Knowing When to Repair vs. Replace Sewer Lines 

Determining whether to repair or replace your sewer line is a crucial decision that can significantly impact the function of your home's plumbing system and your finances. Sewer line issues can range from minor blockages to major breaks, and understanding the extent of the damage is the key to making an informed choice. 

Considerations to help you decide when it might be more appropriate to repair versus replace your sewer line include the following:

  1. Age of the sewer line: If your system is nearing the end of its expected lifespan (50+ years), it’s best to have it replaced before it fails.
  2. Extent of damage: Minor issues – such as small clogs – can easily be repaired. However, extensive damage, severe corrosion, or multiple broken sections often indicate that replacement is the better option.
  3. Cost comparison: If the cost of repairs is steep, replacement may be more cost-effective long term. This is especially true if you have paid for multiple repairs in recent years. 
  4. Frequency of repairs: Occasional clogs or issues might not warrant a full replacement; however, if you’re frequently calling professionals for repairs, your sewer line might be failing.

Our plumbers at Bueno Plumbing are available to inspect your sewer line, assess its overall condition, and explain your options. We are committed to taking care of your plumbing system by providing high-quality solutions to your sewer line problems.

How Long Do Sewer Lines Typically Last?

Sewer lines often last between 50 and 100 years, depending on the materials they are made of. Some of the most common materials used for sewer lines include clay pipes (50 – 60 years), cast iron pipes (75 – 100 years), and PVC pipes (100+ years). While these materials have typical lifespans, the actual longevity of a sewer line can vary greatly depending on installation quality, environmental conditions, tree root intrusion, chemical exposure, and quality of maintenance. To maximize the performance, efficiency, and longevity of your sewer line, we recommend scheduling regular plumbing maintenance appointments.
