Sewer Repair vs. Sewer Replacement


Melissa Paul, ABC10 -  When not done properly, plumbing repair can drain your bank account. So we spoke to an expert who explains when a simple spot repair is needed - or - when it’s time to replace that full line.

Fixing the cause of a backup is more cost effective than maintenance. There are options for both repair and replacement.  There are a few things that homeowners and business owners should consider.

When a video inspection is done, you’ll be able to see whether or not there are roots at multiple sections throughout the pipe, or in one isolated area.  Another important factor is - before making an investment - check the age of the home and the pipe that you are considering repairing or replacing.

The only way a homeowner or business owner can find out what to do is through a video inspection of the sewer line.  Get both repair and replacement options before making a decision, so you can get the right solution at the right price.
