Sewer and drain repairs and replacements can be expensive. You want to be sure you're getting value for your dollar. You want to be sure you're not getting sold more than you need. You want to be sure the job is done right -- the first time. After all, you'll be living with the consequences for years.
Many sewer and drain cleaning companies are franchises. There may not be a license plumber in the entire company. If that's the case, they may not be able to do more than merely clear your line. If there's a break or if your line needs replacement, they will not be able to help you. If there is a plumber with the company, more often than not he's not likely to put in more than the minimum six hours of continuing education each year that Massachusetts requires to maintain his license. That's nowhere near enough to keep up with the technological advances that have been coming our way.
Your Cape Cod Sewer and Drain technician is part of a team that includes fully license plumbers who spend more than 100 hours in continuing education each year. Our plumbers are schooled and equipped in our industry's state-of-the-art "Green" technologies.
If the company you call doesn't have a full range of routers, a water jet system and chemical treatments, they may not succeed in clearing your particular clog. If they are able to repair or replace your lines, they may not have video line inspection equipment. If that's the case, they may end up digging up large sections of your yard before they locate your break. They may even dig up your yard only to find that there isn't a break at all. Our video inspection allows us to identify the exact location and nature of the problem. This saves a lot of disruption to your property and plantings.
If you're dealing with one of the large companies, the technician's training is often as likely to be sales techniques and high-pressure closing tactics as it is in plumbing skills.Whenever I'm making a large investment in my home, I want to be sure that the guy designing it has the most knowledge and my interest -- not his commission -- in mind.
