When Should I Replace My Sewer Line?
A main line replacement can be a big investment, but it’s well worth avoiding serious problems that can develop over time. That said, it can be difficult to determine when you need a main line replacement versus simple repairs. Here are some ways to tell that your sewer line needs to be replaced:
- You want to renovate or sell your home.
- The sewer line was not originally installed properly.
- Tree or shrub roots are growing into the main line.
- The sewer line is heavily corroded or seriously damaged.
Your sewer line’s material can also impact its lifespan. Systems made from clay typically last between 50-60 years, while cast iron generally lasts around 75-100 years. PVC systems are very durable and can last over 100 years. However, if your sewer line is made of a material other than clay, cast iron, or PVC then it should be replaced as soon as possible. Some materials, such as lead or asbestos-cement (AC), are likely to fail and can pose health risks.
