Do You Need Sewer Line Replacement?

The most common way to identify a major problem is a hopelessly backed up drain or, worse, when the entire plumbing system refuses to drain or flush. However, you can watch for other potential warning signs that may signal an impending issue. Large trees on or near your property may cause damage to pipes, as can ground settling.

If you have a basement, you may notice a backup at the floor drain, areas of unexplained dampness or detect a foul odor that wasn’t there before.

Soggy spots in the yard are usually indicative of a problem with either the sewer line or the main water line. You may notice that the grass around a certain area seems more lush, grows faster, or is a different shade of green. In other cases, your nose knows a problem is brewing. If you notice a sewer-like smell, it’s a good idea to get the problem checked out.

If the problem is advanced, you may see soil collapse or sinking concrete (or asphalt), if the problem is below a patio, sidewalk, driveway, parking lot, etc.

What Is the Method for Replacing a Sewer Line?

The traditional way of replacing a sewer line involves digging a trench between the house (or business) and the location where the line ties into the city sewer system. Old piping is removed and new piping is put in place. Once the new pipes are in, connections are made and the system is tested. Dirt is replaced around the pipe and compacted to help prevent settling.

If the line runs under a structure or hardscaping – such as sidewalks, patios, etc. – the process may require concrete or asphalt saw-cutting and removal. In that case, the materials must be replaced once the repair is done.

Schedule a Professional Sewer Line Evaluation

The best way to determine the extent of the problem – or if a problem even exists – is to have a professional plumbing contractor evaluate your system.

We use state-of-the-art technology and equipment to evaluate the situation and recommend the best approach for repairs or replacement. This may involve running a camera down the line or using other cutting-edge equipment to detect leaks.

In some cases, we may be able to provide a partial line replacement or even a trenchless sewer line repair. However, if you do need a more extensive repair, our team has the knowledge and experience to get the job done right.
