Downspout Drain Cleaning Services Tips
Here are some professional tips to keep your downspouts clean year-round. First, commit to checking your gutters and downspouts once a month. Also, when the winds pick up, take a moment to check. If any debris is in the gutter, clear it away promptly. Most gunk is removable by hand. However, if you’re squeamish about doing this, use a high-powered garden hose to remove the debris. Some people even use a hand-held plumbing drain snake (like the kind used for removing toilet clogs and sink clogs). While plumbing snakes are helpful, NEVER use a power snake. These tools can damage plastic gutters and downspouts, leaving you with a whole other problem.

Outdoor faucet repair
Don’t let outdoor faucet repair go unnoticed. Things like leaky hose bibs and poor connections lead to slow flooding, which leads to erosion and basement moisture problems. When the ground is already saturated, it doesn’t allow any room for excess water from rainstorms or other situations. Where is all this water going to go? That’s right – in your basement. Call Wise Choice Plumbing & Rooter right away to fix outdoor faucets to prevent basement flooding or other foundation damage.
Don’t let septic system issues build. If you’re experiencing problems, call Wise Choice Plumbing & Rooter for complete inspection services. We recommend that septic system owners have the system pumped once every 2-3 years. Pumping ensures that there is always enough room for waste to collect without overflowing. It also keeps the system running well without major problems for years to come.
It’s natural for people to forget about their outdoor plumbing components. Yet, neglecting these components of your plumbing system can lead to catastrophic results.
