Sewers and Drains:

Is There a Difference?

Most people confuse sewers and drains. These words are often used interchangeably. But they are not the same. To put it simply, a drain is a pipe that takes foul water away from your Staten Island property. A sewer is a pipe or a drain that takes foul water from your Staten Island home and into the NYC public system.

Is the problem in the drain or in the sewer?

A good way to find out is to open the inspection chamber. Next, check if the problem is only at your home or is your neighbor also suffering from a blocked drain. But this is not so simple as it looks. The block may be deeper down the pipe than you can see. Some customers also find that their drain keeps clogging up repeatedly and they don't know why. Since the problem is often much deeper in the drain or sewer than can be easily seen drain inspection cameras are a great way to see what causing the block and are invasive to your plumbing system. One of the best ways to get this data is to ask your drain cleaning company about the use of a drain camera.
