The Dangers of Playing in Sewers

The Dangers of Playing in Sewers

The Dangers of Playing in the Sewers – Don’t Mess Around, Call a Professional A recent news story from Federal Way, Washington showed that some children were believed to be living down in the sewers. Other versions of the story had the kids playing down there rather than being homeless kids taking refuge there. Either way, it should be known that sewers can be dangerous for anyone – children or adults – and no one should go down into the sewers unless they’re a skilled professional or public utility worker. Contact Complete Trenchless today for help with sewer problems. Manhole covers left ajar alerted utility workers Meter readers in the Lakehaven district noticed a manhole cover was repeatedly left open despite that utility workers closed it again and again.

7 Tips to Prevent Clogged Pipes

With Holidays Around the Corner, Don’t Clog Your Pipes with Grease and Gunk The holidays are the perfect time to enjoy family, friends and lots of food. Whether it’s a family get-together or big holiday blowout, Thanksgiving and the winter holidays bring good times but can also bring drain clogs. We see lots of drain problems, clogs, and backups this time of year. Trust Complete Trenchless to get your pipes back in shape. Beware grease and other clog-worthy foods as you get ready for the holidays. #1 Grease is a clog creator Pouring grease down your drain is a clog waiting to happen. Fat, oil and grease from your turkey or other foods will settle in your pipes and when it cools down, it becomes nearly solid. It’s like shoving clumps of Crisco down your pipes. Grease in the pipes can also wreck your disposal. Don’t put it down your sink! #2 Watch out…

What Is a Side Sewer and Why Is It So Important to Your Home?

What Is a Side Sewer and Why Is It So Important to Your Home?

What you need to know about your side sewer A side sewer connects your house to the sewer line that runs along your street. This line is critical because while the sewer line in the street is the responsibility of the local sewer utility, your side sewer line is your responsibility because it’s fully on your property. If you have a problem with your side sewer in the greater Seattle area including Tacoma and Bellingham, Complete Trenchless can help. What’s also critical to know is that your side sewer may be just as old as your home – and may have never been replaced. If you live in one of the great vintage homes in Ballard or any other niche neighborhoods in Seattle, your side sewer may be a ticking time bomb. Here’s what you need to know about your side sewer to prevent a plumbing disaster. Side sewer materials vary widely…

Seattle Area Water Main Blowout

Seattle Area Water Main Blowout

Is Your Water Main Due for a Blow Out? Seattle’s Aging Pipes Going Bad Fast America’s water delivery infrastructure has aged to the point of near collapse. Across the US, at least 240,000 water mains go bad every year according to a recent EPA study. Water mains at the street are the problem of the city – but water lines that run from the street to your home are your responsibility as are all the pipes and fittings in your yard and home. The older your home, the more likely you will have a major water line blow out on your property. We wrote recently about warning signs of water line problems and these should not be ignored. You should also know that the older your home, the more likely your water line will go bad unless it has been replaced since the original pipes were installed. Pipe materials matter Most pipe materials will…
