Installing A New Sewer Line For Your Home

Posted on

The sewer line is responsible for transporting the wastewater from your home. Whether you are building a home or needing to install an upgraded sewer line, it is important to be prepared for this major plumbing work.

Consider The Placement Of Large And Important Plants

The location of large and important plants will be something that you need to consider as you are planning for the installation of the new sewer line. The process of installing this sewer line can damage the roots of these plants, which can substantially reduce their growth. In some cases, this damage may be enough to cause the plants to begin to wither and die. As a result of this, you may want to be sure to install the sewer line several meters from these plants to reduce the risk of damaging major parts of the root system.

Appreciate The Benefit Of Trenchless Options

Installing a sewer line does not have to ruin the appearance of your landscaping despite involving excavation. This is due to the option of using trenchless excavation services that will be able to create a tunnel that can accommodate the sewer line while minimizing the need to disturb the surface of the soil. It will be necessary to make a hole that will allow the trenchless excavation system to be lowered into place, but this damage will be much easier to repair than needing to repair a long trench across the property.

Prepare The Area For The Sewer Line Installation Work

There are some steps that you can take to help make the sewer line installation go smoothly. One of these steps can be the removal of any items that may be in the area where the sewer line is going to be installed. For those that are installing the sewer line for a newly built home, this may involve moving construction debris or other materials. However, if you are replacing your sewer line, there may be yard decorations or other items in the area that should be moved. Taking the time to remove these items from the area can save the contractors considerable time with preparing the area. Furthermore, some of these contractors may charge additional fees for this type of preparation work. During the process of getting the initial quote, the contractor will be able to help you understand the path that the sewer line will take so that you can prepare the area before they arrive.
