What to Expect From Sewer Line Repairs

All of the drains in your home lead to the main sewer line, which runs from your home and connects to a city sewer line or septic tank? The sewer line is the largest drain of your home and is, therefore, very susceptible to clogs. Usually, sewer line clogs are caused by a buildup of debris over time. This can also occur when tree roots have penetrated the walls of the pipe. If your sewer is backed up, it can lead to other problems in no time, including drain backups throughout the home. This is why it is so important to contact a plumber right away once you notice a problem.

Is It Necessary to Repair or Replace?

A sewer inspection is recommended for current homeowners, as well as new homeowners who are looking to purchase a used home. The only way to know for certain whether your sewer line requires repair or replacement is to hire a professional plumber to complete a thorough sewer inspection. JCN Plumbing uses a video camera to inspect sewer lines, giving homeowners full visibility into any potential problems they see what the plumbers see. If damage to the sewer line is localized, plumbers will replace any damaged pipe sections using an open cut or trench. A small trench gives plumbers access to the source of the problem while minimizing damage to the surrounding yard and landscape.

Some plumbers recommend having your sewer line inspected twice per year, while others recommend closer to once every three years. Once your chosen plumber has inspected the area, they can advise you on how often you should have your pipes inspected going forward.

It is good to mention that Cast iron pipes were used for more than a century for home plumbing because they were a relatively cheap product, but at the end of the day, they end up getting rust and breaking. They've been virtually replaced since the invention of PVC plastic pipes, which are even less expensive and can last even longer.
