Unclogging Sewer Lines
s water backing up through your floor drains? This is a sign of trouble that should never be ignored. It means that your sewer connection to the main city sewer is clogged. As plumbers in Calgary since 1951, we have seen many things clog Calgary sewer lines.
In recent years especially, we have seen clogs caused by a build-up of disposable wipes being flushed away. Baby wipes, make-up removal wipes, bathroom disinfecting wipes -- none of these should be disposed of by flushing. These are fabric cloths that get hooked on to scale in the pipes, or ledges, dips and joints in the sewer. As the mass grows, it catches other debris, and soon the sewer is completely blocked.
A more traditional cause for concern is water-seeking tree roots which force their way through the seal around pipe joints and grow rapidly to block the sewer line. Augering the line every few years to keep it clear of roots is a necessity, but it is not a complete solution, since this only removes the roots within the pipe. If the seals are not repaired and protected from further root invasion, you will experience more blockages. As the roots grow heavier and stronger, they can even push the pipes apart at the joints and cause them to collapse.
The Gentlemen Plumbers’ sewer line repair process includes camera inspection of the sewer line, repairing joints and replacing seals and, if necessary, treating the area with a foaming herbicide root repellant to keep tree roots from choking your sewer line again.
