identical. The average cost of cleaning a main sewer line is normally under $140. There are a couple different ways to clean a main sewer line and I think it’s wise to talk briefly about them. If a house or commercial building has a proper floor main sewer line clean-out near the front of their foundation you could get a sewer line cleaned for around $130 for under 90 feet. Companies do charge more per foot after 90 feet. If one can only clean a sewer line through a stack pipe it could take a little longer. Note: that some stacks have smaller opening to clean a sewer line. If a stack line has a smaller opening we always suggest in the future to increase the size. getting a bigger blade through ones sewer line will be more beneficial to them. For the most part sewer lines never have to be jetted. If a company offers to jet your main sewer line before cleaning it with blades be hesitant to way they want to proceed that way. 95% of sewer lines can be cleaned with blades. For ones that don’t know what jetting is, it’s high pressure water that cleans ones line. We suggest getting lines cleaned by blades before water ever is even introduced. Number one, jetting costs more and number two jetting again isn’t always needed. If one knows that their line needs a jetter you should go ahead an proceed.
Most the time the average sewer line costs under $150 to clean. We suggest to clean and maintain ones sewer line every 12 months. Also, after receiving a main sewer line cleaning think about cleaning your floor drain at the same time. Debris is always left in there and will back up your drain soon after and if not will harden in your line. By cleaning sewer line every 12 months you will get the best results from roots and all other sorts of debris from growing and spreading worse in ones main sewer line.
If you must go about cleaning your sewer line through your toilet the price is higher for pulling/resetting your toilet. Toilet lines are the LAST WAY we want to clean your main sewer line. Cleaning a sewer line is all about the size of the blade we can get through the line
Call Hiawatha Plumbing for any questions.

Dual Flush Toilets Pros and Cons

Some countries make dual flush toilet mandatory. Dual toilets are also known as “Green” toilets. These toilets flush no more then 1.6 gallons, compared to the standard toilets that flush 3.5 gallons. Most dual toilets are designed to use gravity to remove waste through a large trapway. Older toilets use pressure siphoning. The larger trapways are to reduce the amount of toilet clogs. The cost of the dual flushing toilets start at $250 and can go up to about four times the price. Dual toilets have a very modern look to them so they can match with a variety of bathroom styles. These toilets can be purchased in one or two piece sets.
Some cons to the dual flush toilets is that there harder to install. Each model is different and requires a professional plumber. These toilets also may require more cleaning due to the lower volume per flush. The buttons on the top of the unit may be confusing at first cause there not marked well. In most cases the advantages outweigh the disadvantages. A dual flush toilet in the long run will save you money on your water bill.
