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.

Damon’s Rick did a great job of identifying the problem and explaining that my leak is in the sprinkler system
Becki - Houston, TX
Dee was honest with me about what needed to be repaired. He was so helpful with explaining that my tub drain had all the signs of a functioning drain. Who knew that vortex and gurgling actually had explanations. I loved it. Prices are fair relatively speaking. The estimate was FREE ! ! They came out on a holiday and called to keep me updated on arrival time and on being 15 minutes later than expected. I felt helped and informed all throughout the appointment. I will give them a 4 stars only because I wish their estimate was a line item, separating labor from cost of products. It’s the best way to compare quotes. That being said Dee guided me through choices and he is coming back Thursday to install a garbage disposal that I will purchase. I’m tired of businesses not calling back, with customer service that does nothing to help when things don’t work as expected. I am using Wedgwood Plumbing because I have confidence in truely honest plumbers. So refreshing to trust the workers that enter our homes.

I called Wedgeworth Plumbing after reading the many good reviews on Yelp. They were also located near my home and that was a plus. I was given an appointment the same day I called which I appreciated. Damondrick and crew arrived on time , assessed the problem, told me what it would take to fix it, and got it done. They did an excellent job.

Damondrick was very kind and answered all our questions. My mom was home when the work was done and said the crew doing the work was professional and clean. Best of all...my husband was so happy when he came home and the yard looked great where the crew had dug. Thank you for the fast and efficient service.

5 star experience!
Carlos - Houston, TX
The plumber gave very useful advice and information about my water heaters that put me at ease. He really listened to my worries about cost, safety, value and quality. I consulted other plumbing services and Wedgeworth Plumbing gave the most practical and sensible advice. To be fair, the other plumbing services did an okay job and was generous with their time, but their consultation focused very little on answering my concerns and more on convincing me to go with the pricier options. In the end, I just felt more comfortable with Wedgeworth - he made me feel like I was talking to a friend who just happens to be an expert plumber. That type of experience is rare to come by in the service and repair industry. Wedgeworth Plumbing is the one you want!

Called Wedgeworth for service call, good communications with the office, arrived on time, found the problem, came up with solution and performed the work. Arrived at my house at 3:30 PM and by 7:00 PM I had a new hot water heater installed in the attic. No hesitation to work overtime to get the job done. Damondrick and TJ did a great job, will request them back on any future work.
