Sewer Line Rodding & Inspection
Sewer Rodding Services in SE Wisconsin & NE Illinois
Everything that goes down your sinks, shower drains, and toilets flow through your main sewer line. When a problem arises, like a clog or a blockage, it will affect the performance of your drains.
A leading cause of sewer line clogs is the grease, oils, and fats that are poured down kitchen sinks. Those substances harden and buildup once cooled, even if you wash them down with hot water. Flushing anything other than human waste and toilet paper down your toilets can also lead to a clogged sewer line. There are some sewer blockages that are not simple rodding jobs. Broken or ruptured pipes, pipes blocked by tree roots, and sagging sewer lines will need to be repaired or replaced to fix the problem and restore normal performance. Having your sewer lines cleaned every 18 – 22 months is the best way to prevent clogs.
Rodding is an effective method for cleaning & unclogging sewer lines, pipes, and drains. Our licensed plumbers have worked on underground plumbing systems of all shapes and sizes, including sewer lines. When you call Northern Mechanical for sewer services, you can trust that our courteous professionals will arrive on time with all the equipment they need to get the job done, including state-of-the-art sewer cameras. Before rodding your sewer line, we use a sewer camera to locate and identify the source of your clog. At the first sign of sewer problems, you should have a video inspection completed.
Sewer Line Clog Warning Signs
The effects of a sewer line clog become more noticeable as the problem gets worse. Be on the look out for warning signs including:
- If you flush your toilet and water backups in your shower or tub, or your sink or toilet overflows when you turn your washing machine on, it’s time for an inspection.
- When drains are slow and your unclogging efforts have failed, the clog is most likely in your main sewer line.
- Toilet clogs are the first sign of sewer problems. If your toilet is clogged as well as other drains in your house, you’ve likely got a blockage in your sewer line.
Gurgling in Your Toilet
- If you turn your bathroom sink on and the toilet bubbles or makes gurgling sounds, air is getting trapped in your plumbing system and you may have a clogged sewer line.
