Many homeowners have no idea what they should be doing when it comes to their sewer line. They aren’t sure about inspections needed, how often repairs might be necessary, or even what options they have if something needs to be replaced. This is simply unsafe and can be very costly for a homeowner. Check out our basic guide on sewer systems to help you out!

Sewer Line Inspections

Inspections are a vital piece in making sure that your sewer system is working properly and efficiently. A simple inspection can help find any issues before they become big repairs. They allow you to do preventative work on your system rather than simply reacting to issues. In addition, because you’re doing preventative work, you will likely lengthen the lifetime of your system, which saves you money down the road!

Sewer Line Repairs

Sewer replacement can be incredibly expensive, and for those not anticipating that expense, it can be nearly impossible to get done. By keeping up with consistent but small sewer line repairs, you will lengthen the life of your system and avoid costly, huge repairs or replacements. Sewer line cleaning is also a great way to lengthen the life of a system.

Trenchless Plumbing Repair

An Angie’s List poll showed that 78% of homeowners had no idea that “no dig” sewer technology existed. After learning that the method costs 30% to 50% more, 73% of respondents said they would pay the extra. This is because this method allows you to keep outdoor features such as landscaping, patios, decks, and more. In the end, this makes trenchless options more cost effective, since homeowners will save thousands not needing that restorative work done.
