Sewer Line Replacement
Sometimes, if a section of sewer line needs extensive repairs, it’s easier to just replace the entire section. With our pipe bursting machine, we’re able to do just that! This machine breaks up the existing line, while replacing it with a new pipe, all without digging out the old one! Check out the process in action in the video below!
How Long do Sewer Lines Last?
Ideally, sewer lines should last for a very long time (around 50 to 60 years). Older pipes may still use clay, but newer pipes use PVC (polyvinyl chloride) which is rated for use for more than 100 years.
How Much Does it Cost to Repair a Main Sewer Line?
Sewer line repair can be one of the more expensive plumbing jobs. Digging up and replacing sewer line can cost anywhere from $50 to $250 per foot of line. As a result, the overall cost varies from around $3,000 to $25,000.
Is Sewer Line Replacement Covered by Homeowners Insurance?
Homeowners insurance covers water damage from a leaky roof or damage to interior pipes due to poor or old insulation, as well as fire damage from faulty electrical wiring. For sewer line repair, problems with exterior plumbing or wiring may or may not be covered. It is best to check with your insurance company and review your coverage.
