Protecting Your Sewer Line Clean Out Can Prevent Clogs

Plumbing emergencies can be a big stressor, and if you are like most people, the last thing you need is another problem to add to your already full life. In order to avoid issues, there are some preventative measures that you can take to ensure that your sewer line clean out remains clog-free. At Ben Franklin, we want our clients to call us when they need help, but also to be able to prevent costly repairs that can occur when their sewer system is not adequately maintained. Here is some information that can help make sure your sewer lines are protected at all times.


Your sewer line clean out is probably located near your foundation somewhere around the perimeter of your home. It is used by plumbers for easy access to your sewer system. Typically, these clean outs are capped so that debris cannot fall into the pipe and cause clogs, but occasionally the caps come off. Checking periodically to make sure the cap is in place can keep the clean out free from items that could create a blockage. Avoiding planting trees and bushes near clean outs is necessary to prevent roots from penetrating the pipe as well.
