Question #5 What should you do if your sewer lines back up or you suffer from constant slow draining of sinks and tubs?
Answer: Sewer lines are frequently subject to clogs or slow draining due to build-up in the pipe. While build-up is not completely avoidable, there are things which contribute to it. The most common instances are when grease is poured in the disposal while running hot water. The back up can lead to bigger problems.
Pouring chemicals into your drains are not always the best long term answer. Also, if you can determine that the problem is a sewer line, trying to fix it on your own cold lead to much bigger problems. Digging into the ground to find the sewer pipe section, could inadvertently damage other underground pipes and lines. If you determine that sewer line work is necessary, your best bet is to contact a professional.
