Problems with a sewer line such as a clog or a broken sewer can be a frustrating, and irritating experience for any homeowner. However, thanks to technology, sewer service and repair is no longer as difficult as it used to be. There’s no digging required and both inspection and repair, can be undertaken with the help of video technology.
The cameras are inserted into the sewer pipes and they give an accurate picture of which parts are damaged, whether there are any cracks, or if clogging is the problem.
Repairing a clogged or damaged sewer does not require any kind of excavation to replace the sewage lines. Instead, trench less technology allows all this to be done underground.
In addition to trench less technology, pipe reclining is also a popular way to repair a pipe without replacing it. It involves cleaning a pipe using high-pressure hydro jet, and inserting a new pipe that lines against the old one. This newly laid pipe hardens and prevents the sewer from leakages.
Whether you are looking to get a sewer issue fixed or to arrange a service, there are certain things that you must know beforehand so that you don’t end up spending more than your budget or deal with an inexperienced plumbing service.
When you are looking to get an estimate for sewer servicing, here is the process that you will likely go through with any plumbing service:
The plumbing company will ask you some questions along the following lines:
- Is there any plumbing fixture like a kitchen or laundry basin, floor drain or a bathroom?
- Are any of these fixtures clogged and if so, which ones?
- When you run any fixture, does the water in the pipes overflow?
- Is there any foul smell due to the above?
- When were the drains serviced last?
After these questions, the plumbing company will be able to problem solve to find out if your main sewer is clogged or not and if it is, your request will be considered on an emergency basis and treated accordingly.
Questions To Ask Your Plumbing Company before Getting an Estimate
To ensure that you choose the right plumber for the job, ask the following questions:
- Are you are a registered or licensed plumbing service?
- Will you assign us subcontractors?
- Are the plumbers insured?
- Are the charges fixed or will they increase once you start the job?
- Do you provide a warranty for your service and repairs?
Once you’ve made these inquiries about the plumbing service and are happy with your choice. The plumbers will perform a camera inspection of the sewer to determine the location where the problem is and give you an estimate of the charges for the job.
