The occasional clogged drain is virtually unavoidable in the lifespan of a home. Drain strainers and careful attention to what goes down the pipes can help prevent many problems, but almost every homeowner will need the help of a plumber at some point. Unblocking drains with clogs that exist deeper in the main system, for example, will likely require the use of special equipment such as augers, drain rods, or water jets.
Sewer problems should always be handled by a professional. Sewer lines can be damaged and blocked by shifting earth or growing tree roots, and in these cases, a plumber will need to perform a sewer inspection using video camera equipment to determine how much damage has been done. If you encounter a sewer line problem, ask your plumber about trenchless sewer repair. Trenchless technology can be used to replace a broken sewer pipe without damaging the yard.
