To DIY or Not to DIY

A new sewer line replacement is a major overall of your home infrastructure. However, there are multiple ways to complete the installation. In addition to the traditional method of digging up your lawn and laying a new plumbing system, trenchless sewer repair is a new method to potentially choose.

Trenchless plumbing is a new, very safe and cost efficient way to solve plumbing and sewage problems for properties. However, DIY trenchless plumbing can be dangerous and a professional must be employed in order to avoid mistakes, cost-overruns or injury.

You must know all the facts to make sure that you avoid problems. There are several important pieces of information that are important to remember when hiring a professional rather than doing it yourself.

Dangers of DIY Trenchless Sewer Repair

  • First, a professional trenchless plumber has a tremendous amount of expertise. They insert the plumbing through two small access points in either end of the property, rather than creating ugly and dangerous trenches. Without this expertise, the points and system may be installed incorrectly. In fact, an amateur installer may choose the wrong technology completely. The sewer camera inspection done by a professional can pinpoint exactly why a system line is backed up.
  • Second, amateurs may incorrectly complete the step process of trenchless sewer repair. The steps include an evaluation of the existing plumbing system with a sewer camera, clearing out old pipe and covering the pipe with an epoxy sealer. Without a professional process, the entire new system can be impaired.
  • Third, an amateur may lay the ground for future damage of the system by tree roots, pavement or other landscaping hazards. A proper and professional installment of the epoxy lining will prevent these damages. An amateur may not have the foresight to understand where the roots will grow and how they may impact the system.

Overall, without hiring a professional, an amateur may install a system that is inefficient, unreliable and may eventually cost more to repair than the savings of the original DIY installation. In fact, trenchless sewer repair is already much more cost efficient than traditional sewer installation because there are so many fewer workers that need to be employed.
