Signs That You Need a New Sewer Line

How do you know if your sewer line needs replacing? Here are some things to look out for:

  • Sewer backing up through toilets and showers
  • Clogged or slow-flowing drains
  • Poor water pressure
  • Tap water that’s rusty
  • Soggy lawn areas
  • Flooding in basement
  • Hike in water bills

If you notice any of these issues, call a professional to have them scope out the severity of the problem.

Sewer Line Replacement Options

You do have options when it comes to sewer line replacement. The cost, as well as the method, differ between each option. Consult a professional to determine which method is best for your situation.

Sewer leaks and backups cause all sorts of problems. The sooner you get the issue fixed, the better.

Traditional

The traditional method of replacing a sewer line involves excavation. A trench will be dug in your yard for workers to access the old pipe and insert a new one.

Trenchless

Trenchless sewer line replacement is much more convenient than the traditional method. It can also be less expensive in some situations. It involves less noise and work, and it doesn’t require the digging of a trench.

Luckily, the trenchless method requires that higher quality pipes be used. So you’ll have less hassle and noise to deal with and you’ll get a better sewer line than you would in other situations.

Thanks to the higher quality, you’ll have fewer problems down the road and repairs, when needed, will be easier.
