Located in Chamblee, Georgia and founded in 1985, the Zurns took steps to follow Ted and Wendy’s long-term goal of starting their own Atlanta plumbing business. Zurn Plumbing Service opened with a single truck and working out of their home office. After more than 30 years, the business has grown to more than 20, hard-working employees including the Zurn’s children Matt and Lisa.
Recently, the company received a call from a homeowner about a blockage in their sewer line. There was a 4 inch to 6 inch transition just outside the home. The crew ran a snake and unclogged the line, then inspected with a camera and found roots at every joint in the 6 inch terracotta pipe. Since the homeowner didn’t want to touch their yard and destroy it with excavation, Zurn Plumbing Service offered relining as an alternative. They cut a small hole in the floor of the unfinished part of their basement and installed 116 feet of transition liner from the home to the main. The main was located in the island of the cul-de-sac.
Prior to lining, the crew used a jet machine to cut all the root balls back to the pipe wall. Once complete, they installed a backwater valve to meet local code and concreted the floor back successfully clearing the blockage for the homeowner.
