Planting a garden or installing a water feature may be on your list of home improvement projects this year. If so, you’ll want to make sure you take note of a service you will likely need before beginning your project.

Whether you have a new connection to make or need to repair an existing sewer line, you will need to know where the sewer main and lateral lines or septic system and lines are located on your property.

You never want to dig on your property unless you know where your sewer, water, electric, and gas lines are located. Digging without knowing will only put you at risk for a costly repair or physical harm.

Sewer lines are buried underground, so there is no easy way to know exactly where they are without getting information from the county or utility service provider. However, this may not always take into consideration the repairs or new installations that have occurred on the property since the utility lines were installed.

Homeowners can sometimes be misled by contractors who don’t file the proper paperwork and get the correct permitting for the repair or installation of new lines. Professionals will know what is required and will work with you to ensure that your plumbing or other contracted work is completed with the minimum standards.

Because of this, it is possible that the sewer lines on your property may not match what a utility company or old survey may say. The only way to ensure that you’re not going to dig into an area where you shouldn’t is to have your sewer lines located by a professional with the proper equipment to detect the lines.

So if you plan to start a new garden, call for sewer line location services before you dig. That way, you can ensure that you know exactly where your pluming lines are for years to come.

Common issues with plumbing lines can pose problems if you need to repair them but can’t locate the sewer line. You could have:

  • Cracked or Broken Pipes
  • Blockages
  • Bellied Pipes
  • Crushed Pipes
  • Roots Infiltrating the Sewer Lines
  • Substandard Piping
  • Poorly Executed Repairs

If you believe you have any of these issues, you’ll need inspection and repair services. If you are installing a new system or need to locate your sewer lines, we are available to help you.

Our experienced team of plumbing experts at Brown & Sons have the knowledge and training to identify your plumbing problem. We have a number of minimally invasive services available to you that can help so you don’t end up with even more damage down the line.

How Our New Pricing & Service Menu Works

1. We go in and see what’s wrong with your home then we offer options for service, anywhere from platinum to band aid, and let you choose what’s best for you!

2. Most flat rate companies come and look at your problem and give one price to fix and no other options, so you never know if you are getting a good deal. We don’t do that, we will provide a better level of pricing that is more fair and customized to your needs.

3. It’s very frustrating to you when you contact the other guys and they quote you a single price, and only one option for service… it’s like “take it, or leave it!” when you do business with the other guys – but with Brown & Sons we don’t work that way! We give you a fully customized price quote that is specific only to your needs and give you options so you can choose the best plan for your budget.
