Sewer Repair – What Do You Need to Know?

Often you don’t find out there is a problem with your sewer line until you need a sewer repair! Most homeowners aren’t prepared for sewer problems or sewer repairs, and will have many questions:

  • How do I know if I really need the repair?
  • Who should I call to evaluate my line?
  • How do I find a good contractor?

It happens. Older homes that have not had a sewer replacement will usually have old clay sewer lines.  Over time the clay lines will break or get small cracks. Once there is a crack, tree roots will find their way into the sewer line as a water source.  As the tree roots grow, cracks become larger and lines will usually clog.  If your sewer line is clogged, typically a call is made to rooter the line and clear it.  Be sure to call a reputable company to clean or scope your line.

If your sewer line is clogged:

  • Call a reputable plumbing or rooter company. Check references.
  • Ask what they charge and what you will get for that cost.
  • Will they only clean the line or will they also scope it?
  • If they find a problem will they provide a sewer scope DVD and mark where the problem is?
