A professional plumber will make quick work of your clogged drain, but some projects need more specific services, experience and expertise. Here are three questions to ask a plumber about specialized services.
Can You Provide Trenchless Sewer Services?
Replacing a sewer line is a big project. In older homes, aging pipes, tree roots, and stubborn clogs can all be the culprit behind problems that necessitate a sewer line replacement. And because it’s not nearly as accessible as drains in your home, reaching a sewer line often means digging into the ground with a backhoe. It’s messy, expensive, and requires a lot of labor – problems that can be avoided with trenchless sewer replacement. Ask your plumber about their specific methodology. Here at River City Plumbing, we favor the pipe bursting approach, and we’re happy to explain it in detail as it applies to a particular project.
Can You Service Septic Tanks?
Repairing septic tanks is another specialized service not available with every plumber. In Reno and Sparks, RCP has the experience to offer this service, though we don’t pump them. Septic systems tend to be complex system various components. Without the right experience, repairs can quickly generate new issues, like wastewater backing up into the home or failing drain fields. Ask your plumber about their experience with septic tanks, and if it’s limited, keep looking.
Is Emergency Service Available?
The unfortunate truth is that most plumbing emergencies don’t happen during regular business hours. You need a plumber who can be available when you need him the most. If you’re the type to plan ahead so you have a trusted company on speed dial, ask about their emergency services.
