Sewer Line Replacement and Installation FAQs
Does homeowners insurance cover sewer line replacement?
It depends. If the damage is located within your property lines and was caused by a natural event, replacement may be covered. This varies between policies, however, so the best way to determine whether this service is covered is by contacting your insurance provider.
How long does it take to replace a sewer line?
It depends on how extensive the damage is. Our licensed plumbers can often replace your sewer line within a day. On average though, it can take anywhere from one to three days.
How long do sewer lines last?
With the right maintenance, most sewer line piping lasts 50-100 years. Clay pipes last 50-60 years, cast iron lasts 75-100 years, and PVC lasts 100 years or more. Sewer lines may need to be replaced sooner than this due to tree root intrusion, weather damage, or internal corrosion.
