Sewer repair is a messy business and can be very dangerous. Let’s see why.
Sewer Repair Requires Special Licenses and Expertise
Sewer line and water line construction and repair are complicated jobs that not just any contractor can undertake. First of all, to work on sewers connected to the local water table, you must carry specific licenses, permits, and insurance. This is because untrained or illegal repair operations are prone to causing further damage or accidental exposure of chemicals into the water table.
Because any chemicals used will inevitably find their way through the ground and back to the local water table, working with sewer lines is highly specialized work. Consider dangers like exposed electrical lines and sewage which can all be connected to the systems as well. Damaging a water line is a problem, but damaging a sewage line on your home property can be downright disastrous.
Sewers are Important but Gross
Let’s face it, sewer lines are an essential part of the infrastructure on every level from the home up to public transit. Sewers bring water for drinking, cooking, showering, and cleaning; while also taking away dirty water, oils, chemicals, sewage, and more. Conducting repairs or updates to any sewer line is dangerous and can be filthy.
Outdated Sewers Will Break Down
Older sewer systems are prone to be weathered and damaged over time. Every year the level of water and sewage they carry increases and this means wear and tear over time. Modern sewer systems are built to last far longer than those made before 2000. This is because the materials used to create high-volume sewers today are far superior and long-lasting than those of a few decades ago.
Fixes are Temporary and Short-Lived
Getting your sewer repaired regularly has multiple drawbacks.
- It is a temporary solution to an underlying problem
- Very expensive year after year
