M&S has the tools to get your sewer drain free and clear of blockages so that water and waste are properly flowing. Among our many tools of the trade are various “snakes” available to remove debris/blockage and to open lines. The snakes are cables that get fed through lines and drains. These cables range in diameter from 1-¼” to 6″, and they can reach inside lines to 100 feet. For issues further than 100 feet into lines, M&S uses the jetting services.
The most common reasons for backups are due to soap residue, garbage disposal waste, hair, and grease. While these are the most common cause for issues, they are also the easiest to correct and control.
The age of your drain lines can also be a factor when backups occur. For instance, if your line has many joints and/or connections, this could lead to pipe degradation and poor infiltration. The condition of your lines itself plays a vital role in the increased likelihood of backups and failure.
Settlement, due to improper bedding of the drain lines, can cause improper flow and buildup. It is necessary to avoid improper slopes, dips, sunken joints, root infiltration and breaks.
Should you experience any warning signs, it is time to call M&S immediately. M&S will dispatch an experienced technician who will determine the source of the issue and diagnose the best solution to fix the problem. Catching troubles early will save you time, money and headaches in the long run.
