Sewer Line Maintenance

At Holman’s Quality Plumbing, we recognize the importance of regular sewer line maintenance to ensure the proper functioning of your plumbing system. Our sewer line maintenance services are designed to prevent potential issues and minimize the risk of sewer line backups or blockages. Through professional inspections, thorough cleanings, and preventive treatments, we help keep your sewer lines clear and free from debris, roots, and other obstructions that can lead to costly and disruptive plumbing problems.


Why is sewer line maintenance important?

Regular sewer line maintenance is crucial to prevent potential issues such as backups, blockages, and costly repairs. Maintenance helps keep sewer lines clear of debris, tree roots, and other obstructions, ensuring proper wastewater flow and avoiding plumbing emergencies.

How often should sewer lines be maintained?

The frequency of sewer line maintenance depends on various factors, including the age of the plumbing system, the number of occupants in the property, and the presence of trees or plants near the sewer lines. As a general guideline, scheduling professional maintenance every 1-2 years is recommended.

What methods are used for sewer line maintenance?

At Holman’s Quality Plumbing, we employ various methods for sewer line maintenance, including video inspections, hydro jetting, and drain cleaning. Video inspections allow us to assess the condition of the sewer lines, while hydro jetting utilizes high-pressure water to clear away debris and obstructions, promoting optimal flow.

Can I use chemical drain cleaners for sewer line maintenance?

It is not recommended to use chemical drain cleaners for sewer line maintenance. Chemical cleaners can be ineffective for larger-scale blockages and may even cause damage to the pipes. Professional sewer line maintenance services, such as hydro jetting, provide a safer and more thorough solution.

How can tree roots affect sewer lines?

Tree roots are attracted to the moisture and nutrients inside sewer lines, leading to infiltration and potential blockages. As roots grow, they can damage or penetrate the pipes, causing leaks or complete blockages. Regular maintenance helps identify and address root intrusion before it becomes a severe problem.

Can sewer line maintenance prevent all sewer-related issues?

While regular maintenance significantly reduces the risk of sewer line problems, it cannot guarantee complete prevention. Factors such as pipe deterioration, shifting soil, or external factors beyond maintenance control can still cause issues. However, consistent maintenance greatly minimizes the likelihood of major sewer line problems.
