If you suspect your sewer line is damaged, don’t wait for the problem to worsen. Call J. Blanton in Chicago right away to resolve your main sewer line problem as quickly and safely as possible.

Sewer Rodding: What Is It?2022-11-08T17:25:41+00:00

Your plumbing system may experience serious issues if the sewage lines in your Chicago house get clogged. It may result in backed-up wastewater or slow drains.

A plumber from J. Blanton will perform a sewage rodding service to unclog the obstruction and have the sewer lines flowing freely. Sewer rodding is occasionally the sole method for removing some difficult clogs.

If sewer rodding does not improve your water flow, it will be time to request sewer drain repair.

Not Sure what a sump pump does?2022-11-08T17:25:20+00:00

A device for draining water, a sump pump, is located at the lowest point of your house. It is designed to drain any emergency flooding water from your house to prevent water damage.

In both home and business settings, sump pumps are used to prevent floods and water buildup on your property. Even if your basement is not prone to flooding, a sump pump may be useful if there is too much moisture near the foundation of your house.

Call J. Blanton if you’re considering installing, replacing, or repairing a sump pump!
