   Tips for Preventing a Sewer Backup

  • Never pour fats, oils, celery or coffee grounds down the drain, even if you have a garbage disposal
  • Avoid putting so-called flushable bathroom wipes in the toilet
  • Never flush disposable diapers or hygiene products down the toilet
  • Use a hair catcher in showers and bathtubs
  • Never hook up gutters or downspouts to sanitary sewers
  • Have your sewer line cleared every 3–5 years to remove clogs and build-up
  • Have your sewer line inspected every 6–10 years to check for cracks and wear
  • Install floating backflow drain plugs in open floor drains
  • If you have had several sewage backups before, you may want to install either a backwater valve or an overhead sewer system.
