There may come a time when your property’s sewer pipe springs a leak. Once you notice the signs of a leak on your property, be sure to contact C. Lee Services right away. After a thorough inspection, we will be able to determine whether you need a full replacement or a sewer line repair in Cuyahoga Falls, OH. Here are a few tips to prepare for sewer line repair.
To make sewer repair services as efficient as possible, you’ll first need to clear the area of any obstructions. This includes vehicles, children’s toys, and outdoor furniture. The repair team will need space to work. Remember, it’s always a good idea to remove extra stuff at least a day in advance.
Prepare to Do a Little Re-Landscaping
Sewer pipe line repair is not nearly as invasive as complete pipe replacement. Nevertheless, a minimum amount of digging is required. This means you may have to do a little re-landscaping after the job is complete. It usually doesn’t take much to restore your yard’s appearance. In many instances, homeowners only need to plant grass seeds and clean up leftover debris.
Expect to Be Without Running Water
When getting sewer line replacement, your household will be without running water. The time it takes to finish repairing a pipe can vary. While some jobs can be finished within a few hours, others may take two or three days. If this is an inconvenience, you may need to stay with a family member or book a hotel until everything is complete.
Consider Removing Trees
If there are any trees near your sewer line, a plumber may suggest having them removed to prevent future issues. Tree roots are attracted to the moisture inside your pipes, which can lead to leaks and blockages later on. Plus, having large trees where the damaged area is can make it hard for our technicians to repair the issue.
