How can Vortex Sewer save me money?
Before buying a home, a sewer inspection can identify broken or clogged sewer lines. This helps you negotiate a lower price with the seller. It also saves you from paying for costly repairs once you’ve already bought the house.

A yearly maintenance program can help you save money keeping your drains and sewer lines in good working order. This prevents expensive problems from ever happening in the first place.

Can a sewer inspection be performed during my building inspection?
Yes, absolutely! In fact, we recommend you do both at the same time. We regularly work with home inspectors and real estate agents during their home inspections.
What causes blockages?
Household debris, grease, tree roots, hygiene products–all these things can clog drains and pipes. The best way to prevent clogs is to perform yearly sewer maintenance and cleaning.
Is there anything I can do to prevent backups?
The best way to prevent backups is through regular sewer maintenance. But you can reduce pipe damage by being aware of what’s going down your pipes. Never flush wipes, feminine products, or paper towels. Also, avoid throwing grease or oil down your drains.

For bathtubs and sinks, make sure protective screens are in place. This prevents household debris and hair from forming clogs in your pipes. Another good practice is to run hot water down your sink after use.

Do you repair damaged pipes or sewer lines?

No. Vortex performs sewer line cleanings, preventative maintenance, and inspections. We do not repair damaged pipes or sewer systems. As a third-party inspector, we’re here to make sure you have all the facts about the house before you buy it. For all your plumbing needs please click here to visit Cyclone Plumbing USA.
