Excavating any sewer line no matter how easy or hard in a pricey ordeal. Starting prices are around $2,500 for a single easy hole. If you have just undergone a major sewer repair make sure you tell your family and friends to get their sewer lines cleaned before an issue arises. Tree-roots aren’t friendly and they need to be cleaned annually.
Client of ours that get sewer lines cleaned annually are better off then the clients that call once every 3 years. Cleaning on a regular basis keeps the line in tact and roots to a control. Roots can quickly grow more then we’d like to see. In a dry season roots can grow in double speed. In years with plenty of water roots grow as well.
Ken’s Sewer Service provides quick and reliable service for both residential and commercial properties.
Our company doesn’t want to see roots like in the above picture in our line. Sewer lines that don’t have roots will have other issues like dipped lines and sag and hold debris and shifted broke sewer tile.
No matter what property you own, having your sewer line cleaned and inspected is the smart way to go.
Help make your plumbing job easier and faster!
Everyone is familiar with the job and duties of a plumber. A plumber is the guy who stops leaks and installs all plumbing fixtures. Plumbers also have the knowledge to unclog any drain. People know that plumbers tend to work in dark, crowded, cluttered, tight areas. It’s not easy fitting in some spaces but we figure out a way to get the job done.
One easy way to make a plumber smile is to make sure the cabinet under your kitchen sink is friendly. Look at the pictures above, the top picture is what plumbers like to see. Plumbing in general under a kitchen sink can be confusing and isn’t always easy to deal with. Next time your going to install a kitchen cabinet for the sink make sure that wood board that runs down the middle isn’t there. Have them install it on one of the doors so when anyone is working under the sink it give them more room. By making this easier and more accessible it will first of all make the job easier and second get the job done faster which means less spend out of your pocket book.
This is the amount of tree roots that was pulled out from one of our clients sewer lines. The growth of these roots only took 2 years. Sewer lines need to be cleaned annually to keep tree roots out of sewer lines. Excavation costs for repairing sewer pipe is at an all-time high.
