Getting the Lead Out

Recently, you may have received a letter from the Madison Water Utility explaining how they will remove the lead pipe from the water main to the curb stop in your terrace during the coming weeks to upgrade your water service. While the street and terrace are still open, you can save a lot of money by upgrading the water service from the curb stop to your home at the same time. Get rid of the lead for your family’s sake! Call H.J. Pertzborn at 608-256-3900.

Services for Your Sewer

We recommend having your sanitary sewer line cleaned annually to help prevent unwanted back-ups in your basement. If your sanitary sewer line backs up more often than once a year we recommend videotaping the line. This tells tell us if any breaks, cracks, or separations exist in the line. If you do have a problem, we offer emergency underground water and sewer pipe repair services.

Keeping Your Sewer Lines Clear

Did you know tree roots grow more during the winter months? And that these tree roots will seek out the joints of your sanitary sewer in their quest to find moisture – eventually clogging the pipe. To help prevent this problem, avoid planting trees and shrubs over your sanitary sewer lines.

Other helpful hints for keeping the lines clear:

  • Don’t flush baby wipes or sanitary items down the toilet.
  • Never overfill your garbage disposal with food waste.
  • Don’t put large amounts of paint, wallpaper glue, or drywall mud down your drains.
  • Install lint traps in the sinks where your washing machine discharges. It’s easier to clean a lint trap than a drain line.
