Vaughan Comfort Services How to maintain sewer lines?

Written by Vaughan Comfort Services on . Posted in .

With typical sewer line replacement costs falling between $5,000 and $8,000, we recommend regular maintenance to keep your system running smoothly. Here are a few tips on proper sewer line maintenance.

  • CALL A PROFESSIONAL FOR MAJOR ISSUES: If you are experiencing any major clogs or backups, contact Vaughan Plumbing to resolve the issue. Our team has the ability to clean main sewer lines up to 200’ and video camera inside sewer piping up to 100’.
  • DON’T’T FLUSH THE WRONG ITEMS: Ensure only waste and toilet paper are flushed down the toilets to reduce your chances of clogs and buildup. Even products designed for flushing, such as disposal toilet wipes, could cause sewer line problems.
  • LIMIT GARBAGE DISPOSAL WASTE: Don’t place certain food, such as eggshells, potato skins or bones, in the disposal. To avoid unwanted clogging, deposit them in the trash or compost.
  • MAINTAIN YOUR LANDSCAPING: Tree roots can grow into your sewer line and cause blockages, keep shrubs and trees well maintained and cut back any nearby roots.
  • THROW OIL AWAY IN THE TRASH: Avoid pouring oil or grease down the kitchen drain line. These substances will solidify, creating build-up and clogs. Safely dispose of cooled grease in the trash instead.
