    An Introduction to Sewer Cleaning

    The need to maintain a clean and sanitary environment suitable for humans to live and work is common to municipalities around the world. This includes providing a system for efficiently moving both wastewater (sewage) and stormwater along with solid materials through a collection system from the source to an environmentally safe place of treatment and disposal.
    A wastewater collections system is typically a network of pipes, manholes, clean-outs, traps, siphons, lift stations and other required structures to collect all the wastewater from an area and transport it to a treatment plant or disposal system. Some systems are “combined systems” that are designed to collect both sanitary wastewater and storm or surface water runoff.
    Sewer systems can be located above or underground, typically running parallel to streets, housing, commercial and residential structures. This series of pipes and culverts are engineered as gravity flow systems, built on a slight grade to assist material flow.



    Sewer Line Replacement Services:

    Problems with your sewer line, which can be both extremely unpleasant and stressful to deal with, can occur for a variety of reasons including:

    Tree roots: One of the most common reasons why sewer lines begin to leak or burst is because tree roots have penetrated the pipes. Sometimes the trees can cause debris to back up inside the pipe, causing a clog and leading to a burst pipe, or the tree roots themselves may simply tear the pipe open enough that the sewage begins to spill out. In either case, this is a plumbing emergency which needs to be resolved as quickly as possible.

    Does Your Sewer Line Need Repairing?
    The most obvious sign that your sewer line needs to be repaired is when sewage begins backing up into your basement or yard. But in the event that the damage hasn’t escalated to that point yet, here are a few things to watch out for:

    • Residue rising out of your drain
    • Water not draining from your sinks, toilets and tubs
    • Unpleasant smells coming out of your drains
    • Multiple drains are clogged at the same time
    • Standing water near the sewer line
    • Bubbling sound when flushing the toilet or using the sink

     Sewer line cleaning and replacement is a valuable service that can improve your plumbing system immensely. On average, cleaning a sewer line costs around $301. The range vacillates between $174 and $452. Snaking, or rodding, is typically the least expensive way to clear a sewer line. 

    Quality Drain Cleaning

    Major clogging that requires drain cleaning services should be addressed by professionals. If a drain cannot be cleaned by mere hot water, vinegar, and baking soda, then the problem may be deeper than it seems. Sometimes, using these materials does not solve the problem of foul odor. In addition, a drain may look easy to clean by simply allowing the fluids to drain over time and dissolving the sludge with cleaning materials. However, not all over-the-counter cleaners can thoroughly remove the materials stuck on the walls of a drain pipe. When heavy-duty drain cleaning services are required, Rich Plumbing and HVAC is on the job.   Get A Free Estimate
