When your property is situated to where you cannot connect to and rely on a city sewer connection to dispose of your home's sewage and wastewater, the only other option is an on-site septic system. Because a septic system is your own personal sewage treatment system, it is important that it is installed in the right way and continually works properly so you don't end up with a smelly and toxic mess in your home or outside on your property.
Sewer line repairs may look simple, but the work can be much more complicated than it seems. Here is a look at some of the mistakes property owners make attempting DIY repairs on an ailing sewer line.
Mistake: Causing damage to the line during the dig-up process.
Digging up a sewer line is no easy feat. Once you locate the point in the line that needs repair, you will have to either manually dig up that area or rent trenching equipment to do the job.
When you rely on your septic system to collect and treat the sewage waste from your home, it is important to keep an eye on its condition to watch out for problems in its workings. Your home is not connected to a city sewer line so there is no one else that is keeping an eye on your system if you do not. The condition of your septic system and how you take care of it can make a big difference in its service to you and its need for emergency repairs.
