Sewer Line Repair
Sewer line issues may seem unexpected, but they often result from damage that occurs over time. Some of the ways sewer lines can become damaged include:
- Cracks or punctured pipes from shifting soil, temperature changes, or root invasion.
- Backup from clogged drains.
- Corroded pipes from aging, harsh drain cleaning chemicals, or improper installation.
Depending on the type of sewer system and location, our professionals will determine the best possible approach for repairs. Whether you need pipe relining, cleaning, or burst pipe replacement, we have you covered.
We also provide trenchless sewer repair, if standard repairs aren’t possible or ideal.
Common Signs of Sewer Line Problems

Why does my bathroom smell like sewer?
There could be bacteria growing in a bathroom drain. Try clearing debris out of the drains and scrubbing them clean. The smell could also be caused by a lack of water in a p-trap. Usually, this can be fixed by simply running the tub, shower, and sink water for a few moments.
If these tips don’t work and this sewer smell persists, there may be a sewer backup. Call our pros at (800) 259-7705 for sewer services.
Can a sewer line unclog itself?
It’s possible, but never a good idea to risk it. Even if a sewer line clog manages to clear itself, it’s possible that damage either caused or resulted from the clog. It’s always best to contact a licensed plumber to inspect your sewer lines if you’re dealing with any kind of backup. This way, they’ll find any additional repair needs and determine a long-term maintenance solution to prevent hazardous and costly damage.
Can you tell me what to do when your sewer backs up?
Here’s what you should do:
- Call your local Benjamin Franklin Plumbing for emergency sewer services at (800) 259-7705.
- Follow the direct advice of your plumber.
- Wear protective gear if you have to walk through any sewage.
- Avoid using any plumbing fixtures until your plumber arrives.
Does home insurance cover sewer lines?
In most cases, home insurance will cover sewer line damage within your property lines if it’s caused by a natural disaster. If the damage is caused by poor installation or maintenance, however, damage is unlikely to be covered. Always contact your insurance provider to determine your full coverage and limitations.
