Sewer and water pipes fixed on a bricks Scottsdale, AZ

A damaged sewer line can cause a lot of problems for your home, so you’ll want to fix it as quickly as possible. However, you might wonder whether you need sewer repair in Scottsdale, AZ, or a full replacement. To help you make an informed decision, Zippity Split Plumbing discusses which approach is better for your situation.

Assessing the Damage

First, we need to conduct a thorough inspection to assess the extent of the damage. Minor issues, such as leaks and blockages, can often be addressed through repairs. However, if the damage is extensive, such as collapsed pipes, a complete sewer line replacement may be a more viable long-term solution. After the inspection, we will discuss our findings and recommend the best course of action.

Age of the Pipes

If the existing line is old or prone to issues, we recommend replacing it altogether. New sewer lines are often made of durable materials that withstand corrosion, root intrusion, and other problems. This can provide you with peace of mind knowing you won’t encounter recurring problems and untimely sewer pipe line repair in the near future.

Once you encounter issues with your sewer line, reach out to Zippity Split Plumbing right away. We’ll carefully examine your pipe’s condition, offer the most cost-effective solution, and provide a fair and honest estimate for the job. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.
