Sewer Replacement in Reading

Allow Us to Determine If It’s Time to Replace Your Sewer Line

What’s the most important part of your plumbing system? Any guesses? No? Well, it’s the sewer line. Unfortunately, though, this vital aspect of your plumbing is located underground, making it difficult to access and maintain.

When that mainline gets clogged or malfunctions, the rest of your home’s drain system won’t work either. But, because the sewer line is so hidden, you may not even know you have a problem with it. If a problem is left unattended to, and the line gets to be in bad enough condition, you may end up needing a replacement.

At Essig Plumbing & Heating, we try and avoid the replacement option at all costs because there is some excavation involved, but sometimes, we don’t have a choice. Don’t worry, though. We always make the process as easy for you as possible, and will be there for you all the way!

About Sewer Line Replacement

The sewer replacement team at Essig has over 80 years of experience performing this type of work, and have learned quite a few things along the way. One of those things is how we know for sure when it’s time for a replacement. If you find that your sewer line backs up more than once a year, it would be worth the time and money to have the entire thing replaced.

As your trusted plumbers in Reading, you can expect the following from our services:

  • We will always use every method of repair we can first before even thinking about a replacement.
  • If we decide that our repair efforts are not enough and that your line is too far gone, we will suggest a replacement. At that point, the only other option you have is living with a broken line and—trust us—you don’t want that.
  • Once you approve the replacement job, we will have the ability to do it right on the spot. And, after we’re done, we’ll help you clean up the mess as best we can because we don’t want to leave all that burden for you.

Vent Stack Repair or Replacement

Another vital piece of your plumbing system is the vent stack that removes sewage from your home, releases sewer gas, and regulates air pressure in the waste system pipes.

Essentially, a vent stack is used to remove waste from a home or building and route it to the sewer. It sounds like a pretty hefty job, but believe it or not, they don’t require all that much maintenance. But, like anything else, at some point, they can become faulty and need a repair or a replacement. You’ll know when that time has come, based on the distinct sewer odor you’ll smell throughout your home.

Does Your Vent Stack Need to be Repaired?

There’s a very simple way to determine if your vent stack needs repair: if your drains are gurgling or emitting sewer gas odors. Even though the diagnosis is easy, the repair process is not, so don’t go attempting it yourself!

Whether you need a vent stack repaired or a sewer line replaced, we're here to help. Call us today at (610) 557-3302 or fill out our contact form for more information on sewer replacement in Reading.
