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.

I made an appointment to have Leone come out to repair my toilet fill valve and shower spigot. They had some truck issues but Andy communicated timing to me as best he could. Jamison came out and knew right away what needed to be done to repair both problems and had both issues repaired in about an hour, including running out to grab a part and coming right back. Jamison was very helpful and professional. Would recommend to friends/family.

Leone Plumbing did a great job replacing a hard-to-reach, stopped up pipe in our home a few weeks ago, mid-COVID19 shutdown. The plumber wore a mask, gloves, booties and was responsible about social distancing. He responded promptly, on time, and the price was reasonable. All is well now with our plumbing thanks to Leone Plumbing!
