Am I or the City Responsible for the Sewer Line from My Home?

This is a question that homeowners often ask when it comes to taking care of the sewer pipe that carries away waste from their drains and out to the municipal sewer system. If something goes wrong with this pipe, such as a break or blockage, is it the responsibility of the utility company or the homeowner to have the pipe repaired or replaced?

The answer is: the homeowner. From the point where the sewer line exits the home to where it crosses under the property line is the responsibility of the homeowner. However, this isn’t as huge a burden as it sounds.

Professional Sewer Line Repairs and Replacements

Although repair and replacement work for your home’s sewer line may fall to you, that doesn’t mean that you have to do the work! In fact, unless you’re a professional plumber with the right equipment, there isn’t any way for you to do these jobs. You simply have to leave it in the hands (and tools) of licensed plumbers with the experience and training for sewer line work. You may be surprised at how smoothly the work can go to repair or replace a sewer line.

Trenchless Sewer Line Replacement and Repairs

One of the reasons that you should contact us when you have a sewer line repair/replacement job is that we use trenchless technology, and that’s not something you’ll find at every plumbing contractor.

What does trenchless technology mean? It’s a way to repair or replace a sewer line without requiring excavation equipment that digs open a large trench across the property from the house all the way to the sidewalk. Our plumbers use equipment that does the work laterally, moving in from the two ends of the pipe with pipe reliners that seal up leaks, or if necessary, expand to replace the entire pipe. It takes only a fraction of the time compared to standard excavation techniques, and it leaves the property looking as good as it did before.
