Sewer Replacement

Houston Sewer Replacement Service

In Houston, TX, your sewer line is the drain piping system that connects your house’s main drain with the sewer system or your private septic tank. When installed, your main drain was watertight and the joints are impenetrable. Due to the way the pipe sections are joined or earth movements (earthquakes and earth settling) the joints can be compromised and roots from trees and bushes can find a way into the sewer system. Over time these roots or pipe movements can prevent proper water flow and your sewer backs up.

Wedgeworth Plumbing offers drain cleaning and sewer pipe replacement services. We can cut the roots that are growing in the pipes to allow the water to flow freely again. However, just like pruning a bush, the roots will grow back, often in greater size, strength and number than before. In Houston, there are several options to consider for this problem. We can simply cable the drain, treat the sewer line chemically with a product, which retards root growth, or replace the broken pipes.

Call Wedgeworth Plumbing today to have our sewer and drain experts evaluate your challenges.

    What causes Houston sewer line problems?

    There are many reasons your pipe could be damaged. While age is one of the most common factors, the following are some other reasons your line may need repairs:

    Damaged Pipes

    Many older pipes are made from cast iron or clay tile. Over time your cast iron pipes will suffer from metal fatigue and deteriorate. Clay tile pipes can break down from root infiltration and ground settling issues causing offsets and gaps in the pipe walls. Wedgeworth uses the most durable material, SDR 26, a plastic piping which meets or exceeds the latest plumbing code. With proper installation, this material will provide long lasting structural integrity requiring far fewer service calls.

    Tree Roots

    Tree roots are continuously searching for water sources, even if that source is a nearby sewer line. As roots grow, they may break through your sewer pipe walls and connections, which cause major issues if left unaddressed.

    While doing a spot repair or complete sewer line replacement is the most permanent solution to tree root pipe infiltration, a regularly scheduled preventative drain cleaning may prolong the life of your sewer. It is important to consult with one of our experienced plumbers to determine if it is time for a repair or replacement.

    Rex and his crew did a great job. They arrived when they promised and worked hard for the entire day to haul away two regular water heaters and install a tankless water heater. The new water heater works great.In contrast to my experience with other plumbers in the past, I didn't feel like they were trying to sell me anything that I didn't want. In fact, I was the one who actually asked about going tankless.I was very satisfied and will definitely use this company in the future for my plumbing needs.read more

I have been using Wedgeworth Plumbing for 4 years and have never been disappointed with the plumbers or the women in the office. This is why I will be using this company for all my Plumbing needs.read more

    When I discovered that we had a major leak with a fairly newly installed toilet, I was panicked thinking it would take days to have someone fix it, so I was thrilled that they responded within 2 hours of my call.

    Review of Wedgeworth Plumbing

    I’ve used Wedgeworth twice. I automatically know to call them when needing important work done. They replumbed & rebuilt my shower 5 yrs. ago. Recently I had them check my gas line’s integrity for safely installing a gas range. My mom’s complex used them for updating all their valves because they’re bonded & certified. Shaun/owner is learned & very knowledgeable. His employees check in with him to ask about any concerns they have. They’re very professional & explains their recommendations. I highly recommend them!

    Review of Wedgeworth Plumbing

    Very patient with a problem caused by a large plumbing company who had installed a filter on our tankless water heater. The large company stripped the filter of any identifying serial numbers so that we would be forced to use them when the filter needed to be replaced. Donny and Christopher sought out what was needed.

    Job well done by TJ who is a professional with a great attitude.
