Deciding Between Sewer Repair and Replacement

Neglect of maintenance can lead to damage or clogging. When this happens, homeowners have to decide whether to repair or replace their sewer line. Fortunately, an expert in sewer repair services in Phoenix, AZ like Mr Rooter Plumbing of Phoenix can help you determine the best solution.

Our expert team has years of experience in sewer line replacement and repairs and can provide you with lasting solutions. After performing an initial inspection, we base our decision on the following factors:

The severity of the damage

Minor damage on the sewer line such as cracks and leaks typically only require sewer pipe line repair. However, if the damage is too severe or the issues have been recurring for months, a full replacement may be the best solution. While we can still try to resolve the damage, it’s highly likely that the issue will recur in the near future, so a replacement is the more cost-effective solution.

Age of the sewer line

As the system gets old, it starts to deteriorate, the infrastructure starts to wear out, and frequent repairs become inevitable. Therefore, it is advisable to replace sewer lines if they are past their prime. Failure to replace the whole system will often see you incur the unnecessary cost of repairing the lines. No matter how much money you spend on repairing an old line, you won’t be able to restore its durability and efficiency.

Unprofessionally designed sewer system

Most if not all systems designed by untrained and inexperienced plumbers commonly lead to issues. Even blockages and bursting are more common, which means more frequent servicing is needed. If we determine that the root of your plumbing issues is caused by a faulty design, we would recommend a full replacement to avoid recurring issues in the future.
