DEP oil spill

Northeast Sewer & Drain Service has a great working relationship with the Maine Department of Environmental Protection (DEP for short) We were called to a home in Arundle Maine for a residential oil spill. When we arrived on sight, it seems that someone had cut the oil lines to the tank and drained them into the positive hole in the basement. Someone noticed it draining into a large wet land area.... DEP was called and they contained the spill, Northeast Sewer & Drain service was called to high pressure jet the positive drain lines for any residual oil. All the oil was...

Broken or clogged sewer line symptoms..

Sometimes when your sewer line breaks you don't notice it for sometime, while others will back up immediately...Either way there are tell tale signs that your sewer has backed-up or is broken. First is there bubbling in the toilet?...And sometimes It really bubbles.  This picture is a simulation it really doesn't foam, it's more like a gurgle Second, the toilet, sink or tub will drain very slowly.

Drain cleaning in Maine

This is busy time of year for Northeast Sewer & Drain in Southern Maine.  Frost is about to set in, camp water lines need to be jetted, septic tanks need to be inspected and any exterior drains that were running slow need to be jetted out before it snows (roots love spring run off). So the phone is ringing off the hook to get these things all done. We were in Millinocket today with our remote Rovver camera televising drainage lines for the old dump. We will be posting video of that here, and on our YouTube channel...Interesting finds I'm sure. Also, root removal for University of Southern Maine Gorham...

Whats in your drains?

Recently we were called for a service call at a kids camp in Southern Maine. Their drains were running extremely slow and had been for the last year or two and they didn't know quite what was going on? So we televised the line and found out what was restricting the flow. Roots! The Camp had some beautiful old growth trees on the property many of which were on the pipe line leading to the outlet. Once we started to jet, the water flow from the pipe almost knocked our employee off his feet!  The pipe ran for 24 hours...
