Question: How often should I have my sewer line cleaned?
Answer: Most areas recommend servicing (cleaning) your sewer line at least once per year. Colorado Springs Utilities states that if you don’t have your (the sewer lines that run under your property) sewer lines cleaned at least once each year, they are not be responsible for damage due to a sewage backup regardless of the cause.

Question: Can I prevent drains from clogging?
Answer: In some cases it is possible to prevent drains from clogging by simply performing routine maintenance on the line. In many older areas in Colorado Springs, the original clay sewer lines are still in place, and these jointed sewer lines allow tree roots to enter the line and clog the drain. Annual, or semi-annual rooting of the lines can often prevent a full-blown line clog – and subsequent sewer backup into your home.

Question: How can I stop these tree roots from growing in my line and causing backups?

Question: Why in my water pressure low? Can the water pressure in my home be increased?
Answer: In some cases, simply adjusting the water pressure regulator can increase the water pressure in your home. Some older homes have iron water pipes instead of copper. These iron water pipes can corrode and restrict water volume and pressure. If you have low water pressure, let us check your water supply system and we’ll let you know  exactly how we can help.
