Sewer Line Replacement
The key to simple sewer line replacement is to address the problem right away, as soon as there are signs of trouble. The longer sewer line issues are ignored, the larger problems become and the more complex the replacement will be. Early detection is vital but you’ll need to know what the warning signs are.
Once a sewer line breaks, sewage can start seeping out. For example, a broken sewer line will lead to puddles or damp spots showing up in your yard, without explanation. You may also notice a sewage smell around the premises, and flies may start to gather.
If you notice one or more of these issues around your home, call us immediately. It may mean you have a broken sewer line that needs to be replaced and that’s the type of situation that needs to be addressed right away. The problem won’t go away on its own, so that smell and those flies will continue to linger around your house until you get the line replaced.
Main Water Line Replacement
A number of things can cause a broken water line but tree root growth is among the most common. As trees or hearty shrubs age and grow upward, their roots grow downward and sideways as well. If one of these roots butts up against your main water line, it may only be a matter of time before the root punctures the line.
Another potential cause is improper installation of the water line to begin with, resulting in a line that is not as sturdy as it should be and is prone to breaking more easily than one that has been properly installed. Water lines should always be replaced by a professional to avoid hitting underground utility lines and causing major damages. Camera technology also allows us to get a close view inside the entire length of the line to locate the cause of the problem so that we can prevent future issues.
