NOLA Plumbing Service Company Reveals Secrets When Looking for Sewer Line Repair

National Economy Plumbers New Orleans, a residential and commercial plumbing company boasting more than 80 years of experience in the industry, revealed some coveted secrets when looking for a sewer line repair business, its representatives ultimately stressing the importance of finding a professional plumber with experience in the latest trenchless sewer repair technologies.

“Sewer repair or plumbing projects can be intimidating, what with homeowners not typically plumbing professionals with years of experience,” says National Economy Plumbers owner David Howard. “It’s a good idea to hire a professional to help with sewer repair, but the key is understanding the difference between your potential trenchless sewer repair pros and those who are complete novices in the field.”

According to Howard, it’s vital to first and foremost find a plumbing repair professional who boasts experience with the latest trenchless sewer repair approaches, as advanced trenchless pipe bursting technology is constantly evolving and new state of the art innovations constantly introduced. When partnering with a proven nationwide leader in trenchless sewer repair technology, home and business owners can be assured of quick, reliable and minimally disruptive repair projects.

When looking for a sewer line repair professional, it’s also important, says Howard, to check for the proper licenses and certifications that ensure the business can install, repair and maintain sewer systems, sewer laterals and related plumbing capabilities. “Checking status of licenses is an important first step to judging whether a contractor is fit to work for a customer or not,” he adds.

Trenchless sewer repair services do not end after the sewer lateral has been repaired, and as such, National Economy staff point out how restoration practices need to be adhered to for a proper, well-completed project. Examples of such restoration practices as performed by National Economy include proper backfilling – the process of replacing any dug-up materials with new material – and compaction (required to strengthen the material being backfilled).

“It’s also important to know exactly what to be aware of when beginning a partnership with a trenchless service,” explains Howard. “Knowing what to ask and what to look for could help avoid costly additions in the long run, though we always advise our own customers to be aware of ‘bait and switch’ services such as ‘free’ camera inspections taken when they’re not present, lack of a recorded inspection copy and service charges added to the estimate – for the same ballpark figure as a camera inspection.”

According to Howard and other senior National Economy representatives, a sewer line repair company should ideally evaluate a customer’s issue before providing a procedure for the recommended repairs; the exact procedure will differ depending on the problem, but can potentially include determining the sewer line problem, locating the sewer line, removing the existing sewer line, sewer line replacement and testing the sewer line.

In addition to premium sewer line repair, National Economy Plumbers offers sewer camera inspection services, water heater repair, drain cleaning and gas line repair to residents in the Metairie, Kenner, Merrero, Chalmette and Terrytown areas of New Orleans.
