Proudly Serving Sterling, Reston, Alexandria & Northern Virginia
One of the messiest plumbing situations you could imagine involves your sewer line splitting or backing up to the point that its contents are spilling into your living space. Not only is it sickening to see and smell, but there are health factors that need to be considered. Having access to a trustworthy plumber in these instances is crucial, as it will keep you far away from the mess and get your living space back to where it needs to be in no time.
The Dangers of a Broken Sewer Line
A broken sewer line isn’t just messy and gross, it can also create a potentially dangerous situation for people living in the house. If sewage is backing up into your home, there is the physical risk of slipping and getting injured if you’re in the vicinity. You’ll also have to deal with sewer gases that may cause nausea and sickness. If sewage is left inside your home for any length of time, it will attract even more bacteria and cause health issues.

If you act quickly, you may be able to head off the problem before it becomes serious.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you’re having problems with your plumbing, you might need pipelining. The length of this process depends on the amount of piping you need to line. As a general rule, pipelining takes a few hours. The plumber inserts a liner from an access point and applies a new coating of material to the pipe. As a result, your pipe no longer leaks.
Because pipelining is so fast, it’s often a preferred way to repair a burst pipe. But it’s worth mentioning that pipelining isn’t the answer for everyone. Depending on the size of the damage, you may not be able to have a pipelining. In some cases, the only repair is a complete replacement. Of course, the best way to determine whether or not pipelining is an option is to speak to a plumber. They can look at your plumbing with a video inspection and determine the extent of the damage. Then, a plumber can give you advice on the best way to proceed.

Generally, a sewer line replacement takes between one and three days. It’s impossible to say how long your replacement will take because there are several factors that affect the timeline. If you have an issue in an area that’s difficult to access or under concrete, your repair could take longer. But an easy-to-access replacement may not take long at all. There’s also the issue of the size of the pipe. If you only need to replace a small section of pipe, you may have a quick repair. On the other hand, you could have several damaged sections of pipe. In this case, a replacement could take days.
The best way to find out how long your sewer replacement will take is to talk to a plumber. They can inspect the damage and determine the amount of time it would take to complete the replacement. At times, they may be able to avoid a replacement and do pipelining instead.
