Your Local Plumbers Proudly Serving Bergen, Passaic, Mercer, Middlesex, Camden, Burlington, Gloucester, Atlantic, and Monmouth Counties
All of the drain lines in your New Jersey home connect to the main sewer line. This carries all the wastewater from your home to the municipal sewer system or, in rural areas, your septic system. If that main sewer line clogs, it can cause all of the drains in your home to stop functioning. Not only can this result in a huge mess and property damage, but it can also be quite hazardous to your health.
When you have a clog in your main sewer line, turn to our experts at Len The Plumber for fast, reliable help, seven days a week. We offer main line clog removal in Bergen, Passaic, Mercer, Middlesex, Camden, Burlington, Gloucester, and Monmouth Counties.

What Causes Main Line Clogs?
Anything that slows down the flow of water can cause your main sewer line to clog over time. This can include:
- An accumulation of waste – Cooking grease, fat, hair, soap, food particles, toilet paper, and other everyday waste can accumulate in vulnerable spots like elbows or pipe reducers where flow is restricted, causing clogs over time.
- Poorly sloped pipes – If the sewer pipe is not sloped enough or there is a belly in the pipe, waste will accumulate and clog the line.
- Damaged pipes – Pipes that are crushed, cracked, or misaligned can cause debris to accumulate. This can happen due to poor installation, shifting soils, defective pipe materials, excessive weight, or simply advanced age.
- Foreign objects – Toys, jewelry, hygiene products, or baby wipes can lodge in the main sewer line, stopping wastewater flow.
- Tree root infiltration – Tree roots can find their way into the smallest cracks or defects of a sewer pipe in search of nutrients and water, and as they grow inside the pipe, they will completely cut off the flow.
