Like most people, you probably have other things to worry about other than your sewer line. Yet, a problem with sewer pipes can become severe enough to warrant your attention and be reason enough to call a plumber in Kent, WA from Bob Oates Sewer & Rooter. Below, we focus on times when it's best to consider sewer line replacement if you have sewer-related problems.

When You Require Frequent Repairs

With many situations, it's entirely possible to fully restore a sewer line with sewer pipe line repair in Kent, WA. That said, replacement is worth considering if you are increasingly needing frequent repairs or dealing with clogs, backups, and other troublesome issues that keep coming back.

When You Sustain Widespread Damage

One of the ways to decide whether or not to repair or replace sewer line in Kent, WA is to see what results are from an initial inspection. We do this with a minimally invasive sewer camera inspection done through an existing access point. If results show damage to your sewer line is widespread or that it has collapsed, a replacement will likely be more cost-effective.

When Your Sewer Line Is Old

Sewer line replacement in Kent, WA can also be a smart, long-term investment if you have an older sewer line. This is more likely to be true if you have sewer pipes made from cast iron or similar material that tends to corrode over many decades. Also, older sewer systems are more likely to be affected by damage from invasive tree roots, ground shifting, or an assortment of cracks and fractures.
