How often do I need to high pressure flush my sanitary sewer line and drain?
This service should be done every six months, at minimum. Backed-up drains can cause multiple problems, from strange odours and noises and increased water bills, to very costly repairs. Maintaining your drains is necessary to avoid such disastrous and expensive problems.
My toilet is clogged all the time. I’ve never had this problem. What should I do?
You first need to schedule an inspection to determine the nature of the problem. Your sewage line may be backed up or damaged. Our experts can assess the problem using the latest in plumbing technology and fix it before it causes more damage in the future. As a rule of thumb, never put anything down the toilet besides waste and toilet paper.
How often should I schedule a plumbing inspection?
You should schedule a plumbing inspection every 12 months or when you purchase a new building.
