Sewer & Drain Cleaning for Residential Properties by JC Plumbing

Having plumbing problems or a clogged sewer drain can happen to anyone at any given time, and often, it isn’t as simple as throwing some Chemical Drain Cleaner down the blocked or slow drain and wait for the clog inside to go away, there is a process that is required to be followed so as to achieve the objective that is to have clean sewers. This article seeks to guide people on sewer and drain cleaning.

When one has the intent of sewer and drain cleaning, someone should always start from inside the house. The trap and trap arm are the first places stoppages inside drains will occur. Then go to the outside to clean out and remove the plug or cap. If possible, it is highly advisable to run cold water through, it should be noted that hot water should never be used in the place of cold. This will moisten the residue and wash the line clean. People should always remember to always use a ground fault interrupter in line with the electrical cord to prevent electrical shock.Once the line is clear the best thing to do is, run a high pressure jet.  With water jetting you can remove all of the rust scales that were left behind by the cable.

It does not really matter where someone’s drainage system is clogged; all plumbers will advise clients against the use of chemical drain cleaner to fix a totally blocked drain. To clear a completely blocked drain you will need some professional plumbing tools and drain cleaning equipment like a sewer jet. A sewer jet will blast away the blockage and restore the pipes to a good condition. After using a sewer jet, it is always a good idea to test the integrity of your sewer systems using a hydrostatic line tester. If there were any already existing leaks in the pipe system sealed up by debris, that temporary seal was washed away by the sewer jet. The hydrostatic line tester will help you identify such leaks so you can repair and prevent further damage.

As such sewer and drain cleaning is an act that requires qualified personnel to carry out the job so as to achieve the best possible result and so that the sewer and drainage lines can be in proper working condition. By hiring qualified personnel, this will also aid in ensuring that the sewer line is in the best of condition.
