      In our front yard, we have a 42-year-old, saturated 100 ft. leach line (its a 3 bdrm. house). We are pretty handy around the house, and are considering putting in a diversion valve and new 75 ft. line about 10 ft. from the old one (w/ permit, of course). Is this a job better left to the pros? Our estimates have averaged $3K, and wed like to save that money if possible.

      Be careful of the PRO you use, and especially if they want to use the chamber system.We have been suffering for over 2 years since a PRO, licensed and insured, and certified by the county, allowed the PRO to install a 150 chamber system in our yard at a debt of 108 inches.It has overflowed into our house over 20 times in the last 2 years. We have just finally pushed the county to agree to put us on sewer.It has been a long, tough be careful what you do and who you allow to do it.
