Drain and Sewer Services in Spring, TX by Milton Frank Plumbing & Cooling
Your plumbing system is long and complex, but when you break it down to very simple terms, there are two sides to the system: the supply side, which brings in your potable water, and the return side, which is the side that removes and expels the wastewater. The return-side plumbing all leads to one major pipe: your sewer or septic line. And the way the vast majority of wastewater gets to these lines is via your drains. When there are problems with either your drains or your sewer line, you will have issues draining the wastewater from your home. The good news is that the plumbing experts from Milton Frank Plumbing & Cooling are on hand 24/7 to help you with all of your drain and sewer needs, including installation, repair, replacement and annual maintenance.

Why Do My Drains Need Maintenance?
Drain maintenance means a couple of things: first, it means that as the homeowner, you make sure you don’t put things down your drains that can cause clogs. Materials that can easily clog drains are fats, oils and grease (FOG), large food particles, and flushing items down your toilet that don’t belong there. A second aspect of drain maintenance is scheduling your plumbing system for annual maintenance with a Milton Frank Plumbing & Cooling expert. Why are both kinds of maintenance important? Because they keep your drains in good working order, efficient and reliable.
How Does a Sewer Line Get Clogged?
Your sewer line is a pretty rugged line, but it isn’t made to handle everything; simply put, it’s made to handle wastewater and sewage. Here are the most common ways a sewer line can become clogged:
- Tree roots – it may be icky to think about, but your sewer line can be a water source for trees. Tree roots are surprisingly strong, and they can and will infiltrate your sewer pipe to get at the water inside.
- Mud – dirt should not be inside your pipes, but can get there from small cracks. Mud does not wash away like other kinds of sediment, and in fact will create a clog if there’s enough of it.
- Inappropriate items – as mentioned above, toilets and drains can be used to flush down items that should not be in your plumbing system. Items like candy wrappers, paper and small plastic items should never be sent into your plumbing system.
- FOG – fats, oils and grease congeal in your pipes; running hot water only pushes the FOG further because all it does is melt FOG, it doesn’t remove it.
