We Can Help You Prevent Sewer Backups in Kitchener

Sewer backups are a pricey mess. Damage and restoration can be costly—on average, about $4,400.

Hammond Plumbing & Heating can help you avoid that by making sure you have a backflow assembly. This acts as a safeguard against backups.

The majority of homeowners may not know they’re responsible for maintaining and repairing the sewer lateral. This is the pipeline between the Kitchener sanitary sewer main and your house.

No matter what’s making your sewer back up or become congested, make sure to get in touch with us as soon as you find a problem. Stopping it early can help you avoid expensive destruction to your basement.

Common Causes of Sewer Backup

Obstructions in the city’s sanitary sewer main can cause your sewer to back up. Tree roots can also lead to problems if they grow into your lines.

There are a couple you can do to avoid a backup.

  • Get rid of waste correctly.
  • Don’t put grease down your drain.
  • Don’t flush paper towels, wet wipes or feminine goods.
  • Have Hammond Plumbing & Heating install a backwater prevention valve to prevent sewer backflows.
  • Have us look for and fix incorrect plumbing connections, like French drains, sump pumps or other flood control systems. These connections can obstruct your lines with debris and silt.
  • Put in a new line and tap with plastic pipe to prevent tree roots from damaging your lines.
