Why You Need Preventative Maintenance for Your Drains in Chester County


Long-Term and Short-Term Maintenance Can Help Prevent Clogs

Surely you hate those plumbing nightmares we call clogs. And, surely, if there was a way to prevent them, you’d do it, right?

Well, get ready because there is a way – a very simple one – that you can avoid having them in your home altogether. And the way to do that is by signing up for Feehan Plumbing & Heating preventative maintenance.

Preventative maintenance entails the frequent cabling of your pipeline to stop serious clogs or backups from getting into your house. The amount of times we come to your home to do this maintenance would depend on your pipes’ past conditions. It will also differ from line to line because some drains get clogged more than others.

However, if you reach the point where you schedule preventative maintenance more than two times a year, it may be time for our cleaning to be taken one step further. At that point, we would attach one of our drain cameras to the cable so we can determine the severity of the problem and suggest a more long-term solution than just cabling.

Factors to Consider When Deciding on Long-Term Drain Cleaning

  1. How much longer do you plan on living in the home? You can use that number to factor in maintenance vs. repair costs.
  2. If you plan on selling in the near future, how much value will you stand to gain by fixing the problematic sewer?
  3. What is the nature of the drain backups? If they are so backed up that the lines have a constant overflow or flood risk, then a longer, better drain cleaning solution is what you need.

Whether you need short-term or long-term drain cleaning, Feehan Plumbing & Heating has all the tools, experience, and know-how to get the job done. Call us today!
