High Mark Plumbing can take care of your Chestermere sewer main cleaning. A sewer main is the primary drain for all the waste that is flushed from the various drains in your home or business. This includes kitchen and bathroom waste, as well as water from sink, shower, and tub.
Sewer mains, by their very nature, carry things that can naturally create clogs. One of the best things you can do for your sewer main is to be mindful of the things that you flush down your toilet or wash down your kitchen sink. Toilets should only be used to dispose of biological waste products and small amounts of toilet paper. Sometimes even that use should be limited. The people in southern Kansas, where droughts are common and water shortage is a serious consideration have a saying: “Yellow is mellow, if it’s brown, flush it down.” If your plumbing is truly delicate, you can even use a special waste basket, lined with a sealable bag, for toilet paper. Your in-sink garbage disposal presents a problem, as well. The vegetable particles that are washed down the kitchen drain can cake against the sides of the sewer main pipe and capture bits of solid matter from the bathroom. Add some toilet paper, perhaps a toy or bit of jewelry, a disposable diaper, and a tampon, and you have a recipe for a clogged pipe.
Fortunately, it isn’t an extremely difficult job to clear organic matter from your sewer main.
