Frequently Asked Questions

Can Radiant replace a sewer pipe under a house?

Yes, Radiant Plumbing and Air is equipped to replace a sewer pipe under a house. Our team of experienced professionals specializes in sewer line services, including sewer line repairs and replacements. We use state-of-the-art technology and expert knowledge to complete the job efficiently with minimal disruption to your property. Common reasons for sewer line repair or replacement include repeated sewer stoppages, broken, cracked, or collapsed sewer lines, frozen pipes due to weather changes, deterioration, pipe corrosion, shifting or settling of soil, main sewer line clogs, or tree root damage. If you’re experiencing any of these sewer line problems, don’t hesitate to contact us immediately. We offer comprehensive video sewer line inspections and estimates for repair or replacement services tailored to your home’s needs.

The cost of digging up and replacing a sewer line can vary significantly, depending on various factors. Factors like the length and depth of the sewer line, accessibility to the site, all play a role in determining the final cost. On average, homeowners may budget as little as $3,000 for a small spot repair. However, complete replacement and complex projects or additional considerations like landscaping or pavement can drive costs even higher. For a precise estimate tailored to your specific situation, contact Radiant Plumbing and Air today. Our experienced team will provide you with an accurate assessment of your sewer line replacement costs, ensuring transparency and peace of mind.

In general, sewer lines typically last anywhere from 50 to 100 years before requiring replacement. However, the lifespan of sewer lines can vary based on factors such as the material used and maintenance practices. Cast iron pipes may endure for 50 to 75 years, clay pipes for around 50 to 60 years, PVC pipes for 25 to 40 years or more, and Orangeburg pipes for about 30 to 50 years. Regular maintenance can prolong their longevity, but certain conditions may accelerate wear and deterioration.

If you’re experiencing frequent clogs and drainage issues, there may be hidden underground problems. The cost of repeated sewer cleaning can accumulate, making replacement a cost-effective solution in the long run. Radiant Plumbing and Air offers professional video inspections to assess the need for repair or replacement and can provide estimates, along with financing options if needed. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us for a thorough evaluation of your sewer lines.

Recognizing the signs that your sewer line may require replacement is crucial for early intervention and cost-effective solutions. Keep an eye out for frequent blockages, sewage backups, persistent foul odors, slow drains, lush green patches in your yard, foundation cracks, rodent or insect infestations, and visible sewer line damage. If any of these symptoms appear, call Radiant Plumbing and Air immediately. Timely detection enables targeted and efficient repairs, preventing further damage. Consult with an experienced plumber to assess the extent of the issue and determine whether sewer line replacement is necessary. Don’t ignore strange smells or sounds from your sewer line, as they can indicate a need for sewer line repair. Addressing these problems promptly is crucial to avoid sewage backups and maintain your home’s plumbing system. Trust Radiant Plumbing and Air for reliable solutions to your sewer line concerns.
