Sewer Line Repair and Replacement
It’s a dreadful day when your sewer line just collapses beneath your home. Sewage can back up into your home, and that’s just not fun for anyone. John Nugent & Sons offers a variety of sewer line services to fix problems including:
Blockages – grease buildup or another blockage that restricts proper flow.
Broken or cracked pipes – damaged sewer lines due to ground freezing or settling.
Leaking pipes – the seals between the pipes can break, allowing water to escape.
Roots in the sewer line – tree or shrub roots can grow into the pipes damaging the pipe or preventing normal cleaning.
Sunken pipes – soil conditions can cause piping to sink into the ground causing waste or paper to get caught in the “belly” of the pipe.
There are a variety of ways that you can fix sewer line pipes. You can either repair the broken piece of pipe by cutting it out and replacing the small portion of the pipe. Or in some cases you may have to replace a large portion of the pipe. Piping is either metal or plastic; older houses will typically have metal piping. Pricing varies based on the type of piping and how much pipe is being replaced.
Sewer Line Installation
If your sewer line is relatively new, and you are experiencing problems it is most likely that the line was installed incorrectly. Sewer lines are usually 10 feet below the ground, so replacing them requires knowledge, skill, and patience. One cannot just dig up the ground and replace the piping. Some homes have underground electrical wires that are very dangerous. John Nugent & Sons are your go-to plumbers in Northern Virginia. You will feel confident knowing that your sewer line will be repaired properly and in a timely fashion. Call today, at 703-291-1926!
