We Can Help You Prevent Sewer Backups in Hillsborough

Sewer backups are an expensive mess. Damage and restoration can be expensive—on average, about $4,400.

Fras-Air/General Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can help you keep clear of that by making sure you have a backflow assembly. This shields against backups.

Many homeowners may not be aware they’re liable for maintaining and repairing the sewer lateral. This is the pipeline between the Hillsborough sanitary sewer main and your residence.

At Fras-Air/General Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, our plumbers and technicians have the expertise, certification and ability to take care of everything connected with sewer service and sewer inspection.

No matter what’s making your sewer overflow or become congested, make sure to call us as soon as you find an issue. Taking care of it before it gets out of control can help you avoid pricey destruction to your basement.

Common Causes of Sewer Backup

Obstructions in the city’s sanitary sewer main can lead to your sewer backing up. Tree roots can also cause problems if they grow into your lines.

There are a couple you can do to avoid a backup.

  • Throw away waste the right way.
  • Don’t dump grease down your drain.
  • Don’t flush paper towels, wet wipes or feminine products.
  • Have Fras-Air/General Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning add a backwater prevention valve to halt sewer backflows.
  • Have us check for and correct incorrect plumbing connections, like French drains, sump pumps or other flood control systems. These connections can block your lines with debris and silt.
  • Replace your line and tap with plastic pipe to prevent tree roots from damaging your lines.
