Frequently Asked Questions

Several factors contribute to sewer line damage, resulting in the need for sewer repair or replacement services:

  • Clogs: Waste, sludge, grease, sediment, and inappropriately flushed items like baby wipes and paper towels will accumulate in the line.
  • Tree Roots: Tree roots grow in the direction of underground water. If a sewer line has a hole or crack, the roots may invade the pipe and create a severe obstruction.
  • Temperature Changes: Because the sewer pipe is underground, it is susceptible to damage from shifting soil due to temperature increases.
  • Age: Common sewer pipe materials like PVC plastic and clay will eventually break down due to wear and tear and require a replacement.
  • Bellied Piping: Sometimes, pipes develop a downward slope when the soil around the plumbing shifts unevenly. Waste will build up in the pipe’s curve, creating a blockage to no fault of anyone living in the house.

When you contact Jeffco Enterprises to handle a sewer line issue, we may determine during our thorough inspection and evaluation that repairing the pipe is not the best course of action to take. Instead, sewer replacement services may be necessary if the line is indefinitely compromised.

You may also notice several signs on your property that indicate when your sewer line is unserviceable, such as:

  • An intense scent of sewage indoors
  • Pooling water in the yard without an identifiable source
  • Slow draining fixtures, such as sink and bathtub drains


If you notice any of these issues, call our plumbing specialists immediately. Together, your quick action and our expertise can prevent significant damage to your home and reduce exposure to raw sewage.

On average, the cost of sewer replacement services is about $50 to $250 per foot. The type of pipe material you want to install for your new system will affect the price. For instance, plastic PVC is more cost-effective than cast iron lines.  

At Jeffco Enterprises, we understand that people seldom anticipate dealing with plumbing issues in their homes. Our team has excellent craftsmanship and years of industry knowledge. However, we keep our services at affordable rates.

A sewer replacement service can take about one to three days or more to complete in most cases. Factors that contribute to how much time we may need to do the job include:

  • Pipe size
  • Location of the pipe
  • Type of damage present


Depending on your plumbing situation and the extent of the damage, you may not need a total system replacement. Our experts will examine your property and plumbing before determining how long it will take to fix the sewer line.

Sewer replacement services are not something you should need often. Main sewer lines can last between 50 to 100 years. If your property has a broken pipe that requires replacement, you likely won’t need to replace it again.

There are two procedures available for sewer line replacement:

  • Traditional Line Replacement: This method requires plumbers to excavate an area to access the damaged section of the pipe.
  • Trenchless Sewer Line Replacement: Trenchless sewer repair takes less time because it requires no excavation. A video camera inspection identifies the damaged area so that the plumbers can restore the section from the inside out.
