We really do hate talking about other professionals and their work. There are times though that we are going to have to. In this case, though we are not looking to trash anybody we are just saying that this is a fact. Your average plumber will not have the equipment necessary to dig below your home and work directly on a drain or pipeline. To be honest we may not be the best option to work on some of the superficial situations that they can get done in a heartbeat. So, again we are not looking to trash anybody here. If you need major drainage repair we are the right people to call!
The easiest way to know if you have backflow issues is if you see that there is water coming out from a pipe that it should not be coming out of. It is your drainage reversing course and dumping mostly “dirty” water back into your home. It does not take a genius to know that this is by no means a nice problem to have. If you happen to be experiencing this problem, especially if we are talking about pipes that run in or near your basement give us a call.
As we said before our intention is not to belittle what other professionals do. We actually constantly work with local plumbers on these issues. The thing is that a lot of people will give them a call first when they are experiencing these types of issues. When the plumbers realize that they are going to need to dig deeper than what they would have expected they give us a call and we come in and help them out. If you want us to work on a project with a plumber that you trust we will gladly do so!
Most of the times we get to work on french drains in crawl spaces and basements we also get calls about problems in people’s septic drain field. In these instances, it is very common that we end up having to install a new drain to make sure that the water that is running through your home follows a path that is not detrimental to the building. All that we want to say is that we can literally handle all sorts of drainage repairs.
