Just like the purpose of the reservoir damn to supply the water that each household needs through an effective inflow and outflow of water through major ducts and water lines, each household should also ensure that water runs smoothly from the source to its destination. Clogs can occur in the main lines or secondary lines of the house. Tree roots are main culprits considering that the topography of the area is ruled by mature and high trees. These roots drill its way in the underground ducts causing a degree of damage. The cracks invite sand, sediments and deposits causing an obstruction in the flow of water especially in older homes. New dwellings’ sources of clog drains include long strands of hair buildup in bathroom drains.
