It takes a lot of gunk and grease to block a main sewer line. In situations like these, it’s important that action is taken immediately to reduce the impact. Water jetting would be a good solution to quickly remove the clog. However, there is still the aftermath of dealing with sanitation and cleanup from the leak.
