    Locate Sewer Lines Before You Start Digging

    Find & Correct an Issue Before a Large Renovation
    Sewer locates may not seem too important but having them done could prevent a future headache. If you are planning on redoing your driveway, parking lot or upgrading your landscape, you will want to know where your sewer is before you start digging. Recently a Plumbway customer had their driveway redone and started having issues with the sewer. When the video of the sewer was completed, it was found to have a shift in the clay pipe which was located under the new driveway. If the sewer had been previously located prior to the upgrade, the repair could have been made and further damage would have been mitigated prior to the driveway install.
