Determining If You Need Sewer Rodding

Have you heard of sewer rodding in Northbrook? It’s a specialized method that’s used to help clean drains, pipes and sewer lines, resulting in clean, clear pipes that are ready to take on anything that comes their way. Our team at BMW Plumbing, Inc. can help determine if and when you’re in need of sewer rodding.

Signs You Have Blockage

Blockage in your pipes will be fairly obvious, as water will drain from your sink or shower slowly or not at all. This could also be a sign that something more serious is wrong with one of your main lines. The bottom line: if you notice any sort of blockage, it is best to call our team right away! You don’t want the blockage to become progressively worse with time.

How It Works

The process of clearing your lines uses a drain or sewer rod. To start, several rods are screwed on each end and guided into a pipe or drain. These rods work to loosen whatever is causing the blockage and can be used in rooms like your bathroom or kitchen as well.

Consider Whether Trees Could Be the Issue

If you live in a house and have large trees in your front yard, the roots could end up causing damage to your pipes. Roots are known to grow into the main sewer line and cause major damage, so this is something to consider as well.

Our team at BMW Plumbing, Inc. wants to make sure your system is working exactly as it should be. Contact our team if you’re in need of sewer rodding in Northbrook!
