Identifying the Problem

The first step in the sewer line repair process is identifying the problem and its root cause. Many times, a home will experience problems with only one or two of its lines, and it can be challenging to determine which one is causing the problem. We will start your water line replacement by checking each fixture in your home for leaks and discoloration, as well as any appliances that may be running too much water at one time.

Preventing Damage

The next step to replace sewer line sections that have been damaged is to prevent any further damage to your water line. If you are unsure of what type of pipe your home is using, or if you live in an area where there is a lot of construction, it’s best to have a professional inspect the pipes before you begin the process. This can often be done by calling a plumber for a free estimate.

Connecting the New Pipe

Once the plumber has determined the location of your water line and the type of pipe it uses, you can begin connecting the new pipe. The process of water or sewer pipe line repair, as well as replacement, oftentimes leaves a mess on the worksite. After the work is done, the crew will then clean up and cover up the site. The last thing done is testing to ensure that there is no more leak and the new water line has been installed properly.
