When it comes to having a clogged sewer line, it’s important to act fast – you don’t want to waste time with repairs! The longer you wait, the more you risk incurring severe damage to your sewer system.
So, let’s talk cost – the main deterrent for most homeowners.
Here’s the thing: it’s true that sewer repairs can be fairly pricey. An average estimate for baseline sewer repairs is typically quoted as somewhere around $2500 – $3000. But, it doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg for you to repair your sewer – there are a couple foolproof ways to cut down on costs:
DIY Tree Removal
If your sewer line is experiencing problems due to tree roots, it’s very likely that the tree in question will need to be removed before your system is able to be repaired. And, this is where things can get expensive – large-scale tree removal pretty much equals a hefty price tag. If there’s any way to remove the tree yourself (now’s the time to reach out to friends with heavy machinery!), this could save you thousands of dollars.
Another excellent way to save money when repairing your clogged sewer line is through forgoing more traditional methods of sewer repair, and instead embracing trenchless sewer line repair methods. Trenchless sewer line repair entails using less-invasive methods to fix your sewer system, without digging up your lawn and creating a mess on your property. There are a couple different types of trenchless repair, and it all depends on your specific plumbing problem, but: this type of repair tends to be much more affordable than standard sewer repair.
