Sewer Pipe near road construction site

Are you experiencing problems with your sewer line? Damaged sewer pipes can be a big hassle, and they can become an even bigger inconvenience when left unattended. One of the worst things that could happen is that a sewer issue gets bad enough that sewage finds its way back into your property due to heavy clogging, at which point it becomes apparent that sewer repair services are sorely needed.

Get to know what to expect when you request sewer restoration services from Bob Oates Sewer & Rooter, the leading expert in sewer repair in Seattle, WA.

Repair vs. Replacement

If there are gurgling noises every time you use a sink, water draining slowly, frequent clogging, or patches of soggy patches on your lawn, it’s apparent that there are sewer issues going on. Some of the causes of a failed sewage line can include old pipes, tree roots in the pipes, mold clogs, ordered clay, cracking or even an uneven slope of the pipe. A combination of all these factors can be detrimental. What’s challenging, however, is to determine whether to replace sewer line or to settle for sewer repairs.

The best way to know which sewer service would be more beneficial is to get in touch with the pros like our team here at Bob Oates Sewer & Rooter.

Project Completion Timeline for Sewer Services

Property owners will naturally be concerned about the duration of the sewer pipe line repair or replacement procedure. Most sewer repairs done on residential properties can be done in less than a day. Sewer pipes on commercial establishments, on the other hand, can take a full day to be attended to due to the typically more complex pipe network. Although this will depend on some factors such as clog location, pipe size, pipe material, repair method, and extent of the damage.

Of course, if the traditional dig-and-replace method is applied, it can take days or weeks. But if trenchless sewer line replacement is utilized, projects can ideally be completed in less than a day.

Some of the locations are congested and more difficult to reach than others, making the job take longer. If the pipes are too old or even made of outdated material, it can result in increased time spent. If the damage is too complicated, such as root interference or grease, pipe restoration can take longer.
