The total cost of a project depends on many factors, including:

  • The size of the project. Hydrovac projects may last as little as one-half day up to several weeks. More extensive projects will cost more.
  • Travel time to the site. Service providers will include travel costs and time to the job site.

How often should a backflow preventer be tested near Apex?

If your home has a backflow preventer, you should hire a licensed contractor to test your backflow preventer every 1-3 years in the Apex, NC, area. Commercial building owners should schedule a backflow prevention inspection every year.

Backflow preventers stop non-potable water from accidentally flowing back into the clean water supply. Here are just a few of the problems that an inspection can help avoid:

  • Sewage Incursion
  • Heavy Metal Contamination
  • Chemical Contamination

Routine backflow inspections prevent these serious health threats and building codes and federal law require licensed inspections in most cases. To learn more about requirements in the Apex area and schedule an inspection service, contact the local experts at Water Worx!

How often should storm drains be cleaned in Apex?

Your storm drains should be cleaned every year, according to industry norms. Regular storm drain cleaning ensures that your catch basins will remain clear and free of debris, allowing storm water to easily drain away from your property.

Do stormwater catch basins need to be maintained in Apex?

It is incredibly important to have your catch basins maintained, but the majority of property owners do not get their catch basins cleaned and inspected on a regular basis. This is usually because most of us don't give catch basins any consideration. Having said that, catch basins serve a very essential role. 

Catch basins help prevent precipitation from flooding streets and parking lots, and from entering buildings. When disasters occur, the catch basins on your property can be the difference between safety and extensive property damage. It is imperative that you make sure your catch basins are properly maintained on a regular basis.

How do I know if I have a sewer or septic system near Apex?

The property disclosure you received when you purchased the home will be able to tell you if you’re on sewer or septic. If you don’t have those documents handy, inspect your property for signs of a septic tank. A septic tank is likely to be visible if you can plainly see a single, unnatural-looking mound very near to your property. 

 

Also consider your home's location. You're probably on a sewage system if you live in town or in nearby suburbs. You're more likely to have a septic system if your house is in a rural region where maintaining a sewer system is likely to be more expensive than septic.

Examine your bills. Because sewer systems are not free, if your home is connected to one, you may expect to get bills from it. If the sewage provider does not charge separately, check your waste or water bill for sewer costs. There will be no cost for your septic tank.
