Sewer Tips and Tricks

Sewer problems can sometimes be avoided. In order to steer clear of future sewer problems, be sure to implement these 3 helpful tips:

  • What do I do about a sewer gas odor? Make sure traps are full of water, since the water in floor drains and other drain traps tends to evaporate. Make sure all caps are on and secure. Sometimes a small amount of bleach poured into the drain seems to help. Call Niezgodski Plumbing for service.
  • No Grease – Grease that is liquid when you pour it into the drain from your frying pan quickly becomes a stiff, sticky, and insoluble lump inside the pipe. Grease should never be flushed or put down sink drains.
  • Avoid flushing chemicals into the wastewater treatment system. Introducing chemical compounds such as drain cleaner, paint, thinners, or other household cleaners result in imbalances at the wastewater treatment plant.
