Being mostly out of sight, your home sewer system tends to remain out of mind until something goes wrong. While it may appear to be a complex maze of pipes, fittings, and valves, your home plumbing system is rather simple. If your sewer becomes clogged, there is a good reason. If your home is not draining properly, the problem can be the main drain within the house or the property service connection that connects the home to the main sewer line. Obstructions in the property service connection can result from grease build-up, a solid object flushed into the drain line, a caved in line, a swag in the line that allows solids to settle and eventually obstruct the line or roots that have entered unsealed joints or slipped through cracks in the pipe. To avoid these problems, you should never flush or dump solid objects, hair, cloth or grease and fats into your drain system. It is wise not to plant trees over or near the property service connection. If you are experiencing slow drainage problems, don’t wait to call a professional (De Hart Plumbing). The longer you wait, the worse the problem gets, the higher the cost will be to get it fixed. De Hart Plumbing, serving Manhattan Kansas, Junction City Kansas and Wamego Kansas.
