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.

    Great service! Low water pressure in the shower was an easy fix. Damondrick knew where to look and solved the problem quickly. No telling me it was the brand and bad valve and big money to replace it! Wedgeworth will be my go-to plumbing service moving forward for sure! Thanks for providing prompt, honest and obviously knowledgeable service.read more

    Review of Wedgeworth Plumbing

    Plumbers arrived on time and closely assessed my issue. I had already dug up the area around the leaking water pipe so access was easy for the plumbers to determine the issue. The job for repairing the leak went forth in good time and is of good quality. I was charged $368 dollars to repair a leak that was easy to repair and required very little additional digging to repair. I think this charge is excessive and will ask for a quote over the phone before I commit next time. Overall I would use these guys again with a better understanding of cost prior to committing.


    Excellent service

    Review of Wedgeworth Plumbing

    I had an awful smell in my downstairs bathroom. I called one company and gave me an estimate to smoke test and remove toilet putting a new wax seal $971. Thank goodness that I read positive reviews for Wedgeworth Plumbing. They sent a gentleman named Damondrick Bennett today. He was professional and polite. After inspecting the toilet, he ran hot water and poured bleach in my lavatory. Repeated that several times and no more awful smell. A rubber accordion pipe was used instead of a straight pipe. It was retaining scum built up. No more smell and charged me $49. So happy with this company. They saved me a lot of money.
