Why Is Sewer Cleaning Important?

Sewers collect various types of wastewater from laterals that are connected to homes, industrial buildings, and offices. Sewer cleaning removes built-up debris and obstructions from a sewer system. Debris and obstructions that can block sewer systems include:

  • Grease.
  • Grit.
  • Leaves.
  • Plastic bags.
  • Rags.
  • Sand.
  • Tree roots.

Obstructions such as those listed aboveĀ can prevent optimal flow conditions in pipes. Obstructions must be removed from sewer lines to keep the lines in working condition so that they can efficiently remove wastewater. Over time, improper flow can create an array of problems, including:

  • Backups.
  • Corrosion.
  • Overflows.
  • Severely clogged pipes.
  • Unpleasant odors.

Systematic sewer cleaning is thus essential to make sure the collection system works properly. Sewer cleaning can minimize the chance of overflows and backups. Flush tanks, fire hoses, and other tools can also carry out flushing operations. Flushing operations involve a sudden, high-velocity flow of water.

Sewer Cleaning Methods

Hydraulic Cleaning

Hydraulic cleaning involves insertingĀ a nozzle into the access point when a sewer blockage is discovered. Releasing water at high pressure, this method pushes the blockage into the main sewer system.

Blockages sometimes also include debris such as gravel, sand, and roots that get pushed into sewer systems via storm drains when bad weather conditions occur. When this happens, vacuum trucks can suck up dirt and debris, then dispose of the dirt and debris in a landfill.

Flush tanks, fire hoses, and other tools can also carry out flushing operations. Flushing operations involve a sudden, high-velocity flow of water.

Mechanical Cleaning

The mechanical sewer cleaning method cuts, scrapes, pulls, or pushes debris out of a pipe using tools such as:

Mechanical cleaning can shred large blocks of debris and cut roots. After mechanical cleaning, a follow-up of hydraulic cleaning is usually necessary because mechanical methods are better at clearing blockages than actually cleaning.

Chemical Methods

Chemical methods must use only chemicals the local government approves. Chemicals can be used to:

  • Control root growth.
  • Cut through grease.
  • Eliminate insects and rodents.
  • Remove odors.
