Sewer Maintenance


Roots and grease are the number one cause of sewer spills for both public and private sewer systems. Therefore, everyone has a stake in preventing sewer spills. Performing regular maintenance and practicing good habits will aid in eliminating these spills. For example, Rooter-Man Plumbers of San Diego are  dedicated to cleaning the sewer mains biannually, we video inspect the lines on a five year cycle, and schedule sewer line replacements as a means to continually provide optimal service and capacity. Homeowners and business owners must share in the responsibility of preventing sewer spills. This can be accomplished by performing annual maintenance on service laterals (either by snaking or hydro-jetting) and by practicing responsible habits.

• Never dump cooking grease down the drain. Instead, once the grease has hardened, deposit the grease in a trash receptacle.
• Never flush non-soluble material down the drain. Examples include feminine hygiene products, food, rags, diaper wipes, etc.
• Call Rooter-Man Plumbers of San Diego at 858-679-0585 if you are experiencing problems with your system. By video inspecting your system, we will be able to determine if there is a line failure or a blockage.
