Cost for Sewer Line Replacement

A broken pipe in your home may have caused some water damage and was definitely an inconvenience, but at least it is fixed now.  While the problem may have been fixed, a sewer line inspection may prove beneficial with diagnosing any future problems that could arise.

Sewer Line Inspection

If you have experienced a broken pipe, odds are an inspection was completed.  The best method to have this accomplished is by utilizing a sewer camera inspection.  This process allows for a thorough inspection of your plumbing and allows for a trained Bill Howe technician to see what is going on.  With a complete view of your sewage system in your home, the plumber can thoroughly determine what needs to be replaced or repaired.  This can help diagnose root damage, locate drainage or stoppage issues, what type of pipe your sewer system is or damage to the sewer line.  If it is determined that there is damage to the existing sewer line or blockage, then a few things should be considered what’s next.

Drain Cleaning

If it is determined that there is a blockage in one of your lines, a simple drain cleaning may be necessary.  Some signs that your drains are blocked and need to be cleaned can be a backed-up or slow-clearing drain, clogged toilet or wastewater backing into your tub. Hydro jetting can clear not just grease buildup, but can help clear heavy root intrusion.  Hydro jetting uses high-powered water to clear the line for normal flow. This is a good option for sewer lines that are stable and have minor blockages.  

Another option to have your drain cleaned is to have your drain snaked.  A drain snake or auger is a long flexible metal cable that’s pushed through the drain pipe until it reaches the clog and then pushes through whatever is jamming the pipe. If needed, a certified Bill Howe plumber can help to clear the clogged pipe. 

Sewer Line Replacement

If your sewer line is damaged and needs replacing, there are a few plumbing services that you may want to consider for your home. Depending on what is found during the camera inspection of your sewer, you may or may not be a candidate for epoxy lining.  If a pipe is not too damaged, epoxy lining or trenchless pipe repair can be applied to reinforce the existing pipe. By doing this, you get to save money and your landscaping.  To apply an epoxy lining, the existing pipes are cleaned with mechanical tools and a material that is permeated with an epoxy liquid and placed in the exact location within the pipe  The epoxy cures in place and within a few hours, you have a new pipe. The epoxy lining holds its shape extremely well, increases the flow capacity, allows for 90-degree turn coverage and ideal for multi-story buildings.  Epoxy lining allows for trenchless sewer repair to occur. Once an access point is determined, digging trenches and ruining your landscaping is not necessary.  Trenchless sewer repair cuts costs on having to replace entire lines, repairing the damage done to your landscaping and extends the lifetime of your sewer lines. 

If your sewer lines are beyond repair and require replacement, Bill Howe Plumbing can assist with that and make the process as seamless as possible.  With traditional drain repair, excavations are necessary to access and expose the pipe. Once excavations are complete, a trained Bill Howe technician can provide a complete estimate and recommend a plan for a full or partial replacement.  This estimate will include the cost for parts and labor costs.  From here, you can determine what the average lining cost per foot will be for your sewer line replacement.

To have your sewer drain lines evaluated for snaking, hydro jetting, trenchless sewer repair or traditional excavation, call 1-800-BILL-HOWE (1-800-245-5469) to schedule an appointment with a certified technician now!

What Andy B. via Lennox Pro says about us

We have been using Bill Howe Plumbing’s service for more than 25 years and have been pleasantly surprised at how consistently they perform an excellent service call. We use them for our home and our rental properties, and their dispatchers and technicians have always been the best at problem solving; our tenants have told us how great the service is as well. When we needed air conditioning service, naturally we called Bill Howe first. There’s no reason to call anyone else. I know the job will be done right the first time, with fair pricing and professional service.
