Fall Sewer Maintenance Tips

Believe it or not, the fall, winter and spring months can overwork your sewer system. Trees get most of their nourishment from their leaves. During the spring and summer months, as the leaves start to turn and fall from the trees, a tree seeks out new forms of nourishment. The roots begin to grow and seek out sources of moisture. The sewer line running from your house to the city sewers in the street is a non-stop source of moisture that tree roots are drawn to.

More Fall Tips:

  • Inspect and clean sump pump and pit. Pumps exposed to extreme cold can freeze, preventing the pump from operating.
  • Be sure to clean the gutters, downspouts, window wells and yard drains. Compacted leaves hold water, invite bugs, slow the flow of water away from your home and can plug up your sewer and drain lines and flood basements. You want to ensure easy drainage when water freezes and thaws throughout the winter season.
  • If your gutter flows through your garage, ensure that there are no leaky spots that accumulate water. Once water begins to freeze in the winter, it will begin to expand – causing more damage. Even worse, standing water can create a very dangerous slipping hazard in your garage!
