Gross! Roots pulled out of my house sewer line this week.
Here's another reminder to get your sewer rodded by a good sewer/ plumbing company every year. We don't have a sump pump or drain tile. However, we have a relatively shallow full basement and great "water management" around the house keeping it dry. Our clean sewer lines prevent back-ups during heavy rain. Your technician can make quick checks for any other red flags as well.
Neighbors need a good sewer contractor? Call me, we gotta guy!
