Of course, like any good family, we have some advice to help you and your sewer line manage a Denver winter in your older home. This time of year, when the weather is cold, we tend to spend more time indoors. Add in holiday entertaining and extra time off work or school, and it’s easy to see that our sewer lines work extra hard. That’s fine, until there’s a problem.
Here are some sewer line maintenance tips designed to help you avoid any hassles with your water and sewer lines and drains—while quickly catching any problems that may occur!
First, if you have water and or sewer lines or plumbing exposed to temperature extremes, consider wrapping them in insulating material. Depending on its location and age, you may want to consider wrapping your hot water heater, as well. Special insulating kits can be purchased from a variety of home improvement stores, and they can save you money and ensure your heater is working at its capacity. Some of our clients also add insulation inside cupboards or cabinets that have an outdoor exposure to guard against the effects of extreme temperature changes on pipes.
Keeping your drains clear also helps. For example, scrape your plates before you put them in the sink, even if you have a garbage disposal. Doing so reduces system stress. Likewise, let hot grease or oil cool before disposing of it in the trash, not the drain. Because cooled grease becomes a solid, it can accumulate and cause serious problems. In the bathroom, use hair catcher plugs over your bathtub drain—this is a simple and effective solution to one of the most common clogs we encounter when running a sewer line maintenance scope.
Scheduling an annual scope as a routine sewer maintenance tool also helps. We offer a residential coupon on our homepage that allows us to scope and clean your line for just $79. This limited time offer is for residential homeowners only, and it’s a great way to avoid headaches down the road. Best of all, even if we find a problem, our expert technicians can offer a solution that protects your budget and your investment. We even offer in-house financing to make problem-solving a sewer maintenance line problem as simple as calling Go Direct Services at 303-288-0309 any time, day or night.

From all of us, we wish you the best of 2019.
