When Should You Consider Sewer Line Replacement in New Jersey?
Many common sewer problems can often be resolved through a sewer cleaning or with simple spot repairs. When is it necessary to do a full sewer line replacement? There are a few situations where completely replacing the pipe is the best option.
- Pipe corrosion – Sewer pipes are subject to good old fashioned wear and tear, especially those made of metal. Cast iron pipes are prone to rust.
- Extensive root intrusion – Small root intrusions can sometimes be dealt with via spot repairs, but if your pipe has been overrun with roots, it may be that the best course of action is to replace the pipe entirely.
- Old pipes with material that can fail at any time – Cast iron pipes or clay pipes have their benefits, but can also fail at any moment. If your pipes are made of these materials, it may be time to consider replacing them with a stronger material.
- Misaligned pipe connections and large cracks – If your sewer lines are misaligned or the number of cracks are too high, salvaging the pipe may not be possible.
Many of these problems can be prevented through sewer cleaning services or a preventative maintenance program which can help to pinpoint any potential problems before they occur.
How Much Do Sewer Replacement Services Cost?
Without looking at the specific damage or work that needs to be done on your sewer lines it isn’t possible to provide a concrete estimate of the cost. When it comes to sewer line replacement services, the cost will ultimately depend on several factors including:
- Sewer pipe material
- Geographic location, accessibility, and required method of excavation
- Repairing vs replacing
- Extent of repairs
- Complexity of repairs
- Camera inspection
If traditional excavation is required, it is going to cost more than if the replacement or repairs can be accomplished through trenchless methods.

Trenchless Sewer Line Replacement Vs. Traditional Excavation
There was a time when excavating the area surrounding a pipe was necessary to do any legitimate repairs or replacement of the sewer system. While excavation is still a common method that is used today, advancements in technology have also provided trenchless repair and replacement options that can be cheaper, quicker, and most importantly, less intrusive. In order to fully assess whether excavation is necessary, a sewer line inspection is always a good idea.
