What to Expect During a Sewer Line Replacement
You may have experienced clogs, backups, sewage odors, excessive pipe corrosion, or tree root damage that has caused your sewer line to need replacement.
Sewer line replacement, though it will change somewhat depending on your unique situation, will roughly follow this process:
Diagnosing the problem and finding the location is the first step of this process and often begins with a sewer camera inspection. An inspection may last 30 minutes to an hour and allows our team to find the root of the problem, which may be a blockage, tree roots, or a collapsed pipe. After we have found the source of your plumbing issues, we will estimate the repair cost, including landscaping, sidewalk, or street excavation.
You may be able to temporarily move expensive landscaping or other large obstructions such as fences to minimize the cost of yard work after the replacement. Our team will mark all underground utilities and protect the work area to reduce the disruption to your yard and avoid utility lines during excavation. We want the job to be done right the first time, and protecting areas of your outdoor space may take more time but can save you money after we repair your plumbing.
Finally, it’s time for installation. We will have a DEP inspector watch and approve our sewer line installation, so you are assured the job is up to code. This entire process may take up to a week but is worth waiting for high-quality materials and proper installation. The most important part of your sewer line is its slope, as sewage removal works based on gravity. If there is an improper slope or poor installation, you could experience sewage backups that can cause another replacement in little to no time.
