Many homeowners want to learn as much as they can about their plumbing system. This could lead to expensive repairs. The city will not take care of your sewer even if it is connected to their pipes. It is essential to understand the costs of repairs and what a contractor does. This will save you money, time, and headaches.

Different Sewer Problems

Before scheduling work, it’s important to understand the nature of your sewer problem. Spot repair can only be done in specific circumstances. Most likely, the sewer will need to be replaced completely or partially.

Spot Repairs Are a Good Idea

Tree roots can block sewer lines. A wide range of fittings are available to join to cast iron or clay pipes and create watertight joints.

Digging Laws

Many local laws allow you to dig on any property. Sometimes, a government inspector may be called to inspect your site and make sure that no damage is done to city wires or pipes. Professional contractors can negotiate more efficient ways to do this.
