Why Would I Need To Replace My Sewer Line?

Older sewer lines should be replaced to avoid a sewer line bursting which will cause sewage to seep into the ground. This results in a terrible stench and potential damage to your home. Tree roots are another common culprit. Tree roots can cause damage to exist sewer lines. Finally, if you have constant drainage issues and no amount of snaking or pressure cleaning cleans permanently solves the problem it might be time for a new sewer line. 

How Can I Tell If I Need To Replace My Sewer Line?

If you have standing water that is particularly foul in your yard this may be a result of a damaged sewer line. You may also notice damage in the house or frequent backing up. Lastly if you slow or no drainage you might have a broken sewer line.

Why Would I Need Sewer Line Repair?

The need for sewer line repair in Boulder and Gilpin counties can arise for a number of reasons. Tree roots can disrupt pipes, as can shifting soil, heavy infrastructure, and massive clogs. Sediment can also build up in the pipes over time, and depending on their materials, corrosion can pose a problem, as well.

Frequently Asked Questions

Sewer line installment is a fairly in-depth process. It starts with mapping the site and confirming the pipe’s depth. An engineer typically assists at this stage, so they can compute the slope. Then it’s time to dig the trench, install the pipes, and apply the backfill. These are the basic steps of the process, though it’s not uncommon for complexities to arise along the way.
Generally speaking, if you experience any plumbing issues, you should call out a professional to evaluate your sewer lines. Examples include slow drains, leaking pipes, excessive backflow, and foul odors emanating from drains or appliances. A soggy lawn (or patches of bright green grass) could also be indicative of a sewer line problem.
Since so many variables can influence the longevity of pipes, there’s really no way to predict with certainty how long your sewer lines will last. If you’re curious, however, there are some averages to note. Clay pipes, for example, last for about 50 years, while PVC elements can last for a century. This is assuming, however, that they don’t incur any damage over their lifetime.
It can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks to evaluate a site and then prepare the plans for sewer line installment or repair. The actual work, however, can usually be completed in less than a week. Generally speaking, smaller jobs take two to three days to complete, whereas larger projects than three to five days.
