Your sewer system is likely not something you give a whole lot of thought to on a regular basis. However, this system is essential to maintaining a healthy and hygienic home by ridding your plumbing system of wastewater. If your drains and/or sewer line become clogged, it can create serious consequences, and cleaning your pipes is something that should be left to the professionals.
One of the most effective and efficient ways to clean your drains and sewer line is with hydro-jetting—an innovative method of scouring debris and gunk away from the walls of your pipes and leaving you with a thoroughly cleaned plumbing system. We’ve shared below three scenarios that indicate you may need this aggressive form of drain cleaning.
Multiple Clogged Drains
Have you noticed more than one drain seems to be clogged in your home? When it’s just one drain, you can usually resolve the clog with a plunger. However, if it’s multiple drains, then more than likely there’s a deeper problem within your sewer line. Clogging typically occurs in the lowest point in your home first, so do pay attention to drain clogs that start on the first floor of your house, or in the basement.
Bad smelling drains can sometimes be remedied by running water down it to restore the water plug in the p-trap. However, if this does not resolve the issue, then there’s a good chance that sewage is backing up in the pipes and may need tough drain cleaning methods to relieve the clogs.
Water Spots in the Basement
As mentioned above, sewage backups typically start in the lowest part of the home. So, you may see water spots appearing around drains in the basement. This is a major signal that something is wrong with the sewer line, and if left for too long you may find yourself with a huge issue on your hands.
