"Will use again when I have a plumbing need. Pete was great. Highly recommend." - Chuck K.
Sewers and drains are like the cardiovascular system of your plumbing, and when they become damaged or clogged, your house’s functions can come to a halt. You might notice backups that flood into your home, drains that don’t drain or soggy areas on your lawn where there is a leak. PDM is here to tackle all of these issues and more.
Putting things down the drain that should not go will clog a sewer drain line! Only toilet paper should go down the toilets.
You can tell if the sewer line is clogged a few different ways:
- Backed up drains in your home.
- Drainage in sewer clean out pipe.
- Water backs up in shower when toilet flushes.
If you think you have a sewer line clog, we can help. Contact PDM Plumbing today for professional services guaranteed to get your home back up and running soon!
There are two ways a plumber will decide to clean out a main sewer line clog:
- Snake - The most common way to unclog a drain, a snake uses different rotating attachment heads to loosen and remove obstructions in the line.
- Hydro-Jetting - This method uses high-pressured water to completely clear out a line.
A main drain house clean-out is a pipe that is located outside of the home. They appear to be a capped pipe sticking up out of the ground about 4 - 6 inches. The clean-outs provide access to your main sewer line and will be accessed if your line is clogged. To learn more or to schedule a plumbing service, contact the experts at PDM today!
One of the most common causes for a backed up drain include the accumulation of non-flushable items, including:
- Paper Towels
- Baby Wipes
- Female Hygiene Products
- Cat Litter
- Toys Your Child Flushed For Fun
Only toilet paper is meant to go down your plumbing, because it readily disintegrates. Nothing else labeled “flushable” is actually flushable!
But when you’re past the point of prevention, we’re here to help you.
