Tim Thompson Plumbing services customers in the southeast area of Michigan, known locally as “Downriver.” The majority of its work is maintaining sanitary sewer laterals, or the pipes that connect from the dwellings to the public main.
Most homes in the Motor City (Detroit) area were part of the rapid growth and expansion during the booming economy dating back to the early 1920s. These “cookie-cutter” neighborhoods add to the complexity of sewer repairs because the residential properties are generally very small lots with lateral sewers running out to the backyards, continuing to the city main.
Maxliner’s customer, Royal Flush Plumbing recently completed a CIPP lining job for St. Prius Church in Providence, Rhode Island. The church’s pipes had severely deteriorated. They were hidden behind marble and granite, and encased in concrete. Marc Watson, owner, Royal Flush said “It was a risky project. We didn’t know what we were going to find behind the walls.”
