A sewer cleanout is essential to the plumbing system inside any home in the Lincoln Park neighborhood.
Most homeowners should know if their sewer cleanouts are functioning properly. By understanding the maintenance of a sewer line, you can prevent major sewer line problems.
What is a Sewer Cleanout?
A drain cleanout prevents unnecessary damage to yourLincoln park home since it allows plumbers to easily access your pipes to clear clogs.
A sewer cleanout is a plastic pipe that connects to the main sewer line. It enables easy access to the sewage system for maintenance and repairs.
Plumbing companies can get into your sewer system easier if there is a sewer cleanout installed in your Lincoln park home.
Locating a Sewer Cleanout
For most homes, your sewer cleanout is between your home and the location of the municipal sewer system or septic tank.
Most sewer cleanouts have a plastic cap covering that makes them easy to locate in your yard.
Your outdoor drain cleanout located near the lateral sewer line is typical. This pipe connects your private sewer system to the public sewer system. Drain cleanouts located inside are typically in basements or bathrooms near the main sewer line inside.
Importance of Sewer Cleanouts
If your Lincoln Park home does not have a sewer cleanout, it is important to have one installed as soon as possible.
Any clogs in your septic system or drainage pipes can cause sewage water to seep into your home.
Avoid such a terrible thing by having sewer cleanouts installed on your main sewage line.
Without one, plumbers will dig up trenches in your yard to access the sewer line for cleaning and repairs.
This can result in costly damage and inconvenience for homeowners. Only plumbing professionals should install a sewer cleanout to ensure it is up to code.
What Causes a Sewer Line to Back Up?
The most common type of sewer backup is from clogged pipes. Blockages are a result of fat or oil buildup, food particles, or too many paper towels.
Ultimately, sewer backups are caused by some sort of obstruction like tree roots, debris, or even full capacity.
