Home / Factors That Affect the Duration of the Pipe Replacement Process
Replacing a sewer pipe comes with certain challenges and constraints. Among them, the most common concern that most property owners is whether the pipe replacement process itself will take long. In most cases, the time we take to carry out sewer repair in Chico, CA ranges from one to three days. However, this can still vary.
Attaboy Plumbing offers a closer look at the leading factors that affect how long it will take to carry out a sewer pipe replacement.
1. PIPE ACCESSIBILITY
How fast our team can complete sewer repair services depends on the location of the pipes. The traffic surrounding the location of the plumbing system directly affects the time taken to replace it. If your pipe system can be accessed via your backyard, a replacement can be done between one to two days.
The sewer pipe installation or replacement will take longer when the system is in a location that has either human or motor vehicle traffic, or if the access point is not nearby.
2. SIZE OF PIPES
Smaller and shorter pipes often take a shorter time to replace because we have less material to work with. Most homes have 6” sewer, which is easy to replace and can take between half a day to one day. The case is different if you live in an apartment complex with an 8” to 10” sewer. In this case, more time will be required, approximately between two to three days.
3. SCOPE OF THE PROJECT
The scale of the project also impacts the duration of the replacement or installation. Bigger properties typically take longer to complete.
Working closely with a plumber in Chico, CA is one of the surest ways to know the estimated time it will take to replace your sewer pipe.
