Reliable Sewer Line Replacement in Hagerstown, MD & VA

Recognizing When Your Sewer Line Needs Replacing

Your main sewer line is like the lifeline of your plumbing system. Because all of your pipes, drains, and fixtures are connected to it, an issue with your sewer line can be detrimental to your entire system. Failure to recognize an issue and replace your sewer line promptly can wind up costing you thousands more in repairs over the long-term. Griffith Plumbing specializes in sewer line replacement for Hagerstown and surrounding areas in Maryland and Virginia. Sewer line repairs should be dealt with immediately before they create backflow issues, water leaks, or flooding on your residential or commercial property. Sometimes a sewer line replacement is necessary instead of a repair. Knowing when to replace or repair your sewer pipes is not something the average home or business owner is knowledgeable about, but you can always rely on our plumbing expertise. Call Griffith Plumbing for an evaluation, and we’ll ensure everything’s alright with your sewer lines!

Heed the Warning Signs for Sewer Line Replacement

If you’ve noticed sluggish drains, inconsistent water levels, leaky pipes, higher water bills, sinkholes in your foundation, or a foul smell around your property, it could be time for a sewer line replacement. It’s not uncommon for sewage backups to occur in your basement, crawlspace, or even underneath your landscaping. Take a close look at your yard. If you notice a patch of greener grass or a pool of standing wastewater, this is not a good sign. Standing wastewater contains hazardous bacteria, funguses, parasites, and even viruses that can cause significant threats to your family’s health and well-being.

Also, be on the lookout for a sunken area of your yard. Shifts in the ground beneath your plumbing system can cause your sewer line to become bellied, trapping wastewater around it over time. Excess water from leaky pipes can also contribute to mold growth inside your home – take a look at your walls and ceilings. The earlier you detect a sewer line issue, the better off you’ll be health-wise, as well as financially. Repairing a minor problem is usually cheaper than doing a complete sewer line replacement, although you don’t always have a choice in the matter.

Efficient Sewer Line Repairs and Replacements in MD & VA

Whether you have corroded pipes or a blockage in your sewer line, Griffith Plumbing’s capable experts will pinpoint the source of your plumbing problem and recommend an efficient repair or replacement. While you may be tempted to attempt patching a sewer line problem yourself rather than calling in the experts for a professional repair or replacement, you should know that this is a temporary solution. Using an over-the-counter chemical drain cleaner or attempting to snake your pipes yourself may end up causing more damage to your system or repeated issues in the future. Call our professional plumbers any time, day or night, for a sewer line repair or replacement in your Maryland or Virginia home or business. We’ll get to the root of your issue, even if it’s tree roots growing into your main sewer line. You’d be surprised by how often we see that happen!

State-of-the-Art Sewer Line Cameras for Accurate Diagnosis

Sooner or later, your home or business is going to need a sewer line replacement. Older homes (those built before 1980) often had clay pipes installed because they were the most cost-effective plumbing choice at the time. However, clay pipes tend to crack and break apart easier than the PVC pipes preferred today. If it’s been a while since you’ve had your home’s pipes inspected, it may be time to call Griffith Plumbing for an inspection or preventative maintenance. Because most homeowner’s insurance policies don’t cover the cost of sewer line replacement, it’s usually left up to the homeowner. In the past, excavation was required to determine the cause of many sewer line issues. However, advancements in video technology have now made it possible to get a thorough and accurate diagnosis without digging up your property first. Griffith Plumbing uses state-of-the-art cameras to determine if you need a sewer line repair or replacement, saving you time and money, not to mention the property excavation hassles.
