Oakland sewer repair and replacement is available with a coupon for $100 off until 09/01/2015 from Evenflow Plumbing. They are calling this coupon the Safe Digging Special. The coupon is available to people who need a sewer lateral replaced in order to get the PSL Certificate which is required to be in compliance with the Oakland Private Sewer Lateral Ordinance which is overseen by EBMUD. April is National Safe Digging Month. The purpose of which is to emphasize how important it is that professionals and homeowners alike call 811 and follow the safe digging process to help prevent explosions, injuries, property damage and inconvenient outages in the United States and Oakland.
Sewer repair in Oakland can be dangerous, especially when underground utilities are involved. “Given the recent PG&E gas explosion in Fresno and other significant gas line breaks we thought it would be a great idea to make a new coupon so people can understand how important it is to call 811 before digging. We see licensed and unlicensed contractors every day in Oakland and throughout the East Bay digging trenches without calling 811 first,” says Gary Dimodana, Owner of Evenflow Plumbing in Oakland.
According to Gary a lot of home owners and real estate agents who are involved with sewer lateral replacements just assume the company they are dealing with goes through all of the appropriate precautions while replacing the sewer line but that is not so, “A lot on plumbing companies and sewer contractors out there think they can get the job done quicker if they don’t call before they dig but what they don’t often realize they may be putting lives at risk. Look at what happened with that explosion in Fresno.”
Evenflow Plumbing is the Gold Standard when it comes to trenchless pipe replacement and sewer repair in Oakland. They always consider safety as their number 1 priority and they have never caused an explosion. “Homeowners and real estate agents should ask the contractor they hire for sewer line replacement if they call 811 before they dig. If they even hesitate you should run,” says Dimodana. “A lot of times Real Estate agents advise their clients to wait until the last minute right before the escrow is scheduled to close before trying to schedule their sewer lateral replacement. Then they try to pressure the sewer repair company to complete the job extra fast to meet a deadline that has been in existence for over a month. This doesn’t leave adequate time for the people at 811 to come out and mark the lines.”
Evenflow Plumbing was recently featured in a PG&E Call 811 video. The video highlights the importance of calling 811 before digging. “We wanted to do the video with PG&E because we want to be part of the solution. There are thousands of gas lines damaged from dig-ins every year. Reducing the number of dig ins will help to prevent explosions and keep our neighborhoods safer,” says Dimodana. A dig-in is when a person starts excavation work underground and hits an underground utility such as a gas or power line.
