Many variables can affect the time it takes to replace a sewer line. As the preferred contractor for sewer repair in Seattle, WA, Bob Oates Sewer & Rooter is well-versed in sewer pipe services, what they entail, and how much time is needed to complete each project. One of the questions that we often get asked is how long the sewer repair process takes.

Since no sewer pipe line repair project is exactly alike, there’s no definitive answer to the above-mentioned question. In our case, most of our repairs only take less than a day. We make it a point to explain the factors that can affect the time it takes for our team to perform the repairs.

Pipe Cleaning

Our sewer repair services are most effective when done in conjunction with our pipe cleaning services. The cleaning process adds about an hour to the project duration, but we are better able to perform the repairs when the interior of the damaged pipes is free from any obstruction that can affect the efficacy of the restoration process.

Size of the Pipe

When we need to repair or replace sewer line, we employ trenchless solutions. This entails measuring out the pipe length and diameter so that we could get the ratio of the epoxy mixture and pipe liner right. Needless to say, the larger the damaged area of the pipe is, the longer we’ll take to measure and mix.

Curing Time

Granted that trenchless sewer line replacement and repairs can be done in sections, waiting until the epoxy lining cures or hardens can take the longest out of all the pipe restoration steps. But if nothing goes wrong, which we make sure of, then you should be able to have your pipes up and running again by the end of the work day.

Bob Oates Sewer & Rooter will see to it that the sewer repair process is as hassle-free for you as possible. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.
