  • Lack of plumbing maintenance
  • Improper sewer pipe installation or design
  • Mineral or debris buildup
  • Tree root intrusion
  • Aging pipes
  • City sewer line backup

What Is Sewer Line Repair?

Industry professionals developed this sewer line repair method using a cured-in-place pipe in the 1940s. We essentially use this pipe to create a new lining inside the pipe you already have running under your property. This practice may have decades of history as a repair technique, but it wasn’t practical for service providers unless they could identify blockages and breaks in a sewer line using a camera-equipped snake. The cured-in-place pipe uses a felt tube that we place to run your original sewer line’s entire length after soaking it in an epoxy that lets the fabric harden. After snaking the felt tube into place, we force hot air into it, expanding it to fit your pipe’s walls and speeding up the curing process. We then remove all the installation equipment and fill in the hole, giving you a sewer line that can last for decades.

What Causes Sewer Line Damage?

Sewer line damage can happen from various causes, including earth movement, nearby construction, tree roots, and the things you flush down your sink, toilet, shower, and tub drains. The garbage disposal in your kitchen may break up food and waste to flow down a drain effectively, but those particles can still build up and cause problems. Things like hair, soap, toothpaste, shampoo, pasta, rice, chicken bones, cooking grease, and all other elements traveling through your sewer pipe are potential risks. You can end up with clogs as these materials collect inside your pipes. However, you can help prevent clogs by performing simple steps like scraping plates into your garbage before rinsing them in your sink. Furthermore, we strongly advise you never to pour hot grease down your drain. It takes a highly trained professional like those on our team to determine sewer line damage’s location and severity, so be sure to get in touch with us if you notice any signs of an issue or haven’t had a professional check your sewer line in a while.

Does Homeowner’s Insurance Cover Sewer Line Repairs?

It’s rare for a standard homeowner’s insurance policy to cover sewer line repair or replacement services. However, an industry has emerged to accommodate this niche, with a simple internet search revealing at least a half-dozen companies offering secondary or supplemental insurance policies covering sewer line-related costs. These policies cost around $20 a month on average and provide $5,000 a year of benefits. Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Cleveland strongly recommends going over the fine print before purchasing this insurance type to verify they cover all the sewer line repair and replacement expenses you need. Unfortunately, some people have been unhappy with the sewer line coverage they purchase because of additional expenses they had to pay out of pocket, such as pavement restorations and excavation costs.

How Much Does It Cost to Replace a Sewer Line?

While Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Cleveland offers all our services at competitive prices, we understand homeowners’ concerns over how much replacing their sewer lines will cost. Honestly, no two sewer line replacement jobs are the same, so your job’s overall cost is dependent on various factors, including how much of your sewer line requires replacement and its total length. You should expect to pay between $55 and $95 per foot of your installed pipe just for your line’s replacement. Other factors affecting your replacement’s cost include possible excavation costs, landscaping replacement, and backfilling after performing trenchwork. A complete house-to-street replacement will cost the average homeowner between $4,000 and $25,000 or more. Our team will discuss the details of your property and sewer line to determine an accurate estimate.
