What is a sewer line and why do they need to be repaired?
A sewer line is a pipe that connects the property to a public sewer and is used for sewage disposal. The purpose of repairing or replacing a sewer line is to prevent clogs, overflows, and other issues from occurring in the plumbing system of your property.
The reason why it must be repaired or replaced is because the sewer lines are usually made of clay or cast iron. With time, these materials will erode and crack which may lead to leakage or clogs in your property's plumbing system which may lead to water damage and other issues.
How often should I have my sewer lines inspected?
