Why is a second opinion important for a sewer line replacement?Plumbing What to expect

A sewer line replacement can be extremely costly. When you find yourself with a clog in your home it is likely caused by a belly in the line,  roots, bad glue joints, burrs from a cut pipe, no fall in the line, or foreign objects in pipe- for more information on these causes click HERE

A true professional will cable a stoppage first. Then run a sewer camera down the line to be sure the cause has been removed. If the camera shows obvious damage to the pipe a replacement is advised. If there is visible buildup causing the blockage a jetting machine should then be used to clear all debris stuck to the inside of the pipe to ensure there is no additional issues. A second camera should then be put down the line to be sure the problem has been fully taken care of.


A second opinion is crucial if you encounter the following:

  • I didn't like the guy that came to my house
  • I felt the price was too high
  • The technician didn't seem knowledgeable
  • I had a personality clash with the salesman

Always go with your gut. If it doesn't feel right it might not be!

With a sewer line issue you should always ask for time stamped video and always ask to see camera footage live. This is important because someone without integrity could attempt to show you footage of a different persons drain lines. If you are watching live as they go down your pipes there is no denying the footage is real.
