Sewer Line Replacement

ConstructionSometimes a clogged main sewer line (and thus a flooded basement) cannot be solved using the conventional electronic cabling or high pressure water jetting to free the clog. In circumstances where your sewer line has completely collapsed, there is a major shift in the line, or the line has become so entangled with roots that electronic cabling cannot break through, you need to dig out and completely replace the main sewer line.

Excavation as Preventative Maintenance

In other instances, you’re just tired of a flooded basement and the costliness that comes with preventative maintenance. Sewer line replacement is a permanent solution to backups and slow drains. Once we replace your sewer line, you will never have to think of a backup or flooded basement again. Lay it and forget it.

How Sewer Line Replacement Works

The process is rather simple: McHenry Sewer & Drain will dig the pipe out of your yard, replace it with modern PVC piping and cover the trench. While excavated sewer line replacement is permanent, it can be damaging to your yard and often shapes up to be a large job. It is less costly than trenchless sewer line replacement and can be performed on any sewer system, but the total cost of restoring the yard must be taken into account. For example, many people have patios, decks and prized petunias covering their sewer line. To reach it, these must be dug up. Additionally, the cost of replacing these enhancements must be taken into account.

Sewer Line Excavation. A Necessary and Complete Option

Sometimes excavation and replacement are the only options for a homeowner, such as with a collapsed, shifted or broken pipe. If your basement floods often and you would like the peace of mind that comes with a guaranteed solution, you may want to consider sewer line excavation.

We offer a lifetime warranty with this service, so you can rest assured that your sewer line replacement will last.
