Can You Fix Your Own Sewer Line?

Can You Fix Your Own Sewer Line?

  • As a homeowner, it is of great benefit to have an understanding of how to fix common problems that might arise anytime around the house. As time goes on, many homeowners become an all-rounder when it comes to basic household projects, which is good. However, sewer line repair is just not one of those that you put in your own hands. 
  •  
  • Sewer repairs can quickly become complicated when handled by someone with minimal to no experience in plumbing at all. While it may appear like a tempting job, worthy taking on, there are several reasons why you should avoid taking the DIY route when dealing with sewer repair jobs and instead hands this over to the professionals.

Top 5 Reasons that DIY Sewer Repairs Go Sideways

  • While there are a considerable number of reasons at which point DIY Sewer Repair can go sideways, we’ve collated common reasons here that will help you make the right decision when you’ve come face to face with sewer problems.
  • 1. Code Requirements
  • A DIY sewer project may breach your community building and public works regulations. Sewer repair jobs, especially those that require excavation, need a permit before any work begins. Obtaining a permit is not as simple as it seems – securing the clearance or authorization can be a complex and lengthy process and requires an understanding of the ordinances. An experienced plumber is well-educated concerning these rules and ensures that the sewer line repair job is adherent with all local requirements and regulations that apply in your sewer jurisdiction. If your city finds out about your DIY project, you will be penalized for bypassing the rules and will be required to pay to pass inspection. So, bear in mind, fixing failed projects can only cost more than doing it right the first time. 
  •  
  •  2. Further Damage
  • With limited or without the appropriate expertise and experience, a lot of things could go wrong in a simple sewer line repair project, in potentially expensive and undesirable ways. What may start as an easy-to-fix issue can shift into a complex one when incorrectly fixed. Take, for example, a leak in the front yard caused by a blockage; this is a problem that could potentially become a flood situation inside your home, spillage in your community, or into your neighbour’s property. A professional plumber has the expertise to keep a sewer project from going haywire. They also offer a guarantee or warranty as part of their service. Revolution Pipe Relining offers a bullet-proof guarantee that if any issues arise after a sewer line relining project completion, we will be available on time every time to rectify it.
  •  
  •  3. Potential Safety and Health Risk
  • Because moisture and other weather conditions affect the stability of the soil, there are health and safety risks standards that must be considered during sewer repairs – if not followed, this will expose workers or you to injury and health hazard. If your DIY dig hits a natural gas line, inhaling the gas can harm your body, and will expose you or your surroundings to potential fire or explosion damage. Cave-in is another risk associated with DIY sewer repair projects; this is when the ground from the walls around the dig site collapses. If your safety and health are important to you, don’t risk it in a DIY sewer project! Most importantly, don’t wait till you reach a point where you’d have to dig to get your sewer line repaired. Never delay in hiring a Pipe Relining Services company to inspect potential issues in your sewer line.
  •  
  •  4. Lack of Experience, Tools and Equipment
  • When repair projects are handled by someone that lacks proficiency, the most blatant result is a completed job that goes wrong. The same is true for DIY sewer line repair; while it may seem simple to take on, there are many aspects in sewer repairs that require an expert’s hand. Many DIYers have an insufficient understanding of some critical technical details to take into consideration during the repair project, such as underground utility lines and soil conditions, or enough knowledge of the suitable options available for sewer repair. There’s also more to getting the job done than just ingenuity. A project carried out using appropriate equipment and materials achieves a high-quality result. A licensed plumber has good judgement when choosing the suitable materials, has the right tools at their disposal, and is adept in their plumbing weaponry. The expertise of sewer repair professionals like Sewer Relining experts, will no doubt give you confidence that your sewer repair project is done right and done well.
  •   
  • 5. Higher Costs
  • Homeowners often presume massive repair cost savings when they choose a DIY approach. Sewer repair estimates may look expensive, but improperly completed repairs by an unskilled or DIY plumber can only result in huge added cost, which turns your low-cost DIY project into expensive repeat repair. Professional plumbers can precisely identify and fix your issue right off the bat, which will translate into a more minimal repair cost. Another noteworthy aspect, you may forget to take into account is your precious time. Sewer repairs should always be a priority, but plumbers equipped in plumbing will be able to complete the job with 100 % accuracy and efficiency. Skilled plumbers, like sewer relining contractors, helps you reduce the downtime of your sewer line. At Revolution Pipe Relining, we complete all our repair projects in a day’s work.
