What is a Sewer Line
A sewer line has a very important job. It is responsible for removing wastewater from your drains and transporting it to the main municipal sewer drain. You won’t see your sewer line since it is installed underground, but it is part of your plumbing system. It is the homeowner’s responsibility to keep it well-maintained.
Signs That You Need a Sewer Line Replacement
It can be challenging to know the difference between needing a sewer line repair or replacement. It usually depends on the extent of the damage and the age of your sewer line. Our plumbers will be able to give you a definite answer.
Increased Water Bill
If there is an increase in your water bill, something in your plumbing system is to blame. There could be a leak in your sewer system causing this spike in your water bill. This means that your sewer line is damaged, and repairs may not be able to restore it. You may need a sewer line replacement.
Gurgling Sounds from Your Pipes
If you hear constant gurgling from your plumbing system, something is horribly wrong. This usually means that there is a blockage in the pipe, preventing the water from draining properly. While you can use a plunger to correct this, you may need a professional plumber to inspect your sewer line and tell you if you need a replacement.
If your sink, bathtub, and shower are having trouble draining water, it could mean that there is a build-up of minerals or sediment in your sewer line. This can cause permanent damage to your sewer line over time. If your water is draining slowly, contact Home Service Heroes.
Constantly Wet Yard
If your yard always has wet spots, even when it hasn’t rained, there is a problem with your plumbing system. This is usually a sign that there is a leak in your sewer line. If the leak is too severe for repairs, our qualified plumbers will recommend a sewer line replacement. If your sewer line is old, this is a good idea.
Smell of Sewage
If you notice a foul smell in your house, it could be a blocked drain or another plumbing problem. However, if the unpleasant odor is coming from outside your home, it is likely your sewer line. This is a health hazard and should be dealt with right away. Contact us to handle your foul-smelling sewer line.
Types of Sewer Line Replacements
When you hire a professional plumber, you can be sure that the job will get done properly! Our plumbers can handle your sewer line replacement in two different ways:
Traditional Sewer Line Replacement
This is the more popular method of replacing or repairing sewer lines. A plumber will dig up the area around your sewer line and remove the ground, so they work on it. Often, this requires heavy construction equipment and can be quite expensive. If you have just done your landscaping, this may not be the best way to go about your sewer line replacement.
Trenchless Sewer Line Replacement
A trenchless sewer line replacement is a modern method of working on your sewer. This is more cost-effective and less time-consuming than the traditional method. We won’t need to dig up your whole yard just to get to your sewer line. Most homeowners don’t know about this efficient method of replacing and repairing your sewer line. Home Service Heroes is here to tell you about our trenchless sewer replacements so you can take advantage of them!
Sewer Replacement Timeline
You may be wondering how long this process will take. While it is entirely up to the length of the sewer line that needs replacing, and the type of replacement method you choose, a sewer replacement can take up to 3 days to complete. However, it can also take half a day. Speak to one of our plumbers when they come out to your home, and they will give you a definite sewer replacement timeline.
