Sewers St. Louis
Sewers are never fun to talk about. What’s even less fun? When your sewer drain clogs and floods your home’s basement with waste. Not only can this cause extensive damage to your home, but also it can leave your home smelling like sewage and could be very costly. 

Unfortunately, if this situation happens, you probably need more than just a drain cleaning. The sewer drain that clogs is called your main drain. Main drains rarely back up unless there is something structurally wrong with the line.

Drains St. Louis
Main drains usually clog due to a few reasons:

• Foreign Objects
• Tree Roots
• Pipe Misalignment
• Pipe Belly
• Partially or Fully Collapsed Pipe

To determine the cause of your main drain blockage, a technician will lower a special camera through the pipe of your main drain. The technician will show you the image and explain what’s causing your home to flood with waste.

Rooter St. Louis
Sometimes these main sewer lines have to be replaced or can be repaired. If you choose to repair your clogged sewer line using a rotor rooter, the problem will most likely come back.

It's up to you to make the decision if you ever want sewage in your home again! Many municipalities in the St. Louis area offer sewer lateral programs. Check with your municipality to see what the city will cover, what your home owners policy will cover or what this will cost you to replace or repair.
