Are You Having to Get Your Sewer Main Line Rootered Once a Year?

Do you have your sewer main line rootered once a year to maintain it? You shouldn’t have to do that -- like ever.

A sewer system that’s working properly should not back up. Period. If the line has backed up, there’s obviously a problem. Either they flushed something that shouldn’t have gone down the line, or they have offsets, bellies, or roots in the line. Once you start having those issues, the pipe will eventually fail. Sooner or later, it will totally collapse, or it will shift so much that nothing will be able to get by. At that point, you’re limited in your options. At that point, your only option is to dig. The longer you let it go, the fewer options you have.

sewer main line rootered every year

When talking with Matt Hansen, who oversees our Drains Department here at Any Hour Services, he said that if a homeowner is clearing their main line on a regular basis, it’s usually an indication of a bigger problem. Roots, cracks, offsets, bellies -- it’s just a matter of time before it fails.

Unfortunately, people usually wait until they have a major backup to have their main line inspected. By then, you end up with flooding, not to mention the inconvenience of taking time off of work, replacing carpet or flooring . . . it’s such a mess. 

If you’re a homeowner and you are having to rooter your main line every year, it would be a good idea to have a camera inspection done of your main line so that you can see what is actually causing the problem and decide whether you want to fix it or continue rootering the line.
