Why Do Drains Back-Up In Spring?

This time of year tends to be hard on residential sewer lines. There are a number of reasons that spring happens to coincide with messy drain issues, but here are the 3 most common:

  • Snow Melt– As snow melts, all of that dirty water has to go somewhere. It can overwhelm area drains and create debris and dirt build up the results in total blockages. Another issue to be aware of with snow melt is basement flooding – is your sump pump ready to handle all of that water? Call Roy’s for sump pump services today.
  • Tree Roots– Over the winter, tree roots extend in search of fresh moisture and nutrients. They find it in places like your sewer lines, and if they’re allowed to spread and become tangled, they cause blockages and even disjointing. The main problem with having tree roots in your drain lines is that common measures like drain snaking and rootering won’t have any effect – the only way to really clear away tree roots is using high water pressure jetting.

  • Frozen Pipes– The frozen substances in your pipes have thawed out now, meaning they’re back to causing the same problems they once were.
