Sewer repair and replacement
Posted on Oct.11, 2010 by Chase Thompson

If the main sewer line that leaves your house is backed up and cannot be cleared you may need your system to be inspected. A sewer camera can often display the issues with a drain line that is several feet under ground.

One of the frequent reasons that we see homes in Kansas City with bad sewer lines is because of root invasion from large trees. Drain cleaning technicians often deal with roots in a sewer and can remove some of these roots with their main sewer machine. If the tree gets too big it can disrupt the slope for a plumbing line and cause what is referred to as a belly in the line.

KC Plumber Pro can help you find out if the line can be repaired or if it needs to be replaced.  We can handle the excavation of the dirt as well as the installation of new sewer lines as well as new water lines. Replacing the water service sometimes involves adding a new meter outside the house. In many older homes the meter was located on the inside of the house. Now it is more common for the meter to be relocated in the front yard. Once the new meter has been set into the yard the utility company is responsible for everything on their side of the meter.
