Many homeowners neglect their sewer line until it backs up and overflows from the toilet. This is not an exaggeration, and happens when the sewer is getting a lot of use and there is a clog blocking the passage of waste into the city line. The clog can form from tree roots penetrating the line where an opening can be found. You may not have a tree on your property, but tree roots can travel over 100 feet when seeking water.
Problems can be prevented by having a sewer repair in Portland plumbing technician do a mini-cam inspection of your line annually.
