Sewer Line Cleaning
Why does HCWA clean sewer lines?
- Fats, oils and grease can accumulate and solidify on the ceilings and walls of the pipe causing restriction of flow in the pipe. This can cause sewage backups in your homes and in HCWA sewer manholes.
- Using high-pressure water nozzles, HCWA cleans sewer mains on a regular basis to help prevent any sewer back-ups or overflows.
- Signs will be placed in front of all entrances to your subdivision to provide at least 24-hour notice that the sewer lines in your neighborhood are scheduled for cleaning.
- Because a high-pressure cleaning system is used in the pipes to complete this work, water can be displaced out of your toilets during the process. HCWA recommends closing your toilets seats to prevent this from happening in your bathrooms.
