SEWER CLEANING NOTIFICATION
We will be cleaning sanitary sewers in your area from Monday, April 25, 2022, through Friday, April 30, 2022. Starting about 7AM, it will take most of the day.
Sewer lines can develop air pressure or partial vacuum from the cleaning process. Usually, any excess air pressure or vacuum will dissipate through your plumbing vents, but occasionally there are homes with inadequate plumbing vents (no vents, undersized vents, or obstructed vents).
In the case of inadequate venting air pressure could escape through your toilet, floor, sink, tub, or shower drains causing water to splash out or, a vacuum could draw the water out of your fixture traps causing an unpleasant odor. To guard against this possibility please:
- COVER ALL FLOOR DRAINS WITH PASTIC AND PLACE A WEIGHT ON THE PLASTIC
- COVER ALL TOLIETS WITH PLASTIC AND CLOSE THE LID ON THE PLASTIC
- IF YOU SHOULD EXPERIENCE AN UNPLEASANT ODOR, RUN WATER INTO EACH DRAIN TO RE-FILL THE TRAPS
Water and drains may be used as normal. The Cleaning of sanitary sewer is necessary to help prevent stoppages.
