Tips to Prepare Your Home for Sewer Repair

Sewer repair
At Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Phoenix, we know how stressful a damaged line can be. From dealing with slow drains and leaks to a backed-up line, one source of that stress comes from a lack of knowledge about the repair process. Fortunately, by properly preparing your home for the process, you can help speed up the repairs. We share the following tips to help prepare your home for sewer repair services in Mesa, AZ:

Plan for the Worst-Case Scenario

Although a professional plumber does everything within their power to complete the work within hours when they repair or replace sewer lines, the job can sometimes take up to three days depending on a variety of factors. Prepare for the possibility that you might go days without water, which means that you might need to stay with a loved one or at a hotel. Your Field Supervisor will consult with you if that is necessary depending on how long the job is estimated to take. Remember, we do this on your schedule, not ours.

Remove Every Possible Obstruction

Plumbers need access to the underground lines to perform sewer pipeline repair. Remove any objects located directly above or near those lines that might delay them when digging to gain access, such as outdoor furniture, a shed or gazebo, vehicles, landscaping equipment, and potted plants. These are items that your Field Supervisor will discuss with you before we start the job and assist you when needed. If you choose a trenchless method as many of our customers do, there will be a lot less moving and replacing when we are finished.

Prepare for Extensive Landscaping

Since a plumber might have to tear up a large area of a landscape, especially during sewer line replacement, make a plan for fixing the landscape post-repairs to reduce stress. In that plan, always include an estimated landscaping budget.
