Sewer lines and drains, when clogged or bogged down, can be an all-consuming nightmare for homeowners—especially if a back-up occurs. A foul mess has the very distinct possibility of spilling out and into your home. What’s more, once things get to this stage, you quite likely have a pricey sewer repair on your hands. As New Hope sewer repair specialists, we at Gene’s Water & Sewer would like to extend our thoughts on a few things that you can do to help prevent back-ups to your sewer network.
Always take the proper cautions when it comes to the utilization of harsh chemicals. Dispose of these wares properly. Do not pour any liquids of these sorts down your sewer or other drains within the home. Do not plant new trees anywhere near your sewer lines as the roots of your trees seek out any water source they can gain access to. Should your sewer line end up as this source, any and all piping therein can crack or break, resulting in even more required sewer repair.
Never ever pour cooking grease down a drain or even a toilet. Grease from cooking should be stored in a glass container. Just a little bit of grease sent through your sewer lines can create a massive drain back up. As a precautionary (and just plain wise) measure, always use a back-flow prevention device that will aid in keeping water moving in the right and proper direction.
Your piping and drains need a good cleansing off and on over time. Pour a cup of baking soda down your drains to provide a little cleaning to help prevent expensive sewer repair. Follow this up by pouring a cup of white vinegar down the same drains. Lastly, boil up some water, pour that down those very same drains, to wash all of those cleaning agents through the system to help clean up any build-up down the sewer line.
Do not flush anything down the toilet other than standardized and acceptable human waste and toilet paper. Too much flushing away non-toileting fare could add up to a sewer repair.
Follow these easy tips to avoid a costly sewer repair, likely and often the dreaded, property destroying traditional sewer repair. If multiple bursts occur throughout the sewer line, a full sewage system back-up or clog has emerged, or tree roots grow into and crack pipes, a sewer repair or even replacement is likely in order. The average sewer replacement bill in New Hope can run anywhere from $2000-$15,000, depending on a wide array of circumstances.
