Pdm Drain And Sewer Job
What causes a clogged sewer drain line?

Putting things down the drain that should not go will clog a sewer drain line! Only toilet paper should go down the toilets.

How do you know if the sewer line is clogged?

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!

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!

Prevention is the Best Cure

One of the most common causes for a backed up drain include the accumulation of non-flushable items like:

Only toilet paper is meant to go down your drain because it readily disintegrates. Nothing else labeled “flushable” is actually flushable! 

Other Causes of Sewer Issues: Aging, cracked sewer lines can be problematic as well as tree roots clogging the drain.

But when you’re past the point of prevention, we’re here to help you.
