Sewer Replacement in Marietta

There is a really important part of your plumbing system that doesn’t get a whole lot of attention: your sewer line. The reason why it’s often left alone is because it’s located underground; hidden, and out of sight. Because of this fact, we will often see sewer mains that are poorly maintained and in need of some TLC.

As a homeowner, you may not notice that you even have a problem until you have backups all throughout your home. In some cases, that may be too late – and a repair just won’t cut it.

How Do We Know if Your Main Line Needs Replacement?

We’ve been doing this a long time, so we know what’s normal and what’s not. If your sewer main is backing up more than once a year, and you find yourself calling in a drain cleaning team often, then it’s time to consider replacement. Though it seems like a bad option, in the end you will save time and money.

  1. The most common reason we see for these sewer main problems is a tree root infiltration. Roots are attracted to the nutrients, oxygen, and moisture that your pipes hold, so they’ll find a way in, grow, expand, and eventually clog up your line. But, if left like that for too long they can do much more serious damage.
  2. Sewer replacements can be difficult jobs because they do require some excavation.
  3. But – don’t worry! Our team will only use the excavation route if absolutely necessary, and if it does come to that, rest assured we won’t leave you to clean up the mess yourself. We will perform the work as quickly and affordable as possible, while also helping you put back together your yard.

 

Vent Stack Repair/Replacement

Another piece of your plumbing system that deserves attention is the vent stack. A vent stack is used to filter gases away from your home. It’s used to create an air supply to give the drains and toilets in your house easy operation. Without one, you’d be in for a big mess when doing simple tasks like flushing the toilets.

Waste is removed through the vent stack and is taken to sewer main, so you and your family don’t have to deal with sewage backup in your home. Normally, they are maintenance free, but sometimes problems can still arise.

Does Your Vent Stack Need Repair or Replacement?

Trust us – if you are having a vent stack problem you’ll know it! Your drains will gurgle frequently and you will smell sewer gas odors coming from the drains.

Some information on the process:

  1. Despite the easy diagnosis, repair needs to be left to a professional.
  2. There are a number of things that could go wrong – you could do damage to your existing piping system, cast iron stack pipes can come crashing down -and you don’t want to be left with a worse problem than when you started.
