Sewer Line Replacement FAQs

How do I decide between sewer line repair and replacement?

Typically, it’s best to replace rather than repair sewer lines if the damage is severe and widespread. Under these circumstances, you may still benefit from trenchless sewer repair if the pipe is still stable.

Does sewer replacement always need to involve excavation?

Not always. There’s a trenchless method that involves breaking up the existing sewer line and installing a new one behind it. It’s called pipe bursting and it can be just as cost-effective as trenchless repair.

How long does it take to replace a sewer line?

It depends on the method used, the location of the sewer line, and the extent of the damage. Typically, however, the work of our plumber in Alexandria, VA, can be done in a day or two.

What do I need to do to prepare for sewer line replacement?

The only thing we ask during sewer pipe repair or replacement is that you please clear away any items or materials from the affected line so we can access the sewer line that needs to be replaced.

How long do results last with sewer line replacement?

As long as you’re mindful of regular maintenance a new sewer line can last for several decades.
