Even homeowners who take great care of their appliances and plumbing frequently forget about the sewer line. Alas, the sewer line is arguably the most crucial piece of plumbing on your property. That’s right. The sewer line installation is your responsibility as the property owner. Fortunately, you can leave the sewer line cleaning, sewer repair, and eventual sewer line replacement to trained and experienced professionals. Rooter Hero Plumbing & Air is at your service in Larkspur, CA. Call any time to schedule a convenient appointment or request an urgent sewer repair in Larkspur today.
The sewer line is what connects your building’s plumbing system to the sewer main under public maintenance. Depending on local plumbing codes, the sewer line from residential homes is about 4 inches in diameter and buried several feet underground. As you can imagine, it is vulnerable to blockages and off-the-cuff inspections are not feasible. Since detecting issues requires advanced equipment and technology, you should stay alert for signs of trouble and stay on top of routine maintenance.
An ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure. Though Rooter Hero offers all types of cure, we want to help you avoid unexpected repairs. Our first suggestion is to invest in drain filters, garbage disposals, and even grease traps if you cook heavily. Be mindful of what you allow in the drains too. Anything sticky, fibrous, and hard should go in the trash. This includes foods like vegetable and fruit peels, bones, grease, fats, and oils. Do NOT flush anything other than toilet paper, pee, and poo.
What about the debris that does make its way into the drains? Rinse drains with hot water after use and clean drains with baking soda followed by vinegar once every couple of months. Finally, schedule a professional drain line or sewer line cleaning once every two to three years for the ultimate peace of mind.
