Today we want to tell you how to decide whether you need any clogged drain repair, cleaning, maintenance, and full or partial pipe replacement in your sewage system. You will say that your system works perfectly fine and you will be right. But the problem is, we do not notice how our sewage system just works, we only notice it when something goes wrong e.g. wet basement, clogged sink, clogged drain, etc. In worst case scenarios e.g. blockage and backup, this means a big sanitary problem.
In order to prevent such problems, and tedious things like clogged drain repair, drain maintenance needs to be carried out every now and then.
When and how?
Clogged Drain Repair
If you encounter an unpleasant smell in your basement at least somewhat regularly, you need to perform a camera inspection to get an idea about the state of your system. Ensure the pipes are not clogged. This way you can prevent a backup.
After the inspection, you decide what to do next. You can snake if the tree root is small and in the same place, but remember that the snake may cut only the portion of the root, which is inside. Afterwards, the root can still continue to grow in the pipe and your clogged drain repair efforts will have proven useless. Thus, if you had to resort to snaking at least twice over the course of a year, you should consider replacing your system.
It may be complete or partial replacement of the sewer system, we define it after the inspection with a camera. If the root or the blockage is only in one place you can do a partial replacement of tubes. Otherwise, you will most likely need to do a complete replacement of your sewer system.
If there is a building trap on your sewer line, it should be changed. About 90% of all blockages occur in building traps, which are also virtually impossible to work on with a snake.
