Maintaining a Health Sewer Line

You can do several different things to maintain a healthy sewer line. First, you should never flush any large or bulky objects, cat litter, feminine hygiene products, or diapers down your toilet.

Next, you should add drain covers over all your drains. These will help catch hair, larger food particles, and other debris from getting into the drain line. To clean the drain cover, empty it into your trash can and wipe it out with a damp cloth.

You can also use bacterial products periodically to help break down waste and reduce the risks of clogs in the sewer line, such as Bio-Clean. Lastly, you will want your plumber to perform regular maintenance and camera inspections to ensure your sewer lines are healthy.
