Drains, like most things require maintenance. Much of the maintenance is directly related to how and what you dispose. In New England where Winter can be extremely cold, pipes are known to freeze much easier. A kitchen sink drain, for example, can be damaged by the large amounts of grease that is disposed of down the drain. It is never, ever a good idea to pour cooking grease down the kitchen faucet drain or garbage disposal.
The toilet is a drain that backs up due to many different causes. Too much toilet paper is the most common cause for a back up. Another major cause in toilet drain clogs that can be easily prevented is an object being flushed down the toilet and lodged in the trap of the toilet. We don’t recommend flushing anything down the toilet drain but toilet paper, including flush-able wipes which can harm the septic system. Children love to flush objects down the toilet. This has been found to cause issues in homes with small children.
The bathroom sink is another drain that is often clogged and needs to be snaked. Hair as well as other things, after time will collect sludge and cause a blockage. Sometimes the p-trap will need to be removed and the objects taken out.
Many times there are recurring clogs in the drains can be a sign that there is damage to the drain system. The age of the system can be a cause and the line simply collapses. Sometimes root intrusion can be a key factor as well. If the sewer lines back up more than once. We recommend having a camera ran down the drain to see what’s causing the back ups. Once the camera is down, our technician can give you a diagnosis and solution. Many times you can do a repair on just the bad section although other times a repair is not possible and a complete new sewer line will need to be installed. This depends on the condition of the pipe.
That can be the question many home owners and business owners face. We can come and evaluate your problem. We can determine if it is a plumbing or a septic issue and let you the estimated costs for either.
