Will My Garden Survive a Plumbing Emergency?

GardenWhen most people think plumbing emergency, they envision overflowing sinks and running taps inside a house, flooding carpets and ruining furniture, but statistically, most plumbing leaks and burst pipes happen either within the walls or out in the garden, particularly when septic tanks overflow or pipes get blocked. The thought of big trucks and diggers moving in to dig up the landscape is enough for any keen gardener to start to weep, but not all plumbers are created equal when it comes to leaving a worksite how we found it.

The team at Mainline Plumbing and Cheap Hot Water and Gas understand just how time consuming and precious a garden can be to some people. Whilst some excavation is often necessary to obtain access to the plumbing emergency or septic tank, we strive to leave our customer’s landscape as we found it, with minimal disruption to garden and surrounding structures as is possible.

We have seen it all when it comes to navigating around a backyard to fix plumbing problems and have experience with:

  • Retaining walls
  • Garden Beds
  • Lawn and established trees

Retaining Walls

Often very sturdy and highly expensive to replace, retaining walls are not a problem for our tradesman or their equipment. Very rarely will a retaining wall run parallel above a plumbing pipe and they are not permitted to be built over the top of a septic tank so as to allow access. Our modern equipment and expertise will ensure your retaining walls stay upright during our time on your property.

Garden Beds

Occasionally garden beds have been placed where pipes run from your home. If this is the case, minimal disruption of these areas is a consideration as we attempt to get your plumbing emergency under control.

Grass and Established Trees

Tree roots are a major contributor to pipe and leech drain blockages so sometimes it is necessary to remove the tree to fix the problem and prevent it from happening again. In the case of a large area of grass being disrupted, Mainline Plumbing and Cheap Hot Water and Gas are well-experienced in gently removing the upper layer of turf and replacing it when they have completed the job, resulting in minimal disruption to your grassed area.
