Common Causes of Pipe Damage

We encounter many causes of damage that require prompt sewer line repairs. Some of the most common causes of damage we see include:

  • Tree root infiltration: Over time, tree roots can get into pipes via loose joints, cracks, and similar openings. As the roots grow, they can further damage the pipe and block water flow.
  • Shifting soils: Soil can rise, fall, and erode around underground pipes. As the soil shifts, it can cause the pipes to move out of position, bend, crack, or break.
  • Chemicals: Overusing over-the-counter drain cleaners can introduce considerable amounts of corrosive chemicals into your sewer line. Over time, these chemicals can corrode the pipes.
  • Clogs: Clogs can expedite corrosion and cause water pressure to drop. As the clog grows, it can crack or burst the pipe.
  • Age: Sewer line pipes can be made of PVC, ABS, cast iron, galvanized steel, concrete, and more. While durable, these materials aren’t immune to the passage of time. Over time, the materials will slowly degrade until they require replacement.  
  • Construction or landscaping works: Any heavy equipment moving over the landscape can crush pipes deep below the surface. This often occurs when those pipes are made of PVC. 

Sewer Line Installation

At Timothy Off, we understand the importance of proper sewer line installation, replacement, repair, and maintenance. Our experts adhere to the appropriate standards and procedures to ensure your home’s plumbing and sewer line systems operate efficiently. You can count on us.

A poorly installed sewer line can result in drain clogging and sewage backup. Some signs you might have a drain problem include strange gurgling noises or unusually high water bills.

Directional Drilling & Horizontal Boring

Timothy Off uses trenchless methods for underground sewer lines and pipe installation. Horizontal directional drilling minimizes any impact on your yard or property.

Other traditional sewer line installation methods require digging a trench, but directional drilling is an innovative and less invasive approach. Horizontal boring machines are used to drill holes horizontally to create an underground tunnel.

Our skilled and trained professionals will use advanced technology to help a drill head guide the drilling pipe. This is a great way to ensure all measurements are accurate, resulting in a professional underground installation without leaving a mess for you to clean up.

How To Maintain Your Drain & Sewer Line System

Maintenance is key to ensuring your drain and sewer lines work efficiently for many years.

At Timothy Off, we offer descaling maintenance to remove buildup of residue and grime, clear blockages, and support ideal equipment efficiency and performance.

Be proactive — don’t wait for a problem to arise with your drain or sewer line. Schedule routine plumbing and sewer line maintenance to reduce the risk of major problems like clogs and sewage backup.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long will a sewer line last?

The longevity of a sewer line depends on many factors. The type of material, presence and proximity of trees, soil conditions, and proper installation all influence how long the line will last.

If everything lines up, cast iron and cement pipes can last up to 100 years, while PVC pipes can last over 100 years.

Do homeowners insurance policies cover sewer line repairs?

It depends. In general, most homeowners policies exclude coverage for sewer lines. However, adding a sewer and drain endorsement to your policy is possible. This will cover deterioration or decay, excavation and backfill, pipe replacement/repair, and restoration of landscaping.

Who is responsible for repairing my sewer line?

As a general rule, if it’s under your property, it’s your responsibility. However, there are exceptions. Damaged sections within easements or sections damaged by municipal construction crews can be the responsibility of the HOA or city.

Damage caused by tree removal companies, construction crews, etc., working on your property typically falls to the entity responsible for damaging the pipes. 

How long does it take to replace a damaged sewer line?

It depends on multiple factors, including weather conditions, the extent of the damage, accessibility to the damaged pipes, and soil conditions.

Generally, it takes one to three days to perform residential sewer line replacements in West Chester. Before starting work, our technicians will perform a comprehensive site analysis and provide a reliable time estimate for the required work.

What are the signs that I need sewer line repair or replacement?

Always pay attention to backups. Backups into one drain indicate a localized problem, while backups into multiple drains or appliances indicate a problem with the sewer line.

You should also listen for gurgling noises from drains, sinks, and toilets, as well as persistent sewage odors. In many cases, you may notice lush spots on the lawn or increasingly frequent sewage backups that plunging doesn’t resolve.
