Sewer Line Installation and Repair

The sewer line, which channels all the waste from toilets, sinks, and showers away from the home and toward the city’s sewage system, is the unsung hero of your home’s plumbing system.

Home Sewer Line Installation
When you are buying a new home, the last thing on your mind is probably the installation of the main sewer line, but it should probably top the list of priorities. Fortunately, when you bring in the plumbing specialists at Benjamin Franklin Plumbing, you can check “sewer line” off of your list with confidence, knowing that professionals have correctly installed your sewer main.
Our technicians are highly-knowledgeable about what causes sewer line issues, and they work to prevent future issues by choosing the correct location for the line and providing useful sewer line management advice to homeowners – and the first piece of advice is free! Below we have listed a few common causes of sewer line problems to keep you on your guard after your line installation:
- Tree Roots
We highly discourage the installation of the main sewer line near any trees, or for homeowners to plant trees near the sewer line. Roots spread far underground, frequently competing with other tree roots for nutrients and water. They are strong enough to eventually burst through the sewer line, causing massive amounts of damage.
- Temperature Fluctuations
Sudden temperature changes can cause the ground to shift and disconnect or damage the sewer line.
- Line Corrosion
Though chemical cleaners are powerful and perform their job well, it is a much better idea to avoid these at all costs, regardless of how clogged your drain is. The chemicals do their job so well that they may begin to corrode your pipes and your sewer line.
