Preventive Maintenance
A preventive maintenance program can help you avoid a sanitary sewer system back-up or overflow. Frequently, such sewer problems are the result of materials such as fats, oils and grease being deposited into the sewer system. Being lighter than water, such materials tend to accumulate at the top and sides of sewer pipes and can build up until a blockage occurs. Often, the end result is property and/or environmental damage.

Be a smart system user by following these helpful hints.

These simple steps will help the environment and save money.
