Excavation on Sewer Lines

The number one question our company gets when pulling tree roots out of sewer system is “are we gonna have to excavate?”

There are several steps to perform before any digging in required. Never let any company talk you into digging before taking the proper steps. Make sure you do you own due diligence. Understanding how far the sewer company made it through your sewer line is question number one. Ask them how many feet they have gotten and what size cutter/blade they used. If the drain technician says tree roots are coming back on his cutter then give him a couple hours before your resort to digging.

Step 2: call the city you live in and see where your sewer line runs and where your sewer line taps into the main city. Have the city check their sewer line to make sure the flow is nice and that it’s not a city issue.

If you have drainage have the plumbing company camera inspect your sewer line. Scoping your sewer line with a camera is worth a million dollars. But, if there is water in your sewer line the camera won’t see through 100%. Make sure you get a second opinion before ever digging. Having a different technician from the same company or hiring another company to see what they find. Always hire someone you trust. Get referrals from family members or friends.

Most companies that excavate make their money on digging repairs. Don’t dig until your 100% sure digging is the last resort. Don’t let a company convince you to replace your entire sewer line either. Most the time all you need is a ONE SPOT repair, sometimes two. Once the plumbing company repairs their one spot repair have them camera the rest of your sewer line. At that time you can discuss if you can continue cleaning the rest of your sewer line or if you need to continue excavation.

Our company suggests after having a repair made hiring a drain cleaning company to run their machines with cutters through your line. After having any repair done set yourself up for an annual drain cleaning to prevent excavation costs in the future.

leaking appliances

If your washing machine, dishwasher, garbage disposal or any other appliance
appears to have sprung a leak you must get it repaired ASAP. Sometimes a partially-clogged drain can cause an overflow within the appliance. If the drain is
clear, consult the appropriate appliance repair person. When replacing an appliance like a water soften or garbage disposal sometimes the cost of the repair is more then replacing the entire unit. Be smart when it comes to spending money. Call Ken’s Sewer Service a company that has been around since 1974. We pride each and every one of our clients.
