What is a Sewer Line?

A sewer line is what connects your home to the sewer system. Although it may link up to a municipal service, it is generally considered the homeowner’s legal responsibility if it is located underneath the home.

What is a Sewer Line Installation?

Sewer lines often have to be installed when a new house is built, but that's not the only time that you will encounter this kind of installation. The other most common time that a sewer line installation will be required is when a house outgrows its sewer line’s lifespan. The average lifespan of a sewer line is about 50 years.

What is a Sewer Line Inspection?

The most accurate kind of sewer line inspection takes place through camera technology. A camera sewer line inspection works by using a special waterproof camera that is operated by a plumbing technician. The plumbing technician will be able to use the camera's findings to perform a visual inspection of your sewer line without having to excavate.

This special camera features a flexible rod that has the ability to reach deep into your sewer line. This means that your plumbing technician will be able to make instant observations and come up with a maintenance or repair plan that works for your particular situation right on the spot.

Why Do Sewer Lines Need Repairs?

Just like any kind of home infrastructure, sewer lines can feel the brunt of wear and tear. Old age, as we mentioned above, is the most common cause of sewer line failure, though it is far from the only one. Other factors that can damage your sewer line include clogs and tree roots. You can always watch for telltale signs of sewer line issues such as strange gurgling noises and mysterious leaks, but there is no match for a professional inspection. Get in touch with us today to see how we can help you ensure that your sewer line is in good working order.

Trusted Plumbing & Drainage Company



  • I called Andrew for a clogged kitchen sink, previously it was unclogged by a family handyman, but the problem still existed. Andrew from LUX was able to respond, schedule, and repair my sink in a quick and straightforward way. Pricing was honest and fair. He took the time to explain thoroughly of what the issue was. And he gave me precautionary measures to maintain the sinks so this clog would not happen again!

  • Andrew is very knowledgeable! His prices are fair and his service is by far the best experience I've had vs all the service technicians from electricians to roofer even other major plumbing firms. He is quick to diagnose the issue precisely and completes the job very effectively. His phone number is now saved into my contacts for future use.
