Galloway Township Sewer Inspection

Best Practices to Prevent a Sewer Problem in Galloway Township

Your sewer line can become clogged just like the other pipes in your Galloway Township home. Dealing with a sewer line clog can be substantially more difficult than dealing with other types of pipe clogs, because the location of the clog is much further down in the plumbing system. When you have a sewer line clog, you need a Galloway Township sewer inspection using a video camera to find out where the clog is located, the cause of the obstruction, and other important information to make a fast repair. However, it’s important that you follow a few best practices to help ensure that your sewer line lasts as long as possible.

Don’t flush garbage down your sink or toilets

It’s important that you do not flush garbage down your toilets or put garbage in your sinks. Not only is it bad for the environment, but it can fairly easily result in a sewer line clog. Avoid flushing anything down your toilet including hygiene products, paper towels, and other bathroom products or paper. The same rules apply for your sinks. Regular toilet paper can be flushed down the toilet because it does break up in the septic system, but other materials do not.

Don’t dump grease down your drain

Another major mistake that some people make is dumping grease down the kitchen sink. This is a major mistake because grease can coagulate down the sewer line and form very strong clogs that are difficult to break up even with chemical drain cleaners. Be sure that you dispose of oil and grease in the appropriate disposal bins in your town.
