Sewers & Drains

Sewers and drains are like the cardiovascular system of your building's plumbing, and when they become damaged or clogged, your normal life 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. If these issues go unaddressed, the water damage your home might sustain could quickly become catastrophic.

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 with honest drain cleaning service.

  • Backed up drains in your home.
  • Drainage in sewer clean out pipe.
  • Water backs up in shower when toilet flushes.

How to clean out a main sewer line clog?

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.
What is a drain or main drain house clean-out?

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!
