Sewage Roots

Most sewer lines need to be professional cleaned yearly, some more often. Depending on the condition of your sewer line will dictate how often your sewage systems needs cleaning.

Main sewer lines weather they’re made from cast iron, clay, oranegburg, or PVC all have tree roots that grow inside them. Sewer lines carry one thing that roots like and that’s water. Tree roots need water to grow and no matter what, they will find their way inside your sewer line to reach the water the need. Once roots get inside and crack or break your sewer line they need to be cleaned and maintained until excavation is needed. If properly cleaned and kept up with, excavation may be postponed for a long time.

The Key Toilet

Ever wonder to yourself how to install a toilet properly?

In most cases installing a toilet isn’t easy. Take this picture above, the toilet flange/collar and bolts were broken once the older toilet was lifted from the ground. Now most the time this would be a super easy fix but honestly it never seems to be easy at all once you dig in and start repairing. Client call us up all the time in the middle off the project and say “we installed our toilet but now there’s leaking below what should we do”. Or something like “why does the toilet tank leak onto the ground”.

Now, just take a minute and step back from this situation and think. Ask yourself is this worth my time and energy to fix this myself? Most off the time homeowners that are DIY’ers (Do it yourself) try to repair and end up making the issue worse off then if they just would have called in the professional from the start. Meaning, the project now will end up costing more.
