Building trap removal and replacement
Today we would like to tell you more about building traps. As we’ve written about them before, we can clean it up and remove the blockage by a snake or plunger, but considering it’s specific design features we can not clear it completely.
Nowadays, each device has its own sanitary trap and therefore the presence of building trap is not only useless, but also problematic.
Why is that? It’s presence in the sewer line leads to the formation of blockage, which can cause flooding in your basement. The problem was so serious that in the 60s the sanitary building code had to be changed.
Very often tree roots find their way into traps and start growing, which is also a potential cause of blockage, running backup, and can cause cracks in these parts of the sewer system. The presence of the building trap on the main sewer line makes it impossible to clean the pipes completely and fully inspect the whole sewer system .
When the sewer system works well, most people do not even know about the existence of a building trap on the sewer line. Building trap is located close to the front wall, and can be either inside or outside the house.
Based on the aforementioned reason, and particularly given the fact that the building trap is on the main sewer line, even a little clogging can lead to running backup and the inability to use the drain system fully.
Therefore, we, AAADrain experts, recommend building trap removal. We have got 15 years of experience in our arsenal, we conduct building trap removal and replacement with a 2-way cleanout instead. 2-way cleanout significantly aids the process of cleaning and inspection with a camera and, if necessary, cleaning with snake.
Each replacement entitles you to a camera inspection of the whole sewer system.
Guarantee for such work is 20 years, just as our work on full and partial drain replacements.
