Home / Frequently Asked Question on Sewer Repair
Attaboy Plumbing takes pride in being a trusted expert in sewer repair services in the area. Over the years, we have been asked many questions concerning sewer repair in Oroville, CA. Below are the most frequently asked questions alongside their answers.
1. HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO INSTALL A SEWER LINE?
Our plumbing company uses various lining installation methods based on the status of your sewer system. Air inversion can take us two days to repair, while the pull-in-place lining and point sewer repair services typically take a day.
2. HOW LONG CAN I EXPECT MY SEWER LINE TO LAST?
How long a sewer line will last depends on several aspects, including the quality of pipe used and proximity to trees. On average, a sewer line can last for 40-50 years or more, depending on its maintenance. If your sewer line has lasted for over 40 years, it may require a new sewer pipe replacement. Even more so if there are trees around your property, as you also need to look out for the possibility of tree root intrusions.
3. WHO ASSUMES THE RESPONSIBILITY TO REPAIR A SEWER LINE IF IT GETS DAMAGED?
In most municipalities, a sewer pipe repair is the responsibility of homeowners. In other words, you’re responsible for maintaining the sewer line connecting to the main sewer from your home. Keep in mind that repairs have to be carried out by professionals, and that you only need to facilitate the repair rather than perform it yourself.
4. CAN A HOMEOWNER’S INSURANCE COVER THE REPAIR OF MY SEWER LINE?
The majority of insurance policies typically don’t cover sewer pipe installation and repairs resulting from wear and tear. Be sure to check what your homeowner’s insurance covers before taking the policy.
5. WHAT ARE THE MAJOR CAUSES OF SEWER LINE DAMAGE?
The most prevalent cause of sewer damage, especially with homes constructed before the 1980s, is tree roots that intrude the joints of the sewer pipes. Other common causes are wear and tear, natural catastrophes, and accidental damage during excavations. Aspects such as improper installation and whether or not maintenance routines are in place can also factor into sewer line damage.
