According to the Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety, more than 50 percent of drain system failures are due to sewer backups. The typical cost with sewer drain overflows or corroded drain pipes and loose connections is $4,400.

How to Prevent a Sewer Line Backup
- Be certain you are disposing of garbage the right way.
- Pouring grease down your drain will cause a blockage in the line and lead to a clog.
- Disposing of any paper materials except toilet paper (including feminine products and paper towels) into the toilet can cause a backup.
- Have Eveready Service Experts install and maintain a backwater prevention valve to prevent sewer backflows.
- Ask Eveready Service Experts to look for illegal plumbing connections and fix them if found. It is illegal to connect French drains, sump pumps and other flood-control systems to your sanitary sewer. Not only that, but it will eventually clog your line with debris and silt.
- To prevent tree roots from damaging your lines, have your line and tap replaced with plastic pipe.
