2 important things you need to know.
When you experience a sewer clog that’s causing all of your toilets, sinks, tubs and showers to overflow it’s super helpful to know where your sewer clean outs are located.
A 2 way sewer clean out located where the sewer line exits your home’s foundation is required by code. However, many older homes do not have these or the owner doesn’t know where it’s located. It’s possible one is present but it’s buried below 2′ of dirt or hidden by bushes. We strongly recommend knowing where this clean out is located and if you don’t have one, install one. This clean out makes it possible for plumbers to access your sewer line to remove the clog. If sewer is backing up into your home you can remove the cap, allowing the sewage to flow into your yard instead of flooding your house.
A clean out at your sewer tap, most often located at the front property line, is also required by code. However, many older homes do not have these. They may also be buried or covered over by bushes or even driveways. What’s the most important reason to have a clean out at your sewer tap? To save money. If you remove the cap and your line is clogged at the tap, the local sewer authority will solve the problem for free – so you don’t have to pay a plumber! We highly recommend know where this clean out is located, how to remove the cap and if you don’t one, install one.
Need a new sewer line?
To give you an accurate estimate to replace your sewer line, Hanahan Plumbing Co believes in seeing the entire situation. To do this we use a camera and locator to mark out the entire sewer line from your house to your tap. Many variables can effect a replacement price such as: distance, depth, location and other underground utilities in the immediate area. Sometimes lines go under driveways or huge oak trees. Sometimes a gas line will cross over a sewer line. By not properly marking your line and knowing where all obstacles are you may end up paying much more than the simple per foot price one plumber gives you. At Hanahan Plumbing Co, we believe in pricing the job correctly the first time so there won’t be any surprises once the work begins. Our camera and locator runs $230 to mark out your sewer line, as long as an exterior ground level clean-out is present. We will credit the $230 from the replacement invoice if we replace your sewer line.
We highly recommend having your plumber mark and locate your sewer line if they tell you it’s time to replace it. Marking the line with green paint or green flags will allow you to get multiple accurate estimates for the job.
If your plumber told you that you need a new sewer line and didn’t mark the entire sewer line, call us, a second opinion based on accurate location and interior pipe inspection never hurts. It could actually save you a little money.
