Sewer lines are a little bit yucky, but it’s even worse when yours isn’t working correctly. Older homes that haven’t been updated in a long time might need new sewer line installation. If you’re building a home or commercial property or rebuilding on the site of a demolished property, you’re probably going to need a sewer line installed. This is a major project, and with any major project, you’re going to want to know what to expect before things get started.
What Does a Sewer Installation Entail?
A sewer installation is a lot more than putting a pipe in the ground and calling it a day. The pipe by itself won’t do much – a sewer system has a lot of smaller components that work together to funnel sewage away from your home. If any of them aren’t working properly, the results can be pretty messy.
Grinder pumps and septic pumps work to pull the water away from your home, and these pumps are put in special housings with meter boxes to keep them safe and functioning property. The laterals and the mains give the water a place to go, connecting to either a major sewer system or a septic tank. While it’s a little complicated, it usually doesn’t take a very long time to install a sewer system.
Home sewer installation and commercial sewer installation differ slightly. Home sewer installation is often a much smaller job, while sewer systems for commercial properties or large buildings have different demands. It’s the same kind of installation, but on a larger scale. Equipment designed for home use is much too small for commercial use, and commercial equipment drastically exceeds the needs of the average household.
How Are Sewer Lines Installed?
Sewer lines need to go deep beneath the ground, which usually requires excavation services. We offer these services, so you won’t need to call an excavator before you call us. We’ll connect the sewer line with all of the proper pumps and housing to your home, and then run that line out to either the septic tank or into the major sewer system. When we’re done, we’ll test it out, fill everything back in, and everything will be right and ready.
When something is wrong with your sewer system, it may not always be apparent what that problem is. Sometimes, the pipes just get old and corrode. The pipes used today are much higher in quality than the pipes used in decades past, which have a tendency to rust out after a while. You might need to have the lines themselves replaced.
Sometimes faulty pumps or clogs are the culprit. If something went into the line that wasn’t supposed to go into the line, such as a mistakenly flushed child’s toy or a large amount of grease, the line needs to be cleaned out. This can also put strain on the pumps, causing a “Catch 22” scenario. If you’re having problems with your sewer, we can have a look and let you know whether it needs to be repaired or replaced.
Occasionally, homeowners want their sewer lines installed to completely bypass a septic system. This usually happens when a septic system has become problematic. If you’re constantly having to call to have the septic tank fixed or pumped, going onto the main grid can save you a ton of time and money in the long run. It’s easy to convert and connect in when your septic tank is becoming a huge hassle.
