5 Conditions That Require Sewer Repair

Technically sewer work is considered a repair when anything less than your entire house sewer line is replaced. Even if you replace 1/2 of your the run of pipe, it is still technically considered a sewer repair. With that said, there are a number of reasons you may be considering digging up your underground house sewer.

The 1st bit of good advice is to have a HD Sewer Camera Video inspectino performed. A camera inspection will make 100% sure there is a structural defect in your pipe system. The 2nd great benefit of a camera inspection is you’ll know what and where the defect is.


Root infiltration that cannot be cleared, or re-emerges routinely.


Dislodged or broken sections of your sewer run.


A grease stoppage that cannot be cleared, or reoccurs.


Constant backups and flooding after heavy rains or snow melts.


Your house sewer is improperly back-pitched.

Repairing different types of pipe materials and sizes of pipe

When doing a sewer repair frequently different types of materials, and sizes of pipe, must be connected together. Unlike inside plumbing, undergound plumbing has a limited list of approved fittings in NYC. By and large clamps and reducing gaskets are not permitted by NYC plumbing code. Typically extra heavy cast iron reducers and increasers are used to transition to different sized and types of sewer pipe.
