Not all needed home repairs are visible!

One of the big problems facing homeowners is the lateral sewer lines from their property to the road where the sewer authority takes over responsibility for them. Many of these pipes, especailly in older properties, by that I mean over 75-100 year old are simply, are just breaking down. Because of the break down of these pipes it is creating some environmental issues for townships and municipal authorities because of increased use of sewer capacity for cleaning CLEAN water. This increases costs and prevents future development as plants are already rnning at capacity.

This video shows some of the issues and how to solve them if your pipes do need repairing. I know in our area the water authority offers an insurance policy for repairs to water and sewer lines. Even relatively new pipes can get damaged and cause problems.

We love a fire over the winter months, when it starts to get chilly, there is nothing better than warming the house with a nice cozy fire. We installed a wood stove a couple of years ago and it has helped us to reduce our heating bill… more
