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.

I am incredibly impressed by the very high level of customer service and professional expertise at Wedgeworth Plumbing! The office staff (Denise) was extraordinarily helpful and scheduled service within 24 hours of my call. The highly experienced and professional journeyman plumber they sent, Damondrick, went well above and beyond the level of care and service expected. A real gem of a guy! We've done a lot of renovation work over the years and I know great plumbers are hard to find. Based on my recent experience, I am truly relieved to know that there is a nearby plumber that I can trust. Thank you, Wedgeworth Plumbing!!!

Robert - Houston, TX
Had a large job following a burst pipe that destroyed pretty much both bathrooms. Got several estimates, of which Wedgeworth was very competitive and thorough (some were ridiculously high - always get multiple estimates!). This was thousands of dollars of work that had to be done in stages in cooperation with the overall contractor. Of all the moving parts of this rebuild, Wedgeworth was the most reliable and most accommodating. In short, they did a great job at a good price, and did it correctly and did it when it needed to be done. Now, at the end there were some issues with leaks after the final install of faucets, but Wedgeworth came out promptly three days in a row to take care of them, including a Saturday - so they covered their work without any trouble; even gave a follow up call a week later to make sure all was well. They are my go-to plumbers now, without question. Special shout out to Damondrick - great service, no run around, no up sell, no surprises, just took care of his end professionally and well.

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.
