How To Protect Your Sewer Lines This Summer

With the warm summer months already here, you may be spending more time at showers, planning pool parties with family or friends, and inviting guests to your home. These activities not only add extra wear and tear to your fixtures but to your sewer lines as well. 

While you can always get sewer line repair in Akron, OH from C. Lee Services whenever there’s a problem, you can take preventive measures to avoid emergencies and enjoy the season. Here are a few ways you can protect your sewer lines this summer to keep everything running smoothly.

Use Your Garbage Disposal Properly

You may be planning to host gatherings and barbecue nights this warm season. It can be tempting to dispose of your food scraps in your garbage disposal, but the wrong scraps can result in clogs and even damage.

That said, avoid putting porous and fibrous foods into the disposal. Throw fruit pits, coffee grounds, grease, and oil in the trash bin instead. If any of those foods or residues make their way down your kitchen sink drain or garbage disposal, they can eventually affect your sewer lines and cause a backup. Sewer repair services may be necessary to clear it.

Tackle Leaks and Clogs

Inspect your home for possible leaks and clogs. Even a seemingly minor leak can lead to much bigger problems. Meanwhile, a clog that is left unaddressed for too long can result in a sewer backup. Clean up what you can manage from any leaks you find. Apart from your indoor fixtures, it also pays to have your sewer inspected by a professional for similar issues and get the necessary sewer pipe line repair.

Watch Out for Tree Roots

Frequent showers and toilet flushing, combined with occasional summer thunderstorms, can strain your sewer system. Worse, tree roots may invade your line through pipe cracks, causing a blockage. To avoid an untimely sewer line replacement, schedule a professional inspection and have tree roots and other debris removed.

Use Your Toilet Properly 

You will probably have guests visiting your home during summer, which means more people will use your bathroom. That said, remind them to avoid using your toilet as a trash can. This means not flushing anything but waste and toilet paper. Wipes, paper towels, and feminine hygiene products should be thrown away instead of flushed.
