As is the case with most property issues, it’s far easier to prevent drain and sewer line problems than it is to repair the resulting damage later on. The team at Vietzke Trenchless has a wealth of hands-on experience when it comes to drain repair and drain cleaning in Coeur d'Alene, ID, and we’d like to offer advice on how you may be able to head off drain problems before they have a chance to occur.
Accumulated material lodged inside a pipeline is one of the most common reasons that we’re called out to provide hydro jetting or drain snaking. Many of these calls could be avoided if property owners used perforated mesh baskets in their drains to capture loose hairs and took steps to prevent cooking grease from entering the plumbing system.
Tree Root Damage
Tree roots are often the culprit behind blocked sewers and clogged drain lines. A root system may extend dozens of feet from the base of a tree and can enter pipes through even the tiniest cracks. By removing large trees from areas adjacent to the sewer line and selectively locating new plantings, the chance of blockage and damage from tree roots may be reduced.
Subsurface pipes can be crushed by heavy overburden placed on top of them, and the effort required to repair this type of damage generally goes far beyond traditional drain cleaning services. Preventing heavy equipment from traveling directly over a buried pipeline is one effective way to avoid sewer problems due to collapsed piping.
