Avoid pouring grease down the drain or putting it into toilets. Scrape the grease off of dishes and pots and pans and then place it in the trash. Use a basket or strainer in your sink drain to catch solid grease and then place it in the trash.
Mother nature also plays a role in causing sewer lines to overflow or back up in the form of the roots of trees and plants. Those roots seek water sources and take advantage of any openings they can find. Roots can penetrate a sewer line and block it.
You can take steps to help prevent roots from impacting your sewer lines by making sure you don’t plant any trees or shrubs too close to the sewer service line or your home’s cleanouts. If these are already growing near the line be sure to watch out for a reduction in water flow down the drain and contact a plumber if you suspect it’s blocked.
