Sewer and Drain Cleaning

It is important to know where the sewer cleanout is in case of an emergency. If your sewer line stops up and the stoppage is from the house to the sewer main, you can relieve the pressure from the line by removing the cap. The sewer cleanout could be concrete on older houses. On newer homes it could be black for ABS pipe but more than likely it will be white for PVC pipe. If you don't see a cap or piece of pipe coming up out of the ground, it might be covered up from landscaping or grass has grown over it. Check with your neighbor on each side of you to see if their cleanout is in the back yard, if so then yours should be in your back yard. Look within three feet of the house. On even newer homes, the cleanout could come out at the corner of the house.

A sewer line should have 1/4" per 1 foot of fall. If the line drops to fast, the water goes off and leaves the toilet paper and waste behind. If the line is flat and holds water, it will lose its flushing momentum when it hits the pocket of water thus leaving everything to build up in this section. Where the line starts to fall again, it is only flowing water, leaving everything else behind to build up.

 

If you have a problem with commodes or sewer lines stopping up, we recommend Scott 1000 flush toilet paper. It breaks up 4 times faster than other toilet paper.
