The owner of a single home residence in New York City called with a common occurrence earlier this morning. He stated that the sewer line was backing up into basement toilet when water is used, and getting worse as time passes.
As displayed in the above video, the first 20’ of clay pipe was in decent condition, nothing too concerning that would cause a sewage backup.
Recently in Manhattan the owner of a 3 story brownstone contacted the NYC DOT after noticing a sinkhole forming in front of her house. At first it was a small slope and after monitoring for a few weeks, it started to form a large hole.
Earlier in the week we received a call from a new customer claiming that there sewer line was backing up and their plumber attempted to clear it out with a snake. The plumber was not successful, he “hit a wall” inside the sewer pipe which he could not pass and proceeded with a sewer camera inspection.
specifically grateful for one of the Project Managers (Mr. Smith). Harris was awarded the water main installation after the homeowner received a DEP 3 day notice for a broken water line. At the time Mr. Smith was not aware that the homeowner interviewed four other companies and figured he was hired for the same reason most other people in this situation hire Harris- “Everyone knows Harris” – “You guys have been in business for 100 years” – “My neighbor had a water main installed by your company” etc.
We have created a video to assist in the visual aspect of a sewer installation. It is important for the homeowner to understand the extent of work to be performed, and words can only explain so much.
We hope you find this video helpful!
