We Can Help You Prevent Sewer Backups in Elkhart

Sewer backups are an expensive mess. Damage and repairs can be expensive—on average, about $4,400.

BW/Cook Service Experts can help you steer clear of that by validating you have a backflow assembly. This protects against backups.

Most homeowners may not know they’re obligated to maintain and repair the sewer lateral. This is the pipeline that connects the Elkhart sanitary sewer main and your residence.

At BW/Cook Service Experts, our plumbers and specialists have the knowledge, certification and aptitude to perform everything related to sewer service and sewer inspection.

No matter what’s leading your sewer to overflow or become congested, make sure to call us as soon as you realize there’s an issue. Taking care of it early can help you avoid costly destruction to your home.

Common Causes of Sewer Backup

Blockages in the city’s sanitary sewer main can cause your sewer to back up. Tree roots can also cause problems if they get tangled in into your lines.

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

  • Dispose of waste the right way.
  • Don’t put grease down your drain.
  • Don’t flush paper towels, wet wipes or feminine products.
  • Have BW/Cook Service Experts add a backwater prevention valve to prevent sewer backflows.
  • Have us check for and fix incorrect plumbing connections, like French drains, sump pumps or other flood control systems. These connections can clog your lines with debris and silt.
  • Replace your line and tap with plastic pipe to curb tree roots from damaging your lines.
