During the cold winter months and into spring as the temperatures fluctuate, we here at All Ways Drains are often called to help clear ice that has accumulated in or near sewers and to fix frozen sewers.

So we thought we would offer some insight on what to look out for, how we help fix this problem and some sewer repair solutions we can offer.
After the snow begins to melt but the ground near the drains is still cold enough to freeze, it is important to call in the sewer repair experts. Ice can can cause sewers to freeze, pipes to freeze and sewer lines to back up. This can lead to flooding and other sewer issues. A frozen sewer line, or a sewer trap is not typically a common occurrence. But when it does occur, it can close down a drain system and cause a major inconvenience. We all know that when water freezes, it expands in volume. When water freezes in the pipe, it expands and either causes damage to your plumbing system, or a stoppage.
So how can you avoid this issue in the future and avoid a call to a sewer repair professional like us?
