It is generally recommended to have your main drain line inspected by a professional plumber every 2-3 years.
However, the frequency at which you should have your main sewer line augured will depend on several factors. These include the age of the system, the condition of your pipes, and the materials of your pipes. You should also consider the amount of use your pipes receive, and any previous issues you have had with your sewer line.
Have you had frequent clogs or backups in your sewer drain?
Do you have an older Saskatoon home with older pipes? If so, you may need to have your sewer line augured more frequently. Older cast iron drainage can become full of shale and have rough internal walls in the pipe which can add to the potential of a backup. On the other hand, if you have newer pipes (plastic pvc/abs), you may not have as many issues with your drain line. You may be able to go longer between augering.
It is a good idea to have your sewer line inspected by a professional plumber.
Contact a Saskatoon plumber if you are experiencing any issues with your plumbing. Things such as slow drains, frequent clogs, or sewage backups should be addressed sooner than later. This can help to identify any problems early on and prevent more serious issues from developing. Having scheduled plumbing inspections done to your drain lines will help alleviate any headaches that are associated with drain line back-ups. This provides peace of mind that your plumbing system is operating to its full potential.
