  • Sewage backups

  • Clogged pipes

  • Pipe leakages

  • Pipes that break

  • Tree root intrusions

  • Old, worn-out pipes

If your drains are moving more slowly, it may be due to a problem with your sewer line. If you have sewage backing up into your home, there’s no doubt you’ll need to schedule sewer services immediately.

Pros & Cons of DIY Repair vs. Professional Repair

If you’re considering sewer line repair, contact a qualified professional. While one of the pros of trying to do it yourself may be saving money, you can actually be at high risk for sewer line damage with a DIY repair. Hiring a professional to repair the sewer line may be more cost-effective in the long run.

One of the cons of DIY sewer line repair is that you don’t have the right tools. While you could dig into your yard to repair the line or send a snake down it to get clogs close to the home, most problems require specialized tools. Working with a professional means you have access to those tools.

Don’t put your sewer line at risk. Contact The Pipe Doctor for sewer line repair from qualified plumbing professionals.

FAQs About Sewer Line Repair

Does homeowners insurance cover sewer line repair?

Homeowners insurance policies cover sewer damage if a named peril, like a massive storm, caused the damage. Normal wear and tear or tree root infiltration are not covered.

What do I do with roots in my sewer line?

Plant root intrusion is a common problem with sewer lines. Calling a professional to clear the line is the best way to deal with this problem. You can also talk to the plumber about how to prevent the roots from growing back.

Can I do my own sewer line repair?

DIY sewer line repair is not recommended. Too many things can go wrong if you don’t have the right tools, and most homeowners can’t reach problems deep in the sewer line.
