Drain is clogged. Why?
Over a period of time deposits such as grease, fat, silt and mineral scale build up on the pipe walls.
This accumulated material makes the wall rough reducing the ability of the drain to rapidly move the water it contains. As the water flow slows more materials are deposited worsening the situation.
The most effective way to clear the drainage pipes and inspection chambers of these deposits is high pressure water jetting.
French Drains for Soggy Lawns
If your neighbor's land stands at a higher elevation than yours, you may be experiencing problems with excessive moisture on your property. Water from your neighbor's property may be running down the slope and spilling onto your property. You need better yard drainage.
One option in such cases is installing French drains.
"Our property is located in a very wet area. Each spring the lawn was soggy, full of water. By putting in a system of french drains, the lawn dries out about a few weeks before our neighbours' properties do. Thanks AnTa Plumbing." Chris M.
Drain system basics
There are two important subsystems involved with plumbing: drain waste and vent piping (DWV). The distribution piping is the system that brought the water to the toilet bowl or kitchen sink, or garden hose. The drain waste-vent system transports all the used water and waste from the house to the sewer or septic system. A house's sewer system basically works on gravity. No mechanical pressure is involved.
When the waste water leaves the bowl, kitchen sink, vanity it descends down the drain and enters the waste line (sewer).
Maintenance of this system is very simple: don't put grease down to your drain, keep clean kitchen drain, once in a few years check with CCTV your sewer.

A blocked drainage pipe often becomes a costly and destructive problems for building owners. Partially blocked pipes result in the slow draining if fixtures and inefficient operation of water closets, while totally blocked pipes cause sewage back-up.
To allow the insertion of cleaning apparatus into drainage piping so that any blockages or obstructions may be readily cleared clean outs need to be installed by Plumbing code in your lines.
The Building Trap
In many older localities where sanitary and storm drainage are combined within a building and then connected to a street sewer, and to a lesser extent in new localities with separate storm and sanitary sewers, a device known as a building trap is installed in the drain.
Today this trap is generally omitted, but many still exist, predominantly in older areas. Purpose is to prevent the passage of gases or vermin from the public sewers into the building drainage system.
