Our Residential Sewer Line Repair Options

We can determine the extent of the problem and find a fast, cost-effective sewer line repair solution that works for you. We specialize in residential sewer line repair that is quick, easy, and as non-intrusive as possible so we can maximize convenience and minimize downtime. Here’s a look at our innovative residential sewer line repair options:

  • Pipe Relining - If you need new pipes, we can find the easiest, least invasive way to provide them. Our innovative pipe relining process allows us to give you new pipes from the inside out by using a sleeve lining to prevent pipe cracks and breaks. We first completely clean out the pipe and then apply a quick-hardening lining. Unlike traditional pipe repair and replacement, this method of sewer line repair is much faster, easier, cheaper, and less invasive.
  • Burst Pipe Hydraulic Replacement - If your sewer pipe is too damaged for pipe relining, we can pull a new sewer pipe through the old one to fully replace your pipes. This technique is also minimally disruptive and trenchless, and we use hydraulics to carefully break apart the damaged pipes to replace them with new ones.
  • Pipe Maintenance - Our preventative pipe maintenance services can prevent costly sewer line damage from occurring in the first place. We specialize in sewer line inspections and residential drain cleaning services that can clear out gunk and debris, identify early warning signs of problems, and prevent clogs, breaks, and damage.

What Causes Sewer Line Damage?

Various causes exist that can inflict damage to your sewer line, such as tree roots, earth movement, nearby construction, and the materials that flow down your sink, shower, tub, and toilet drains. Your kitchen garbage disposal may thoroughly break up discarded food scraps and waste materials so they flow down a drain without any issues, but those materials can still accumulate inside your pipes, causing problems in the not-too-distant future. Hair, toothpaste, soap, shampoo, chicken bones, rice, pasta, cooking grease, and other scraps and particles flowing through your sewer pipe potentially endanger its performance. These materials can collect inside pipes and lead to clogs that slow and eventually block water and waste flow entirely. However, you can perform simple measures to help prevent clogs, such as scraping waste off plates and disposing of it in your garbage can before taking it to your sink for a rinse. Additionally, regular drain cleaning can help you prevent these materials from collecting and blocking wastewater flow. Lastly, Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Corpus Christi strongly urges households never to pour hot grease down their drains. You’ll need a highly trained service professional like our team members to assess your sewer line damage and determine its location and severity. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you haven’t had a professional sewer line check in a while or notice any signs of an issue.

Will My Homeowner’s Insurance Cover Sewer Line Repairs?

It’s uncommon for the average homeowner’s insurance policy coverage to include sewer line repair or replacement services. However, an industry accommodating this niche has emerged. You can perform a simple internet search to reveal at least several companies doing business in your area that offer supplemental or secondary insurance policies with sewer line-related cost coverage. On average, these policies typically cost about $20 a month, and you can secure $5,000 of benefits every year. Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Corpus Christi strongly urges every household to go over this insurance type’s fine print before purchasing it to ensure the plan they acquire covers all the necessary sewer line repair and replacement expenses. Some people have had unfortunate experiences with their supplemental sewer line coverage because it ended up costing them additional out-of-pocket expenses. These insurance plans didn’t cover various parts of their repair or replacement services, including pavement restorations and excavation costs.

How Much Does Replacing a Sewer Line Cost?

While all of Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Corpus Christi’s services come at competitive prices, we know homeowners have concerns about how much it will ultimately cost them to replace their sewer lines. Honestly, one sewer line replacement job will always be different from all others in some way. With this in mind, your project’s overall cost depends on many factors, such as your sewer line’s total length and the amount of it we will need to replace to restore its condition and performance. Typically, you should expect your service costs to be between $55 and $95 for every foot of your installed pipe, which just covers your line’s replacement. Other factors impacting your sewer line replacement’s ultimate cost include possible landscaping replacement, excavation, and backfilling costs after we carry out trenchwork. An entire house-to-street sewer line replacement’s average cost for a homeowner lies between $4,000 and $25,000, but this project can cost more. Our service professionals will discuss your project, sewer line, and property details to determine an accurate job estimate.
