Sewer line replacement and repair service is the many tasks involved in sewer maintenance. This is a job so infamous that only very few plumbers would even dare to put up with the task. Sewers is not pleasant especially for the sanitary-obsessed person, but someone has to do it and those with the gumption deserve respect. Drainage lines require cleaning and repairing broken pipes from time to time in order to operate properly. Plumbing Professionals who perform this type of work take pride in their efforts despite the fact that it is a grueling and arduous task.
Wha do we need to know about our sewer lines?
These pipe lines can be located either above ground or underground. In your house, drainage pipes are connected to sewer lines. If you are lucky the problem will be in the drainage lines themselves and not in the sewer lines. Drainage lines from the kitchen and bathroom sinks, bathroom toilets and showers are often easy to deal with compared to sewer lines. Some lines have components that are found deep underground and require special equipment to access them for a repair. This task requires the services of a trained tech since sewer lines are interconnected, hard to get to and can be complex.
Where Is The Sewer Main?
The drainage pipe lines from your property connect to the public lines inside the sewage canal which is also called the sewer main. Inside the sewer mains, it is not uncommon to find vermin such as rodents and roaches not to mention the existence of toxic liquids and a putrid stench. Hired professionals wear protective suits which can include breathing apparatus so they are well prepared for the task. They also have been trained in the skills required for such work and hazards associated with it.
Most common drain or sewer line problems are your toilet not flushing normally or showing signs of clogging or blockage by draining slowly. This example could be a simple clog in the actual toilet or right below in the connecting pipe to the sewer line and can often be fixed by plunging the toilet or buying a chemical drain cleaner. If that does not solve the problem then hiring a professional plumber to run a snake wire down the line is your next choice. If none of that works then you may have to deal with an expensive sewer line replacement project which does not come in cheap. Replacement line costs vary based on several factors such as locations of trees, utility lines, length of the lines, and even local plumbing codes. The costs due to labor and materials could easily be in a couple of thousands of dollars.
