We Can Help You Prevent Sewer Backups in Louisville

Sewer backups are an expensive mess. Damage and restoration can be pricey—on average, about $4,400.

Becht/Givens Service Experts can help you keep clear of that by validating you have a backflow assembly. This acts as a safeguard against backups.

Many homeowners may not realize they’re responsible for maintaining and repairing the sewer lateral. This is the pipeline that links the Louisville sanitary sewer main and your residence.

At Becht/Givens Service Experts, our plumbers and technicians have the skills, training and ability to handle everything connected with sewer service and sewer inspection.

No matter what’s making your sewer fail or become blocked, make sure to contact us as soon as you notice a problem. Stopping it before it gets out of control can help you avoid pricey destruction to your basement.

Common Causes of Sewer Backup

Obstructions in the city’s sanitary sewer main can lead to your sewer backing up. Tree roots can also lead to problems if they expand into your lines.

There are several you can do to avoid a backup.

  • Get rid of waste correctly.
  • Don’t dispose of grease down your drain.
  • Don’t flush paper towels, wet wipes or feminine goods.
  • Have Becht/Givens Service Experts install a backwater prevention valve to halt sewer backflows.
  • Have us seek out and fix illegal plumbing connections, like French drains, sump pumps or other flood control systems. These connections can clog your lines with debris and silt.
  • Replace your line and tap with plastic pipe to curb tree roots from damaging your lines.
