Clogged sewer lines can cause drainage problems for you as well as other property owners in the area.
You were planning to go to Sunken Gardens today for the Flamingo Festival. That is, you were planning to go until your bathroom drains backed up.
You weren’t shocked. In fact, you were kind of expecting the back up because you’ve been coping with slow drains everywhere in your home for several weeks now. You figured you had a clog somewhere in the system and you’ve been trying home remedies as well as dumping chemicals and such down all your drains. But nothing seemed to clear the slow drains.
Sounds as if there’s a clogged sewer line. And – depending on where the clog is in the system – you might not be the culprit. Or, the only culprit. If others in your neighborhood are dumping stuff in their drains – whether it’s baby wipes, fat and grease, or a combination of things – the cumulative effect can overwhelm the system. It’s a problem that was noted in a story in the Goshen (NY) News:
“‘People are using the sewer system as an alternative trash can, a very expensive alternative. Grease and food scraps are being sent down the sinks; disposable products, especially baby wipes and public restroom paper towels, are being flushed down the toilet,’ said Robert Villée, a committee chairman for the Water Environment Federation.
“Grease plays a starring role amid the other junk, Hairfield said. ‘When you put grease on top of onion skins, potato skins and all that other stuff, it’s like glue. It sticks to the pipes.'”
Basically, the effect is similar to clogged arteries in humans. Except that it’s clogged sewers and clogged plumbing systems.
