Main Sewer Lines in St. Louis
Your home or business drains out into a septic system or the main city or county sewer lines. The main sewer line is the largest pipe in your drainage system, running underground from the house to either the city or county public sewer or the septic tank. When your main line becomes clogged with waste and debris, it stops every drain in your house. It may also damage floors, walls, or even structural supports. The drain pipe can also develop problems because of tree roots and breaks in the drain pipe itself. Here in the Midwest especially St. Louis we have many beautiful & historic trees with massive tree roots, which can cause ground shifts and grow into pipe joints seeking moisture causing pipe breakage, time can cause old pipes to deteriorate as well.
Residential Shower & Tub Drains
Standing water in your tub is one thing, but a sewer line backup in your home is even worse.

We can correct the problem before it gets out of hand or damages your personal property of the home. A flooded tub can cause thousands of dollars in damage to your home.
With regular use, even a kitchen drain can become clogged. Food waste, grease, and soap residue creates gunk, and will eventually cause a clog or back up over time!

Action $75 Drain Cleaning St. Louis can get your kitchen drain free of gunk and crud in no time.

Basements, laundry rooms, garages, patios, driveways, window wells, mud rooms; these are just a few places you might find floor drains any could become clogged. Each drain should have a “U” shaped trap leading from the drain opening. The trap is designed to hold water to prevent odors and gas from coming up through the sewers and drains. However, clogs may form in the trap or further down the drain, resulting in back-ups that cause a mess, and sometimes damage.

Gutters on the roof are designed to carry water to the downspouts, where the water is shifted away from your house via either a drain field, a storm water system, a curb drain, or another water system. To keep water away and avoid potential problems, gutters and downspouts should be kept open and clear.
