Sewer systems see a lot of use in homes and can be susceptible to large amounts of build-up. If you neglect your sewer system, you could experience sewage backup in your home or pipe problems in the future. Having proper sewer cleanings will help you have a healthy home and protect your sewer system so you can use it for many years into the future.
A thorough sewer cleaning will work to remove debris build-up, remove unnecessary items that may have been flushing in your sewer system, and remove foul odors from your home. Your sewer system needs to function properly to give you the best quality home possible.
Before You Begin, Schedule A Professional Sewer Inspection
Before a sewer cleaning occurs, having a sewer inspection will help the plumbers see what is happening inside your sewer and better prepare them to clean the pipes. Inspections are usually done with CCTV crawlers that relay video back to a computer monitoring system.
Using crawlers helps the plumbers to see the curves and bends of the system and determine the current condition of the piping. If you want to have a better-functioning sewer system, having an inspection before the cleaning will help prevent future issues and make the system last much longer.
Our Video Sewer Inspection Service
S&B Plumbing uses video sewer inspection to help eliminate guesswork when cleaning the sewer system. Having a video inspection before sewer cleaning will help us to diagnose the actual problem that your system is having. Our video inspections use drain cables with cameras attached to the end, which then share the video back to a screen on the other end. This allows our inspectors and plumbers to determine what is blogging the sewer and help the homeowner avoid more problems down the road.
Sewer Cleaning Methods
There are a few different methods that plumbers use when it comes to sewer cleaning. Hydraulic cleaning starts with locating a blockage and using high-pressure water to release it. If the blockage contains dirt or gravel, vacuum trucks could be used to remove the block and dispose of them in the landfill. Deep water is sent into the sewer system during flushing operations to clean the system effectively.
Rodders, hand rods, and hand-held augers are all tools that are used during mechanical sewer cleaning. These tools are used to help scrape and push debris out of the pipe as well as work through roots and cut apart large blocks. This method is more effective at removing large blockages than it is at cleaning, so using this method may only improve your sewer system for a short period of time until debris builds up again.
Chemicals are commonly used when tree roots are involved. It works to cut through the roots, and grease, and eliminate rodents that may have made it into the sewer system. Chemicals have to be approved by the local government before being used in sewer cleaning. Hiring a professional will help you avoid problems or unapproved chemicals from getting into the city sewer system.
