Pipes running from the home to the city lines are generally buried. Generally, these are the water and sewer lines. A break in either of these pipes can spell a major disaster for the household. Locating the pipes should be done before any of these activities are conducted.
Repairs on the sewer lines will require the help of a Pipe Location Service in Lakeland Florida. Sewer lines typically run from the house to the septic tanks. Another line runs from the septic tanks to the city drains. If there is no septic tank utilized, the lines run a direct path to the city sewer system. However, the location of this piping isn’t always available or disclosed. Identifying the area where the piping is located will make it easier to dig up the lines for repair work.
Landscaping usually poses a hazard to piping systems. This is because the large movement of dirt is usually involved. It can be easy to dig in the wrong place especially if the lines aren’t marked. Since repairs to the water line add to the budget costs and may result in delays, all underground piping should be marked to help avoid extensive digging in those areas. A little prevention at the start can result in savings down the road.
Digging a large hole such as a new pool may also require the help of a Pipe Location Service in Lakeland Florida. Like with the landscaping project, piping can easily be destroyed during the digging process. Marking the location will also determine if the pipes have to be moved to make room for the project. This can be worked into the budget and planned for early enough to prevent delays from occurring. A controlled movement of piping is easier to accomplish than trying to repair and move a busted pipe.
Most piping going out of the home is buried. Where these pipes are laid down can be a big mystery. In many cases, this information is not passed to homeowners. By identifying the piping runs before any of these projects are started, time and potential repair costs can be saved.
