Cleaning a Sewer Line.

Go around the room sometime and ask everyone something they find repugnant.  Then, hit them with…how about cleaning out a sewer line?  I’ll bet that you get plenty of EWWWs!  Cleaning a sewer line is not only nasty business, it is absolutely necessary if you plan on continuing to live in your Seattle area home.

Here are some of the steps that your friendly sewer line cleaner will take –

1.  He will loosen the cap on the drain pipe.
2.  Then, open the cap and let the build-up drain out.
3.  Feed the auger cable into the pipe.
4.  Hose down the pipe.
5.  Then, slowly and skillfully pull the auger from the pipe.

Sounds like a good time, doesn’t it?  Of course not!  It is a routine job for professional sewer line cleaner Shawn Allen.  Shawn is the owner of Allen Plumbing located in Snohomish and serving the greater Seattle area.  He can be found on the web at plumbersnohomish.com.  Call Shawn and let him do the dirty work at (425) 367-4744.

Is It DIY or Isn’t It?

There are many jobs in our life that we tackle on our own.  We paint, we do minor repairs to our residence, maybe we are emboldened enough to work on our cars or even our plumbing.  Enter at your own risk!  If you make a mistake it could be costly, and yet we tackle challenging tasks quite often in the Seattle area.

Why should you hire a plumber?  Here are some reasons –

1.  He has the latest equipment
2.  The solution will more likely be permanent rather than temporary
3.  They can do a detailed diagnosis of the problem
4.  Pure and simple…they are professionals at what they do

Sometimes we may not give enough credence to that final point.  A professional plumber does the job right and guarantees the work when he is finished!  Just such a person is Shawn Allen of Allen Plumbing and found on the web at plumbersnohomish.com.  Make the right choice, call Shawn for your plumbing needs at (425) 367-4744.

It all Comes Back to the Sewer Line.

All of your plumbing fixtures including the drains and pipes in your home are connected to the biggest (and most important) piece of plumbing in your entire home…the main sewer line.  Ranging from improper or repeated use of these fixtures, drains, and pipes and many other outside factors, the main sewer line can take a beating.

What are some of the common causes of a clogged sewer line?

1.  Severe damage to the pipes
2.  Sewer lines sag and sink over time with changing soil conditions
3.  Tree roots just keep growing and growing
4.  Too much debris flushed down the toilet
5.  Grease gets repeatedly poured down the drain

Maybe you thought those sewer lines were indestructible, but they definitely are NOT!  Sewer line repair and replacement tasks should always be performed by a certified, professional plumber.  In Snohomish and the greater Seattle area that man and that company is Shawn Allen owner of Allen Plumbing.  Don’t hesitate.  Call (425) 367-4744 today.
