How can we prevent a sewer backup in our home?

You can avoid a backup by NOT putting any fats, oils, or grease down the drain and ensure that no objects other than toilet paper and human waste are being flushed down toilets. You might also want to contact a plumber to assess your pipeline and drains. Plumbers can install backflow prevention devices, clean out existing pipes, and video your sewage pipeline all the way to where it connects to the District’s main sewage pipeline.
