Sewer Line Replacement

light blue wave
Your sewer line is the pipe that runs from your home to either the septic tank or the city sewer main. It is the single pipe through which all of your plumbing waste passes, which makes it important for the health of the system, and while it is predicted to last up to 20 years, that does not mean it will.

Many things can happen over the years…

Tree roots can grow into the line, seeking fresh sources of water

Holes in the pipe can form and restrict the flow of water through

Corrosion can open holes in the pipe just like any other plumbing appliance

If you start to see frequent plumbing clogs or backups or pools of not-so-great water forming in your front or back yard, it is likely a sign of a sewer line issue. Issues like this should be resolved immediately.

Should You Repair or Replace?

After a certain point, it may no longer be cost-effective to continue repairing sewer lines. Here are some signs that may indicate that sewer line replacement is the best solution for you:

Old Pipes

If your home was built 50+ years ago and is now having recurring issues, it may be time for replacement.

Long-Term Issues

If sewage issues have been present for many months, there will often be enough damage to warrant sewer line replacement.

Persistent Clogs

If clogs keep happening even though you haven’t been flushing the wrong things down the drain, this may be a sign of bigger problems in your sewer lines.

Big Trees

Roots are a leading cause of pipe damage and typically require replacing and rerouting your plumbing. If you’re having sewage issues and also have many large trees near your home, you may need your lines replaced.
If you start to see potential sewer line problems, don’t wait to pick up the phone; call Lutz Plumbing immediately.

Sewer Cleaning

You might not need something as intensive as a repair or replacement sewer line; you could simply need a cleaning. If you start to see issues arise, contacting professionals can ensure you are giving your sewer lines the proper care.

Signs You Need a Sewer Cleaning:

Water backing up out of a drain or the toilet plumbing inside the house

A gurgling sound coming from the drains

Toilet water is coming up into the bathtub shower or floor drain, along with gurgling in the toilet

The backup will break the seal under the toilet, and water will show as a leak around the toilet

Slow-flowing drains

Bad odor coming from your drains.

Over 90% of mainline issues are caused by improper maintenance, so having your lines regularly serviced can alleviate many issues.
