For dependable sewer line replacement in Southeast Michigan, please contact the plumbing experts at AAA Service Network today.

Why Do Sewer Lines Fail?

Sewer pipes are designed to last for decades, but they are not infallible. Their location underground makes them susceptible to several types of damage, and some materials wear out faster than others. The following are just some of the most common reasons why sewer lines fail:

  • Blockages: From tree root intrusion to gradual grease buildup to foreign objects wedged in the pipes, blockages of any kind may prevent water from flowing freely. Fortunately, we can usually resolve these issues with sewer line cleaning or repair.
  • Broken Pipes: Settling soil and the seasonal freeze/thaw cycle may cause your sewer pipes to crack, collapse, or become punctured.
  • Corrosion: Old age can lead to rust buildup in a sewer line, especially if it’s made of cast iron. This restricts water flow and may eventually cause a crack to develop in the pipe.
  • Leaky Joints: If sewer pipe joints break or corrode, they could start leaking, contaminating the surrounding soil with sewage.
  • Bellied Pipes: The sewer line may sink unevenly due to settling or heaving soil. Debris and waste collect at the low points of the pipe, eventually causing blockages.

Sewer Line Replacement FAQs

What is the average cost to replace a main sewer line?

Sewer line replacement costs vary depending on the severity of the situation. According to the national average, sewer line replacement can range between $4,000 and $25,000. AAA Service Network offers plenty of financing solutions to help families manage the cost of their sewer line replacement needs.

Is sewer line replacement covered by homeowners’ insurance?

While some providers offer water or sewer backup as an optional add-on to their standard homeowners’ insurance policy, coverage is often limited for these options and most insurers do not include such coverage in their standard policy. If you’re having difficulty, be sure to ask us about our available financing solutions with approved credit before scheduling service.

Can you replace a sewer line without digging up your yard?

Yes! Thanks to trenchless sewer line replacement methods, our team will be able to replace your broken sewer pipes without digging up your yard. Instead, we snake the new pipes through the old ones and once they are properly in place, the new pipes expand inside the old ones until the outdated pipes collapse, leaving the new ones safely in place.

When should I start thinking about sewer line replacement?

Most sewer lines are designed to last a minimum of 75 years; however, sewer lines may need to be replaced sooner if:

  • They were improperly installed
  • Poor soil conditions exist
  • You’ve flushed hair, food, grease, and other debris down your drains
  • Trees are located near your underground sewer lines

Our master plumbers recommend considering sewer line replacement when you’ve noticed an increase in clogs and slowing drains.
