An Ounce Of Prevention...

Ultimately the only thing that should get flushed into your plumbing is toilet paper, as it's designed to disintegrate. Even wipes labeled as "flushable" really aren't! But if you get past the point of prevention, we're here to help.

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!
