What is sewer main line flushing?

Sewer flushing is part of our annual maintenance program. 

Here is how the process works and what you can expect: 

  • the equipment uses high pressured water to clean the inside of our sewer mains
  • we vacuum debris from the manhole with a high-powered hose
  • air pressure is created inside the sewer pipe during the cleaning process 
  • afterwards, the air escapes through your house's plumbing vents
  • there may be gurgling and bubbling in the water lying in the trap of a toilet, sink or floor drain, or it may cause some water to splash out of the toilet bowl. 
  • low water in your drain and sinks can be easily fixed by running water into them once work in your area is complete
