Sewer Line Frequently Asked Questions

What is a main sewer line?

The main sewer line is the central line that every drain connects to going out of your house or business.

How will I know if my sewer line is clogged?

There are a number of signs that will indicate a clogged drain:

1. The toilet(s) won't flush and water could be leaking out from underneath
2. If you have an outside cleanout; sewage and paper could be backing up out of it
3. Sewage backing up into the bathtub or floor drain in the basement

How do I know if my sewer line needs to be cleaned?

You will be experiencing slow drains or back ups somewhere in your house or business.

Will tree roots grow back once they have been removed?

Yes, tree roots once cleaned out usually grow back about once a year. Only two things you can do to keep roots from returning. First is to cut the tree down and grind the stump out. Second, replace the entire line with a plastic pipe.
