Signs you need a sewer line replacement

The progression of a clogged sewer line is slow and painful. First the drains in your home start to slow down. Next the toilets, sinks, and tub drains on the bottom floor of your house start to clog up. Eventually the clogs make their way up to the rest of your pipes. Pretty soon you’re forced to dig up your sewer line.

What you’ll find is not a pretty sight! Your main sewer line might look like it belongs in a junkyard. It could be cracked and rusty with roots from a nearby tree tearing it apart. Maybe there’s some kind of muck and grime clinging to the roots—a mix of toilet paper, grease, and some kind of gumpy stuff—yuck! Unfortunately, this is a more common occurrence than many people like to think, especially as your pipes get older. In fact, once your home gets to be about 20 years old, there’s a good chance that you’ll need sewer line replacement sometime soon!

Methods of sewer line replacement

When most people hear the words “main sewer line replacement” they imagine nightmarish situations where their property is completely torn up and they have to pay thousands of dollars for both pipe and lawn repair. The problem is that many second-rate plumbing companies try to estimate where they think the clog in your sewer line is and dig that spot up. If they’re wrong, sorry! Time to try another spot. This adds up to a lot of labor, a lot of headaches, and a lot of money in sewer line replacement costs.

Well at James A. Wheat & Sons, we do our best to make sure this doesn’t happen to you! Our expert plumbers use a highly accurate video pipe inspection procedure that helps us pinpoint the exact location of the clog in your sewer line. This takes out all the guesswork and helps us make sure that your sewer line replacement job goes as smoothly as possible without having to tear up your yard!
