Sewer lines constructed after 1980 were most likely made of PVC pipe which can last as long as 100 years; however, sewer lines built earlier than the 80s were usually made of clay which has a lifespan of 50 to 60 years. Older homes can begin to experience drainage problems and may even require a new sewer main installed. The best thing to do first is to contact one of the sewer companies in our network and schedule a professional to come and evaluate your sewer lines to determine the source of the problem. It is possible that your sewer is clogged by a tree root or that a section is cracked and needs to be replaced. A sewer main expert can diagnose the problem and propose a remedy.
Sewer Main Installation Costs: Average sewer main prices can differ considerably based on a wide range of factors. When workers have to cut down trees or grind stumps to get to the sewer line, this adds to the cost. If gas lines or other utility lines are in the way, this will drive the cost up as will having to tear up a road, driveway or sidewalk to access the troubled lines. Sometimes homeowners can save a little money with a process called "slip lining" which consists of slipping a newer line inside the older, damaged one. The most important thing is to make sure you use a licensed and insured sewer main installation company like those in our network.
