A clog or break in your sewer line can cause major problems. At General Plumbing, we offer expert sewer repair to efficiently resolve the issue to help save you money and headaches often associated with plumbing problems. Our team is happy to evaluate the situation and recommend the most affordable and effective course of action, from cleaning to trenchless sewer repair.
What Causes the Issue?
Sewer repairs are most often necessary because a tree root has found its way to the piping. Consider that any given tree may have thousands of little roots seeking moisture, and your lines pump plenty of water through the ground. Clay tile piping is especially susceptible to damage and can leave you in need of sewer repair service.
Aside from tree roots, our team often assists customers with problems caused by:
- A blockage that occurs as objects find their ways into the lines, necessitating sewer cleaning.
- A freezing and thawing ground that causes bursts or breaks
- An older piping system that simply needs an overhaul
No matter how your piping has been affected, our certified plumbers can fix the problem.
How We Can Help
At General Plumbing, our goal is to resolve your issue quickly and with as little disruption as possible. We can employ trenchless sewer repair, which does not require digging up your yard and hardscaping but still gets the job done. Our sewer repair service also includes using video camera inspection to confirm your piping structure, identify the source of the issue and indicate the best route to take.
In addition to sewer cleaning and pipe repair, we also offer relining services, which places a line inside a faulty pipe and seals any damage. As a certified Perma-Liner installer, we pass along a manufacturer 50-year material warranty, which means your sewer repairs are done to last.
Typical Sewer Line Repair Cost
Your sewer main is the primary line that connects your home to the city’s main sewer system. When the main needs to be replaced, it can quickly become an extremely expensive job. Most homeowners will spend around $2,300 to repair a crack in their sewer main or sewer line. However, if the line runs underneath a driveway or the street, you could be looking at a cost well into the tens of thousands. The city will not pay for such repair work, unfortunately, and it is all left to the homeowner. Most homeowners insurance does not cover sewer line repairs, which means you must have a budget set aside for emergency plumbing repairs. Without the sewer line, your home’s waste has nowhere to go, so it is a job that needs to be completed as soon as possible.
Emergency Sewer Repair
As a property owner, it is your responsibility to maintain the water and sewer lines running from your home to the public utility connection or the city’s sewer system. Should a line leak, crack, or clog, you could be looking at a few thousand dollars for repairs. Without the system functioning as it was intended, however, there will be no waste treatment in your home. Your plumbing system may back up, causing an overflow in the house if the issue is not rectified promptly.
At General Plumbing, we offer emergency sewer repair any time of the day. If the system bursts at midnight on a cold winter day, you can still give us a call and have our experienced plumbing technicians come to your home and fix the issue. Please do not hesitate to call because it is late at night. We are here for our community.
Tree Root Removal from Sewer Line
One of the most common reasons for a sewer line blockage or break is a tree root. Over time, nearby trees’ roots can snake around and through your pipes, compromising the material and causing leaks or clogs. If this happens in your backyard, you may begin to notice an odd smell and frequent plumbing clogs throughout the house.
The good news is that a technician from General Plumbing can remove the roots using powerful tools. Thanks to advances in plumbing technology and techniques, digging up a sewer pipe isn’t as invasive or as expensive as it once was. We can even recommend products to help prevent the same problem from occurring again. Once you notice any signs of pipe breakage, it pays to act fast. If left alone, the root will engross the entire pipe, causing further clogs, reduced flow, bad odors, and slow drains throughout your home.
Cracked Sewer Pipe Repair
A broken sewer pipe can lead to extensive property damage and pose a health risk. It can also mean costly repairs. That’s why you should turn to General Plumbing for quality plumbing services. As pipe repair experts, we can get your plumbing system up and running again using cost-effective repair techniques.
You can simplify the repair process by catching cracked sewer pipes as soon as possible. Watch for signs such as strange noises from the toilet, insufficient water, slow drains, frequent clogs, and a sewer odor in the basement or yard. If you notice any of these, call a plumber promptly. The damage will only increase over time — as will the corresponding repair costs. You can trust the sewer pipe repair experts at General Plumbing. We’ll fix the pipe without damaging your yard or invading your home, and we can offer professional advice to prevent future issues.
How to Avoid Expensive Sewer and Drain Repairs
As a homeowner, you probably don’t think about the sewer system on your property very often. However, you should, since you are responsible for any repairs and maintenance that are required for those sewer lines. Sewer work can be quite costly and devastating to your home’s yard. Consider having your sewer system and drains inspected to prevent major problems. Our technicians will notify you of any issues that may require repairs. If an issue is detected early, the cost won’t be nearly as high as it could be later on.
Having the sewer system insured can also reduce the cost of sewer or drain repairs. Your homeowners’ policy does not usually cover sewer repair services. Shop around or speak with an insurance agent about covering your sewer lines. The premium may run a bit high, but this cost will be offset by the savings on future repairs.
Is it possible to just perform a spot repair anywhere in the sewer?
Sewer repair is one of the most troublesome plumbing issues a homeowner may have to deal with. Such repairs are often associated with high costs and excessive digging that ruins the landscape. Spot repair, however, is an excellent alternative. Our trained technicians can solve any problem in the sewer line without tearing up extreme lengths of land. Depending on what your needs are, we can perform repairs on just one foot of the sewer line or the entire length.
A spot repair is designed to fix cracks, fractures, or broken joints in the sewer line. The biggest advantage of spot repair is its cost effectiveness. Spot repair does not require several thousand dollars’ worth of equipment and excavation. Our technicians use the latest technology and tools to locate the issue and fix the problem efficiently and affordably. By the time they are done, your line will be impervious to the issues that caused the problem in the first place.
