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.

    Houston Sewer Repair Services by Wedgeworth Plumbing

    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.

    Erica scheduled my appointment the same day I called. She also called me 20 minutes before the crew was to arrive at my house which was very helpful. Shawn and Austin were professional, courteous, knowledgeable, tidy, and efficient. They changed out my two gas hot water heaters. One was really corroded and they had to use 4 different methods to fully drain it out because there was so much build up clogging the drainage valve. I especially appreciated that Shawn took extra time to explain everything in detail so that I could avoid this problem in the future. I'm very satisfied with the customer service and workmanship. Would definitely recommend them!read more

    Wedgeworth installed a Whole House Water Filtration system today. They had to run water lines along my house and did a wonderful job. Dee was so helpful and friendly! He and his partner worked into the night without complaint. Will definitely call them again for any other plumbing needs!read more

    Wedgeworth was recommended to us by a friend, and I continue to go to them. Their prices are usually a little higher, but they will actually fix your plumbing correctly. Our house is over 100 years old and has had bad plumbing done to it over the years, so if they’ll do it right, we’ll keep calling them.read more

    Excellent Service, just more expensive for the convenience of quick turn around.




    Review of Wedgeworth Plumbing

    I have always had amazing experiences with Wedgeworth Plumbing. Their plumbers are always amazing and their service always is as well. Just know that you are paying a premium for the convenience of how quickly they can come out to you vs buying what you need from like Lowe’s, paying for installation, and getting that scheduled.

    Review of Wedgeworth Plumbing

    TJ and his crew diligently installed my water heater. It was 1000° in my attic, but they never complained, and they worked all day long. TJ has a wonderful attitude, it’s very customer focused, and I couldn’t be more what they did.
