Why Sewer Line Replacement Might Be Needed

 

Why Sewer Line Replacement Might Be Needed

This is something as a homeowner I hope I never have to do, and that is replace my sewer line.  I have actually had to replace several sewer lines when I did plumbing calls every day, and this is something that no one should have to go through. One of the main causes of having to replace a sewer line is having tree roots in the plumbing pipe, and this is when you need a 24 hour emergency plumber in Rochester, NY.  Your main drain line usually runs in the back yard out to the alley or septic tank.  If you have trees in your back yard and have problems with your sewer line backing up on a regular basis, you might have roots in your line.  Once roots have entered the pipe, they continue to grow and expand, exerting considerable pressure at the crack or joint. This increased pressure can cause the pipe to break or collapse, in which case it will need to be repaired or completely replaced. If left undisturbed, roots will completely fill the pipe with hair-like root masses. The root masses quickly become clogged with toilet tissue, grease and other debris flowing from your home to the main sewer. A complete blockage may occur if the roots are not removed and enough waste material accumulates. If you think some of the problems mentioned in this article are occurring at your home, schedule a plumber today.

Two different days of service included a severely clogged bathroom sink drain being cleared of decades of accumulated sludge. The action needed was more than a simple drain clearing with chemicals or a plunger. I was and am very satisfied with the degree of efficiency and persistence on the part of the two individuals who worked to resolve the clog. Water has continued to flow without any delays in the sink emptying. No leaks occurred under the sink after everything had to be pulled apart to clear the clog.

The second need for service involved a basement water back up resulting from days of heavy rainfall. Water was coming in from the floor drain and through the concrete floor. In addition, the old sump pump was working but severely deteriorated and near ready to fail. New larger drainpipes replaced old ones and a sump pump was acquired and put in place. Water was extracted with a wet vac and all areas were mopped up. Subsequent heavy rainfall has not been problematic.

I am grateful for the immediate response in both instances. The need for plumbing services happened just a couple weeks apart. In both instances, service was immediate, efficient, effective and courtesy was exemplary. I am grateful for all kindness and efficient service.

Great job! Thank you, sincerely.

Our water heater went out on a Friday afternoon (as expected this was a terrible time with many companies being booked up). Leone plumbing scheduled us for the next day, but we got lucky and someone ended up being available sooner. They were quick, professional and we would absolutely use this company again!
