When to Repair a Sewer Line

These signs may indicate that there are sewer problems that need to be checked. Make it a point to call in professionals to inspect the problem and determine whether your line needs a sewer repair.

When to Replace a Sewer Line

Persistent drain issues may be indicative of an underlying sewer problem. There comes a point when you cannot solve your drain problems with simple drain cleaning or maintenance procedures. It is then that you will need a sewer replacement by professionals.
