Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I call a professional plumber to repair my grinder pump system?

Attempting to repair your own grinder pump system is not advisable due to the complexity and potential risks involved. Grinder pump systems are intricate and critical components of wastewater management, and improper repairs can lead to environmental contamination, health hazards, and legal issues. Without the necessary knowledge, skills, and compliance with local regulations, DIY repairs may result in serious consequences. It is recommended to hire a licensed professional who can assess and address issues appropriately, ensuring the proper functioning of the system and compliance with regulatory standards. Regular professional maintenance is essential for preventing problems and maintaining the longevity of the grinder pump system.

Trenchless sewer line repair is an innovative method that addresses damaged or deteriorating sewer lines outside your home without the need for extensive excavation. The two main techniques include cured-in-place pipe (CIPP), where a resin-coated tube is inserted and cured within the existing pipe, and pipe bursting, which involves pulling a new pipe through the damaged one, and simultaneously fracturing and replacing it. Trenchless methods offer benefits such as minimal disruption, faster repair times, cost-effectiveness, durability, and versatility in addressing various sewer line issues. Consulting with a professional plumber can help determine the suitability of trenchless techniques based on specific conditions and repair needs.

While most plumbing issues can be resolved without excavation, there are specific situations where excavation services become necessary. Excavation involves removing soil to access plumbing below the ground’s surface. Our excavation contractors utilize hand and power equipment to excavate and inspect the area, making repairs when required. Excavation may be needed in cases such as severe blockages from solid objects or tree root intrusion damaging sewer lines. Major plumbing system updates, like transitioning from a septic system to a public sewer line connection, may also necessitate excavation. When you’re unsure about the cause of a plumbing issue, consulting our experienced plumbers is the first step. Radiant Plumbing and Air provides comprehensive services, including excavation and plumbing repairs, ensuring efficient problem resolution from start to finish, saving you time and money.

Yes, permits are typically required for excavation, particularly when it involves sewer pipe repair or replacement. In both San Antonio and Austin metro areas, securing the necessary permits is essential. At Radiant Plumbing and Air, we take care of all the permit-related paperwork, ensuring a seamless process for homeowners. You can trust us to handle permits and expertly manage your excavation project from start to finish, providing peace of mind and compliance with local regulations.
