Most homeowners don’t consider sewer pipe maintenance to be part of their usual housekeeping routine, but they probably should be. This is because resolving a potential drain issue while it is small is often much easier (and cheaper) than waiting until they start causing serious problems.
Drain problems can be extremely unpleasant. They can result in:
– Strange gurgling sounds every time you use the bathroom
– Clogs and back-ups that overflow onto your floors
– Sewage flooding from toilets
– Raw sewage entering the bathtub or shower waste
– Drains that drain slowly away
– A vile smell throughout your property
Fortunately, drain jetting can help. Technicians fit a special nozzle to a jetting machine with a long hose and then feed it through your drains. The machine then ejects water at high pressure into the insides of the pipes, scouring them and cleaning anything away that might cause a blockage with enough force to clear any blockage.
Because the power of the jet is so extreme, it causes everything in its path to disintegrate and flow through the pipework and out into the mains.
Some customers have their pipework jetted every 12 months to keep things flowing smoothly as a preventative measure. Blockages can put your property at risk of clogs and flooding and all of the unpleasant side effects as described above.
If you are already experiencing back-ups, bad smells and signs of flooding, then arrange a drain jetting service as soon as possible. Dealing with the problem before it becomes a big issue will be cheaper than leaving it until it becomes an emergency.
