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:
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 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.

Of course, my plumbing problem was an emergency---water leaking from my bathroom down to the garage below. With a smile in her voice, Erica calmly let me know I would be the second call of the day. When DJ and Damondrick arrived, they politely assessed the problem, gave me their estimate, and assured me they could complete the repair. These two young men were POLITE, EFFICIENT, FRIENDLY, and PROFESSIONAL. On top of that, once they completed the big repair, I asked them to look at two outdoor faucets. One was not broken, but the second one needed something new. They offered to fix it at that very moment, and once they were finished, they would not add the charge to my bill. AMAZING CUSTOMER SERVICE! I am so happy that I found Wedgeworth Plumbing. They are my new favorite plumbing company! Their boss is a lucky guy!

Demondrick was professional, friendly and very helpful - not only quickly resolving the main problem for the service call but also providing helpful maintenance advice to save money on other key areas of concern in the house.

TJ and Damondrick did an outstanding job, very courteous and professional. They replaced kitchen faucet, fixed cold water shut off valve under kitchen sink, unstuck water main shut off valve, also found another leak in basket strainer which they fixed and replaced. All our plumbing is 1986 and so we will definitely use them again, they are that good. I highly recommend them, for they are the best plumbers in town.

“D” and J.T. Were very professional and did an outstanding job. They did not come in and right away tell me I need a new water heater. They found the issue, fixed it and told me they would stay and make sure the water heater would continue to work before leaving. They stay through 3 cycles of the water heater starting and heating water. Customer service was outstanding!!
