There is a really important part of your plumbing system that doesn’t get a whole lot of attention: your sewer line. The reason why it’s often left alone is because it’s located underground; hidden, and out of sight. Because of this fact, we will often see sewer mains that are poorly maintained and in need of some TLC.
As a homeowner, you may not notice that you even have a problem until you have backups all throughout your home. In some cases, that may be too late – and a repair just won’t cut it.
We’ve been doing this a long time, so we know what’s normal and what’s not. If your sewer main is backing up more than once a year, and you find yourself calling in a drain cleaning team often, then it’s time to consider replacement. Though it seems like a bad option, in the end you will save time and money.
Another piece of your plumbing system that deserves attention is the vent stack. A vent stack is used to filter gases away from your home. It’s used to create an air supply to give the drains and toilets in your house easy operation. Without one, you’d be in for a big mess when doing simple tasks like flushing the toilets.
Waste is removed through the vent stack and is taken to sewer main, so you and your family don’t have to deal with sewage backup in your home. Normally, they are maintenance free, but sometimes problems can still arise.
Trust us – if you are having a vent stack problem you’ll know it! Your drains will gurgle frequently and you will smell sewer gas odors coming from the drains.
