Your home’s sewer lines and drainage play a major role in your overall plumbing system. Each time you take a bath, wash your dishes or do the laundry, dirty water is produced. Due to your drainages system, the wastewater is transported safely and efficiently back to your septic tank or a public sewer system that your home is connected to. But, because it is not just water that passes through the pipes, they can eventually get clogged up, which is why you need an expert sewer cleaning service.

There are a number of things that can clog a sewer system and require you to book a sewer cleaning. These include foreign objects, such as body wipes, tissues, and diapers, and even cat litter and cigarette butts. Tree root intrusions, grease and oil substances, improper plumbing installation, and pipe deterioration can all result in your pipes getting clogged.

Signs That You Need a Sewer Line Cleaning for Your Plumbing System

Sewer cleaning companies agree that there are certain issues that they see time and gain that lead to your pipes requiring a sewer line cleaning. If you notice a foul odor coming out of the drains, it is a sign that you have a drainage problem, which may result from a trapped substance in your system, or even broken drainage lines. Two or more drains clogged at the same time means there is a chance your drainage lines or main sewer are clogged, and if you notice your drains tend to clog frequently, it’s time to call in the experts. Also be on the lookout for slow drains and sewage water coming out of the pipes, which both indicate potential blockages.

What Happens During a Sewer Drain Cleaning?

During a sewer drain cleaning, the plumber will use professional-grade equipment, including a sewer camera, to conduct a thorough inspection. The plumber will use the equipment to locate the leak or the area where the pipe is damaged. A plumbing snake may be used to break through the clog, and a hydro-jetter will be used to wash away grease and debris within the pipes. If your pipes are damaged, sewer cleaning companies use various non-invasive methods to fix the problem, including pipe bursting, mechanical spot repair, slip-lining, and cured-in-place piping. Over the years, sewer pipes are bound to incur cracks, holes, and clogging. Other factors that require expert plumbing attention include corrosion, high pressure, bursting, and aging. The longer you leave the repairs, the costlier they are bound to be.

After repeated attempts by amateurs to fix an issue with my washing machine, they came out and removed the old hook up connection and replaced it with a new, less complicated outlet box. Once completed the washer still was not working; they took the time to diagnose the issue and were able to resolve the problem. Very pleased and will hire again.
Excellent customer service! Exceptional and friendly service and great price! Was quite a bit later than the appointment time of 10 AM but I did tell them any time was fine [i was in no rush]. They did call me a number of times to inform me as to when they would be here. David came, introduced himself [very nice]. Had to replace some parts inside the toilet which I already had and reset the toilet [as the bolts anchoring the toilet to the floor rusted out [toilet wobbling]. Replaced wax ring and bolts! Toilet now good as new! Will definitely use Ben Manis Plumbing in the future !
As a Realtor I sold a house to a young couple, where the seller was supposed to remedy the water pressure. After settlement, the water pressure was still low so I sent Ben Manis over. Ben found that the water meter was missing! The home inspector and seller's plumber both missed it. Needless to say, the water authority was there within 20 minutes to install a meter. If it weren't for Ben, the buyers could have been sold a $1500 water pressure system and would have possibly faced fines and back bills when the water department finally caught up. Honesty, integrity and attention to detail are hard to find. No one is perfect but Manis Plumbing is the best there is.
Called Sunday person that answered the phone was very professional. I told her the problem and explained it wasn't an emergency. They called me Monday morning and within an hour or two the problem as handled for a very reasonable cost. Really great workers very friendly and courteous. Very good company I'm glad I hired them
The plumber was very friendly and knowledgeable. I had a stopped kitchen sink which has a garbage disposal on it. He explained in details about my concerns about how garbage disposals work, and also explained what should and should not go in them. He accessed the problem and within a few minutes he had unclogged my drain. And, he cleaned my sink out which he didn't have to. I am very happy with Ben Manis Plumbing service as well as the plumbing technician, Eric Mendez.
Christopher of Ben Manis appeared on time, was extremely polite and efficient, explained what needed to be done and then proceeded to complete the repair. He cleaned up afterwards and left the area in excellent condition. I would highly recommend this company, and particularly, Christopher most heartily.
