Common Reasons for Sewer System Replacement

When your sewer system is on the fritz, it can be a stressful time. This is one of the most important systems in your home, and not just for the convenience factor! Sewer systems are also an important part of making sure your family stays healthy and that your home is safe to reside in. Sewer system replacement in Plymouth should only be done by a qualified company, so make sure you call us when you need a new system. In the meantime, here is more information about sewer system replacement and the most common reasons we know of for this type of work.

When tree roots grow into a sewer line and cause cracks or a broken pipe, this can sometimes be repaired, and the whole sewer system does not need to be replaced. We use a new type of technology that allows us to repair your sewer lines without the need for any digging. Known as trenchless sewer repair, this is when we pull a resin-based liner into the existing pipe. That expands and seals any cracks or fissures. But sometimes the pipe is too damaged for this type of work, which is when a sewer system replacement will be needed.

If we see that a sewer line is broken or totally collapsed, we will have to inspect the line further to see if a repair is needed or if we should recommend a sewer system replacement. But if we repair the line and discover even more problems, this could be another indication that sewer system replacement is the best course of action. Of course, we will discuss all of this with you when you call us to learn more about sewer repair or sewer system replacement.

And if we come out and repair your sewer line only for it to continually stop up again, this is another indication that a sewer system replacement should be done. In the long term, this could end up being a more cost effective and less stressful undertaking than constantly coming to your home to repair your sewer lines.

But the only way to know for sure if you need a sewer system replacement is to give us a call. We can come out and assess the situation and let you know what our recommendation is.
