High Mark Plumbing can handle your sewer main cleaning in Refrew-Collingwood Vancouver BC. Your sewer is an important part of your household infrastructure. It carries away black and gray water, delivering it to either a septic tank or a waste water processing center. This keeps pollutants out of waterways, and separated sewage from groundwater drains.
Sewers can be compared to arteries in the human body. Arteries carry depleted blood back to the heart and lungs where it can be re-oxygenated and sent out again through blood veins to the various parts of your body. A sewer carries waste water away from your home, and it goes to the waste water plant where it is cleaned and made ready to join the water in streams or lakes. Like arteries, sewer lines can become clogged.
One of the worst offenders for clogging drains is household cooking grease. Like cholesterol, it clings to the sides of drain pipes, slowly building up. If that were all it did, that would be enough. But it mixes with both bathroom and kitchen solids, encouraging them to build up inside pipes. Add a few invasive tree roots – trees love the goodies that are inside sewer lines – and you have an instant recipe for a clogged sewer line. A partial solution is to pour used cooking oil in a can or jar to be thrown away when it cools. Some types of cooking grease can even be saved and reused – potatoes fried in bacon grease for example. Cholesterol city, but so delicious!
