                                        Sewage Back Ups

 When backup occur the damage can be devastating.

Many of us promise ourselves to get a bi-yearly cleanout only to never keep the appointment.

The rotor man can charge hundreds in some cases ,however, you may want to try cleaning the drain yourself before flipping the bill for drain cleaning.  

Many house backups can be cleared by homeowners. In a lot of cases all a stoppage need is a little push to clear itself. One way you can accomplish this is to find a garden hose. By stuffing a rag around it tightly and gradually turning the water on slowly should be enough to clear many stoppages specially if they are not too long over due. Clearing out stopped up drain are sometimes easy and sometimes a nightmare. I am a strong believer in do it your self, rent a snake, drain cleaning, reasons are: you can keep your snake in the drain a little longer, and you can also clean all your drains.

By keeping the snake in the drain longer and running it back and forth you do the kind of drain cleaning no body else will do for you without paying big-time overages.

You can also clean all your drains. After the main drain is clean go to the furthest drain away from the street clean all the drain in the house working your way back to the main drain which should be closes to the street,

 Now if you want thing to go smoothly just remember one thing SEND YOUR SNAKE IN ONE FOOT AT A TIME when there is binding or resistance. Also keep in mind that there are a few ways you can loose your snake; when operating a drain cleaning machine, be careful when you start to run out of snake, the weight of the snake all ready in the drain can pull the snake out of the machine and down the drain.

Also, in some cases your snake can get stuck, to free your snake

run it in reverse.                            

 

 

 

 

Type of stoppage

There are two kinds of stoppages:

1) There is the gradual build up stoppage, (grease, hair, and enzymes.) 

2) There is the instance stoppage, (something stuck in drain.)

If you have an instance stoppage you can try the water hose technique.

But if you have a gradual build up you may need a heavy-duty drain-cleaning machine.   

 

 

Drain Cleaners

Usually drain cleaner do not work on sewage stoppages.
