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.

I had two other companies come to our home and we were told we had to replace the valve for the faucet, which would involve removing tile. Rex came and was confident and replaced our cartridge and fixed the shower for half the cost of replacing a valve. I highly recommend this company.read more

Review of Wedgeworth Plumbing

This was a frustrating project because of the unforeseen issues but Damondrick had a great attitude the entire time and stayed late on a Saturday night to make sure the job got done. It was important to get the water working at the kitchen sink tonight so I really appreciate his efforts and his positive attitude was very refreshing. He seems like a great guy and knows how to treat a customer. Thank you.

I recently had an issue with my tankless water heater system in my home. Sean and his team at WEDGEWORTH Plumbing were able to diagnose the problem quickly, give me options for a fix, and repaired the system promptly and professionally. There is no better choice for a plumber in the HOUSTON area other than WEDGEWORTH. They are second to none.

Our go to for plumbing




Review of Wedgeworth Plumbing

I live in an old house and the plumbing is a nightmare. We've used Wedgeworth numerous times and they do quality work. Damondrick in particular is personable, knowledgeable, and trustworthy. I have used Wedgeworth for quick fixes and larger piping issues, they're good with both. I would recommend Wedgeworth for all plumbing issues.


Great Service!




Review of Wedgeworth Plumbing

Amazing!




Review of Wedgeworth Plumbing

During this time of quarantine I have a clogged major pipe! What business will help? I called and within 45 minutes Rex was at my home. Observing “social distance” with professionalism, Rex was able to restore my home into a functioning oasis. Thank you so much for your help!


Slow sink, now fixed




Review of Wedgeworth Plumbing

Cannot complain. Office gave me an estimated time but later called saying they had a plumber available right away if it was convenient. Rex showed up, snaked my sink as asked, and done.


Very professional job....thank you

Professional, Clean, Courteous Plumber, Fast Response, Reasonable Cost




Review of Wedgeworth Plumbing

Wedgeworth dispatched a plumber, Damondrick, to our house within an hour to respond to a water pipe leak that was dripping onto the ceiling below the leak. Damondrick was a real gentleman while in our home and you can tell he was very focused on doing good job - which he did! We were so satisfied with the whole experience and are very happy the leak is was repaired quickly and without any hassles. By the way, Wedgeworth has helped us two other times and both of those experiences were positive also. Thanks guys for the help!
