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.
