Since many homeowners do not think about preventive maintenance for their homes’ sanitary sewer systems, we’d like to highlight it in hopes to better inform you.

What I’d like you to take away from this blog post is simple: Doing some type of preventative maintenance for your home’s sanitary sewer system can save you aggravation and money in the long-run.

To put this in prospective, we all actually do many "preventative maintenance” tasks without really thinking about it.  For example, I bet you have the oil changed in your car on a regular mileage or time interval. You probably go to your dentist for your 6 month prophylaxis and to your physician for your yearly physical.

Well, those are all types of preventative maintenance obligations. We partake in them to not only prevent an unexpected catastrophe from blindsiding us, but also to keep things running at optimum levels.

We should have the same mindset for our homes’ sanitary sewer system, too.  There are three simple and relatively inexpensive preventative maintenance procedures that can be done to help prevent, or at least discover, if there is any underlying problems that can develop into a bigger sanitary sewer problem.

A homeowner can have the following done:

  1. A general video inspection of the sanitary sewer system. This will provide the homeowner with a benchmark of the sanitary sewer system’s condition.  Note: Always request a video clip and supporting drawings and documentation. This will serve as helpful evidence to be used for comparisons if your sewer system encounters problems later on down the road.

  2. A hydro-jet cleaning is a great idea.This procedure will clean out the main trunk line and remove build-up that has accumulated over the years. If your home has cast iron pipes, this is an excellent way to insure that waste effluent continues to flow to the main city sewer line unobstructed.

  3. Treating the sanitary sewer system biannually with an environmentally friendly and non-corrosive cleaning agent such as Bio-Clean.  This biannual treatment is simple, inexpensive and can be performed by the homeowner.


The experts at TDT Plumbing would be more than happy to provide you with these services.
