The Process of Preparing for Sewer Repairs & Replacements
Before starting any work with sewers, professional plumbers must conduct a thorough inspection. While sewers may be showing signs of trouble, ranging from backup to unpleasant odors, it is not always as clear whether a full replacement or a minor repair is needed. Even visibly leaking waste does not necessarily require a full line replacement. This is where a detailed inspection is critical. A professional plumber will examine the sewer line and identify the location and cause of the problem. Then, based on the inspection, the plumber will assess the severity of the damage and recommend the appropriate repair method.
If sewers are more than 50 years old, it's a good idea to have them inspected by a professional plumber for a potential replacement. Even if they are not showing any signs of damage, older sewers may be more susceptible to problems and could benefit from replacement.
Examples of warning signals that a sewer should be replaced include:
- Frequent blockages
- Smells of waste or sulfur
- Slow drains
- Continual toilet clogs
- Mold or mildew caused by leaking sewage

Once experts have discovered the exact issue in the line, as well as pinpointed its location, it is time to start the repair process. First of all, professionals must carefully make an entry point to access the line and fix it. If the damage is severe, the plumber may need to excavate the area around the sewer line to access the damaged section. The individual repair method will depend on the type and severity of the damage. One of the most common repair methods includes pipe relining. This method that involves inserting a resin liner into the damaged pipe and curing it with heat or UV light. Once cured, the liner creates a new, seamless pipe within the old pipe, which eliminates the need for excavation.
Another common method is that of spot repair, which involves fixing small, damaged areas in the sewer line with a patch, rather than replacing the entire section of the pipe. After the repair is complete, the plumber will restore the excavated area, including backfilling and landscaping. Trust our techs at Ak Plumbing to always return your home to its original condition.
