In many ways, a sewer line to your home is no different than any another length of pipe. In this case, it takes wastewater from the drain lines of your home into the local municipal sewer system. It’s usually larger than other pipes on your property and buried underground, but beyond that, it’s essentially another length of pipe. It still develops leaks, clogs, and corrosion, and it still required a trained technician to repair.
But fixing a problem with your sewer line presents a number of challenges that you wouldn’t find with other lengths of pipe in your home. That’s why you should always contact a service that specializes in sewer repair instead of one that deals with indoor pipes exclusively. Sewer repair services offer specialized options that can address a number of specific problems. A brief list of some of the more important ones follow.
