Worry Free Sewer Replacement in Austin
Replacing your sewer line can be expensive & disruptive, so we do not take it lightly. Our plumbing experts will first inspect your home’s sewer system to pinpoint damaged areas and then evaluate whether it makes more sense to repair damages or replace the entire line. When damage is extensive or likely to reoccur, a sewer system replacement is often necessary. While it’s the most invasive install your home will see, our team will work with you to complete the replacement quickly and to cause as little disruption to your home and yard as possible. We also offer 0% financing to help you manage an unexpected sewer replacement need.
Does Your Sewer Line Need to Be Replaced?
If your sewer line is getting clogged and causing draining issues very often, there may be a bigger sewer pipe problem hiding underground. Over time, the cost of repeated sewer cleaning will add up and the problems will likely continue to escalate. If you have one area of damaged sewer pipe, it may be possible to repair this section only. But if there is damage throughout the piping, you will be looking at a full sewer system replacement. You also may consider a sewer replacement if your sewer is composed of old or inadequate materials or was improperly installed.
Red Flags For Sewer Line Replacement
Age of Your Home
Sewer pipes tend to fail more frequently as they age due to wear and tear on the system. If you aren’t sure how old your sewer pipes are, consider the age of your home. Homes that are built over 50 years ago are much more likely to require a sewer system replacement.
Sewer Pipe Material
Today’s modern pipe materials are much more durable than in days past. Even PVC is now made with thicker walls to prevent root damage. Many older homes have sewer systems constructed of clay tile, cast iron, and thin wall PVC pipes. Clay tile begins to break down at 50 years, while cast iron can remain healthy for 75 to 100 years plus. PVC is significantly more durable, and today’s thicker PVC will last longer than thin wall PVC. If you are having repeated sewer issues and your pipes are made of dated materials, it’s likely to be more cost effective for you to replace your full sewer system in the long run.
