There’s so much to love about Dayton. Its historical neighborhoods, world-class performing arts center, and fine dining restaurants are much to be proud of. However, problems with the City’s drainage lines were also something their inhabitants were very aware of.
That’s why starting the year 2015 an ambitious plan was designed to minimize the cases of blockages and overflows in the wastewater system. Millions of dollars were invested in improving part of the sewer lines and removing tons of debris from them, which were not only impacting the health and welfare of the community but also causing property damage, odors, and pollution.
Thanks to this, overflows, water intrusions, and stoppages decreased significantly. The City has done their part, but… have you done yours?
Keep Your Drains Clean
As a homeowner, you are responsible for the drain system on your property. This means that if you happen to get it clogged up or damaged, it is up to you to get it repaired. And even though some clogs can seem to be solved by pouring a bottle of Drano down the drain, in reality, this is just a temporary solution, and you can almost be certain that the clog will be back with a vengeance.
Tree roots are also a source of blockages. Once they get into the drain line they rapidly grow and act as a filter that catches anything that passes through them, blocking the pipe. When this happens, you will notice that your water starts to drain very slowly after taking a shower or flushing the toilet. And good luck trying to get rid of tree roots with Drano. You will just waste your time.
Professional Drain Cleaning Service
The best thing you can do when your pipes are clogged is to hire a skilled plumber who can do a professional drain cleaning. In Dayton, OH, you should call CME as soon as you notice any problems with your plumbing system. They will not pour some useless chemical into your drains, but instead use the latest plumbing technology to remove the clog.
This is done by a process called hydro-jetting, where a nozzle is inserted into your drain. As it travels through the pipe, it sends a highly pressurized stream of water -we’re talking about 3,500 PSI- that breaks away scale buildups, roots, and any obstructions it encounters. After that, all the debris will flow downstream into the city’s main sewer line.
Once the pipe has been cleaned out, a video inspection is recommended, and CME provides this service free of charge. Using a tiny video camera connected to an external monitor, the pipeline is checked from the inside to verify that the clog has entirely been removed. This also lets the plumber observe any other issues that could represent a problem shortly, such as cracks on the surface of the pipe, or joints that are starting to open up, so you can take preventive action and fix them as soon as possible.
For your next drain cleaning or sewer repair, call CME at 513-672-8302. Let them handle all the licensing and certification needed for your plumbing task and put their 20 years of experience at your service.
