Drains are often clogged up with debris, grease build-up, as well as roots but water doesn’t ever back up into the home until after the spring rains arrive. A majority of sewer lines are already clogged up a long time before they end up backing up. I know that might not make sense at first, but think about this for a minute. After you wake up in the morning, you take your shower, have breakfast and maybe a couple of other people also taker showers and use your home’s plumbing. Your sewer line might be clogged. So what happens is the line starts filling up. The clog might be 50 to 60 feet out from the house. Normally right next to the large beautiful tree in your backyard. This means there are 50 to 60 feet of empty 4-inch or 6-inch pipe to fill up with waste and water. The line is nearly full and getting ready to overflow at the floor drain in your basement. Then everybody leaves the house for school, work, or wherever you need to go. The full pipe that is set to overflow soon begins to seep. All of the liquid that is inside of the line begins to drain down slowly through the grease or mass or roots or separations within the pipe. Then eventually all of the water is gone and the solid waste is what is left behind and the homeowner doesn’t see a sign of the drains being clogged. Many times the separations within the pipe allow roots to grow in these separations which enables water to get out to the ground.
Here at Alto Sewer, we can solve this problem. We can use our high-pressure equipment called the Hydro-Jetter to cut all of the debris and roots from the sewer line so that it returned to nearly new condition. At the end of the hose are several nozzles that have been specially designed to pull, push or cut the water, pressure, and hose through the line to clean and clear your sewer. Please call Alto Sewer if you have questions regarding the Hydro-Jetting process and what we can do to help you.
