No matter what’s leading your sewer to back up or become congested, make sure to call us as soon as you notice a problem. Fixing it quickly can help you avoid expensive damage to your residence.

Common Causes of Sewer Backup

Obstructions in the city’s sanitary sewer main can cause your sewer to back up. Tree roots can also create problems if they get tangled in into your lines.

There are a few things you can do to avoid a backup.

  • Get rid of waste appropriately.
  • Don’t dump grease down your drain.
  • Don’t flush paper towels, wet wipes or feminine goods.
  • Have Roland J. Down Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning put in a backwater prevention valve to halt sewer backflows.
  • Have us look for and correct incorrect plumbing connections, like French drains, sump pumps or other flood control systems. These connections can obstruct your lines with debris and silt.
  • Replace your line and tap with plastic pipe to stop tree roots from damaging your lines.
