Toilets that overflow, shower drains that backup and kitchen drains that empty ever-so-slowly, are all signs there may be an issue with your home’s drain or sewer lines. While you may have tried all the usual home-based methods to unclog your pipes, you just can’t seem to completely get rid of the blockage. At Curt & Jerry Sewer Service, we help homeowners with whatever is ailing their internal plumbing. We have the tools and expertise to know if we should look at the drains first or if the problem lies within the sewer line itself. Keep reading to find out the difference between your home’s drain lines and its main sewer line.

What Is the Difference between Drain Lines & Sewer Lines?

Drain Line Cleaning

Drain lines are located in your home and encompass all the lines that filter water and waste into the main sewer line. Clogged drains are one of the most common plumbing problems in homes throughout Indianapolis. The go-to remedy is often a store-bought solution that is known to unclog the obstruction temporarily. The best way to solve this issue permanently is by hiring a professional drain cleaning service like Curt & Jerry. We have both the tools and expertise to not only permanently get rid of the blockage but also to clean out any buildup that is lining your home’s internal pipes.

Sewer Line Cleaning

The sewer line is the main pipe that leads from your home to either the city sewer system or the septic tank. Various items that do not belong in your home’s pipes can cause major clogs in the sewer line such as coffee grounds, eggshells, grease and oil, paper towels, and more.

Another reason your sewer line may be clogged is growing tree roots. Strong roots can grow right through, under, or over the sewer line, causing leaks, holes, or a large break in the pipe. The only way to take care of tree root intrusion is to hire a professional plumber to perform a sewer camera inspection. With this inspection, we use our high-powered professional tools to effectively clean out and repair the damaged sewer line.
