When a drain backs up, it could be a simple clog in the bend of the pipes, or it could indicate a clog in the water main or sewer line.
Over time the oils and paper products that are flushed through sink, bathtub and toilet pipes can accumulate in the larger pipes that lead from the house to the main sewer line. This can be compounded by tree roots and other organic problems.
Most clogged drains can be eliminated with the use of augers or pipe snakes. However, over time grease and fat from your food that gets sent down the drain can cause super-clogs over time. An accumulation of sticky goo along the inside of your drain pipes traps hair and other solids, restricting the flow of wastewater; eventually leading to a complete blockage.
Many times hydro jetting or rootering can remove simple clogs before they become a larger problem.
Annual servicing can prevent problems in the future. It is not a bad idea to have your local plumber come and check your plumbing system. Often homeowners will make this part of their winterization routine.
