The sewerage system of a property is usually connected to the main city sewer through a sewer line. The home/property owner is always responsible for maintaining the line from the property to the connection with the main drain. The link may be on the street or past the property line.
In most cases, sewer plumbing involves the unclogging and repair of floor drains, kitchen sinks, bathtubs, grease traps and toilets. In addition to that, other companies may decide to offer services of unclogging and fixing main sewer lines, catch basins, and overhead sewers.
After clearing the line, a plumber will check the condition of the pipe by using advanced camera technology to find the source of clogs. If the tube is broken or cracked, the owner of the home is required to repair the part of the tube that connects the house and the property line.
To avoid spending lots of money on sewer repairs, you should find the cause of the sewer spills, because it is the leading cause of spills on private properties. By maintaining your sewer line by making it clean and open, you can save money on sewer plumbing costs and cleaning bills.
