We were called by a customer in Norwich CT 06360 who had a problem with a frozen sewer line. If you have a frozen sewer call us at 860-857-1277 or, visit our website at http://allthingsdrain.com. Our high pressure water jetting can easily melt through ice blockages in a sewer line restoring drainage for you.
This job proved to be very interesting and the customer had a sewer line unlike anything I have ever seen before. Take a look at the video and you’ll see why!
Sewer lines drain dry after use and will seldom freeze, however if there is a slow flow of water in the line that is unable to retain enough warmth within it until it reaches the city sewer line or, gets into a line buried below the frost line a sewer can freeze. This is a good reason why toilets with leaking flappers, and dripping faucets should be repaired. Also it shows why the advice to leave a faucet running slowly to avoid freezing isn’t great advice.
We were able to high pressure water jet the ice blockage out of the customers sewer line restoring flow, but we did find an additional problem with their sewer line a short distance before it connects to the city sewer, which will have to be repaired.
