Common Causes of Sewer Backup

Blockages in the city’s sanitary sewer main can lead to your sewer backing up. Tree roots can also cause problems if they expand 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 items.
  • Have BW/Cook Service Experts put in 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 clog your lines with debris and silt.
  • Replace your line and tap with plastic pipe to curb tree roots from damaging your lines.
