Sewer and Condo Drainage Cleaning
Spinnaker Reach had substantial sewer drainage backup problems in the past that damaged several ground floor units and townhomes with flooding issues. The Board and our management company have established a rotating sewer pipe review and clean out of tree roots and debris to help preclude additional problems.
Although annual cleaning is often enough for most households, it’s important to watch for signs of drain blockage and know if you should schedule a plumber visit. For example, if water is draining slowly, or your toilet is not filling with water, you should contact a plumber immediately.
To avoid such inconvenience and mess, please follow these basic preventive measures to avoid possible backups into your units:
- Do not throw hand or diaper wipes down the toilet or anything else that is not biodegradable
- Condo units only: Clean out floor drain pipe opening (in hot water heater closet) with bleach or bleach/water mix periodically to keep drain clear of sludge buildup from stagnant water due to lack of water use. Absentee homeowners should clean drain more often.
