How do sewer trucks un-clog and clean sewer mains?
They use high pressure water and a series of different heads to break blockages lost in wastewater mains. These blockages can be caused by roots, grease, and vandalism. Grease comes from people dumping grease down the drain instead of disposing it some other way, like in the trash. Vandalism is when people flush things down the commode or they open a manhole and throw anything form clothes, wood, rocks, old televisions and anything else they can think of.
