Collecting and removing wastewater is the main purpose of a drainage system. An efficient drainage system prevents the sewers and septic tanks from producing gases. Drainage systems also help keep the water away from walkways and driveways and help minimize flooding. They are an important part of the plumbing system inside a building.

The system should follow the basic hygienic guidelines and should be able to withstand extreme weather conditions.

This is why it is recommended to install the sewer lines using an expert team at once, to minimize the risks of damages and repairs. It is often difficult to pinpoint the causes of sewer line damages, but it could be due to some of these reasons. Tree roots can be naturally attracted to the small leaks in the sewer pipes, and wrap themselves around the pipes that can break, weaken, or clog the pipes.
Corrosion is another cause. Most of the sewer pipes are made of steel or cast iron, and they’re galvanized to prevent corrosion. Small particles of the galvanized areas once damaged can lead to corrosion. Debris and other objects can also cause clogging. Digging a trench around the pipe or trenchless pipe repairs are options you can use, before considering a replacement.

Sump Pump Replacement
Sump pumps are important equipment of plumbing that helps protect your property from floods, water damage, and astronomical repairs. Monitoring the status of your sump pump now and then will save you from these hassles. Sump pumps need replacements every 7-10 years.

Clogged Kitchen Sink
A clogged kitchen sink can be the conclusion when your kitchen sink is not draining properly or drains very slowly. Most often, you can feel a bad odor too. Clogs of the kitchen sink can be due to oil, small objects, food particles, or grease not being disposed of through the drainage system. If the blockage continues, the pipes can be damaged, or worse, get burst. Plunging can help with kitchen sinks, where the cup plungers can use the seal and pressure mechanism to force the blockage to be released. Make sure your sink contains enough water to submerge the plunger in. If needed, an expert can visit and inspect your garbage disposal, and use advanced technology or equipment to unclog the sink for you.
Clogged toilets can be one of the most unpleasant experiences you can go through. If you do not own a plunger, it can get worse. A blocked toilet can interrupt your day-to-day life and even require a plumbing and drainage expert’s help. A plunger helps in most cases. It is one of the most important pieces of equipment to keep in your household. A plunger eliminates the air, and once a good seal is built, water will rush down the drain. However, where home remedies don’t work, you will need to contact a plumber to unclog the toilet for you. They have advanced methods to apply pressure and force the waste down the drains and will succeed in unclogging your toilet at all times.
Clogged Bathroom Sink
A bathroom sink can become clogged with hair, soap scum, or any other objects being trapped in the p-trap. Damaged pipes can be another reason. When hair clumps are stuck, the best method to unclog is by using a pair of long tweezers to remove the hair. Disassembling the drain will give you a better view of what is stuck, and where it is stuck. During the use of hard water, soap scum can also build up in the pipes and foster mold and mildew.
Pouring hot water or water with baking soda and vinegar down the drain will help with this situation. However, in other cases such as a block near the p-trap or damaged pipes, it is wise to seek a service expert to unclog your bathroom sink and clear up the drainage for you.
Bathtubs can easily get clogged with hair and soap/shampoo buildup. Shaving in the tub or hair fall can be the main culprit of the clogged bathtubs. Sometimes, even debris and other objects can get stuck in the drainage and cause a blockage. To fix a clogged bathtub, the stopper or strainer needs to be removed first. Once removed, you can run the water down the drain to see if there’s any hair, buildup, or debris blocking the drainage.
Once these obstacles are removed or dissolved, your bathtub is likely to function normally again. However, in rare cases where your bathtub is still unclogged, it might be due to damaged pipes or a complicated situation in your drainage system. Contact a professional to inspect your bathtub and the drainage to find the best solution for you.
