Atlantis Plumbing offers residential and commercial sewer maintenance and sewer cleaning.

Sewer Maintenance Agreements

Restaurants and other commercial facilities that have higher levels of use and or grease build up can benefit from periodic sewer cleaning. We offer monthly, quarterly and annual sewer maintenance agreements to help your business avoid costly sewer emergencies. Rather than wait until there is a problem, many business owners opt to stay ahead of the situation.

Periodic hydro jetting of drains and sewer lines can flush away grease clog problems before they shut down the restaurant. Not only will the sewer maintenance agreement protect you from grease clogs, they call also keep other debris such as roots from building up. Another benefit is that you can get a sewer camera inspection of your sewer system to stay on top of other potential issues such as cracks, broken sewer lines, root intrusion, disconnecting pipes due to shifting soil and other potential issues.

Residential maintenance agreements are rare, but in some cases of very high usage or poorly graded pipes, some periodic drain and sewer cleaning may be helpful. Having a sewer maintenance agreement generally will save you money over one time or emergency calls due to the fact they can be scheduled ahead of time and also that the sewer pipe access and condition is already known.

Sewer Maintenance Tips

While many sewer problems just cant be avoided, some sewer issues can be delayed or avoided all together. While grease tends to be the biggest problem, proper daily usage of your drain and sewer system can help slow down the clogged sewer issues. How can you help?

Garbage Disposal Usage

Using your garbage disposal for everything instead of your garbage can, will increase your odds of drain problems. Bones, fruit pits, potato peels are just some of the items that should be excluded.

Sure, your garbage disposal may be able to cut it up, but can your drains handle it? Debris and waste that is slow to break down, will eventually clog up the pipes. Any sediment that is heavy can accumulate over time.

In addition, grease from frying oils, chicken skins, pork and other animal fat along with other foods can stick to the inner pipes and the other debris furthering the likelihood of a clog.

Don't Flush That

it can be an embarrassing talk, but your family and guests need to know what not to flush down the toilet. The answer is very simple. 1, 2 and toilet paper and that's it! Only flush what will start to break up very easily immediately when it hits the water.

Kids will flush toys and adults will think they can flush other items, but the bottom line is that everything else should probably go somewhere else. Even many of the supposedly "flushable" women's products and the popular wet wipes can eventually overwhelm your pipes and start to accumulate.

Plants and Trees

Thirty years ago grandpa planted a tree that is sentimental to the family. While that tree has to stay, think about the other plants and trees around your home. Are they near your sewer lines?

While a beautiful landscape will add value to your home, tree roots ruining your sewer pipes can be problematic, so before you start adding to your landscaping, know where your sewer lines are and stay far away.

Most people don't think that far in advance, but some years later, people are shocked to find out that a root from a bush or a tree, traveled that far and got into the pipes.
