Signs You Need a New Sewer Line Installation

Signs indicating the need for a new sewer line installation or repair may not be readily apparent. Often, homeowners will only discover the problem when it is too late. However, there are some signs to look out for that may indicate the need for a sewer camera inspection and possible repair or new installation.

  • Your Home Is Older

Sewer pipes are designed to withstand time, normal use, and the elements (when underneath crawl spaces) and underground environments. However, with all things, age will cause wear and tear. Some factors that lead to deteriorated or broken sewer lines include shifting in the ground causing friction or small cracks in the line. If the home and pipes are older than 50 years, it is time to perform a camera inspection and check on the condition of the pipe. 

  • You Have Had Repeated Problems With The Drainage System Or Plumbing

Frequent backups in the home may be a sign the main sewer pipe has an obstruction or damage that needs repaired or replaced. All of the home’s interior drains, kitchen and lavatory sinks, tubs and showers, toilets, and laundry drains all flow into the main drain. When these drains experience constant problems, it is likely a main sewer line issue that needs to be resolved. 

  • There Are Large Trees On The Property

Tree roots are one of the most common causes of damaged or broken sewer lines. Roots naturally grow towards moisture, and there are plenty of rich nutrients in your main sewer line. If there are small seams, or the connections are worn from age, roots can easily find their way into the pipe and continue to grow. This can cause clogged toilets and tubs, as well as major breaks in the sewer line requiring replacement.

What are Common Cost Factors of a Sewer Lines Installation in Carlsbad, CA?

The cost of sewer line installation in Carlsbad, CA will vary depending on a number of factors, especially when comparing methods of sewer line replacement. Traditional sewer line installation often involves trenching to expose the pipe, removing the old damaged line, and installing a brand new line. Excavation costs, as well as cost to replace concrete or landscaping can be the most expensive aspect. With some forms of trenchless sewer line replacement, epoxy relining and pipe bursting, those costs are reduced and homeowners can have a brand new line in less time. There are other factors, such as:

  • A Municipal Sewer Line Permit is Often Required – We always include necessary city and municipal permits in our work to ensure homeowners are being protected and work is up to the proper uniform plumbing code. This can add to the cost, but is always presented in each estimate. 
  • Accessibility of Your Sewer Line – Sewer lines underneath crawl spaces or fresh earth are much easier to access. When they are underneath concrete, or the damaged area is under the home, the best methods are trenchless relining or pipe bursting. 
  • Length of Sewer Line Installation – The amount of sewer line that needs repaired or replaced will often affect the cost, and our team will work to ensure we provide several options for homeowners to consider.
    Before providing estimates, our sewer line installation experts perform a full video camera inspection to determine the best method of replacement and to help work within homeowners’ budgets. We will give homeowners multiple options when available so they can make the most informed decision for their needs. 

What Should You Expect from a Top-Quality Sewer Line Installation Service?

From start to finish, a professional sewer line installation service should include a video camera inspection, multiple detailed estimates, a full job walk through with the homeowner, and a timeline for completion. Homeowners should also expect any updates on possible third party needs, such as concrete patching or landscaping work. 

Our team will walk homeowners through the entire process prior to getting to work, and only work approved will be performed. Our goal is to deliver a positive experience with 5 Star service. We will work quickly and efficiently, and we keep our customers informed every step of the way.
