How Much Will Replacing or Repairing my Sewer/Water Line Cost?

Your yard started to get soggy and/or started to smell so you called your local plumber (hopefully that’s us 😉) and they told you that you need to replace/repair your sewer or water line. It could have been that you have an older house and the clay piping could not longer fend off those pesky roots or maybe just some bad luck with a crack or burst. Whatever it was you are probably wondering, how much is this going to cost?

How much is this going to cost?

We can’t give you an exact estimate here. We have full-time employees that do this because of all the variables that go into it. But we can give you an rough idea of the cost and the three major factors that influence the cost.

Depth:How deep the line is crucial to the price of your work. If its 2-4 ft deep then your cost will be significantly less than something that is 4-10 Ft deep.

Length: Kind of obvious, but how much of the line we need to repair or replace and how long that is will go into determining your price.

Complexity: Will we be fighting around some type of obstruction? Are we digging into rock and gravel instead of soft ground? These are some example of situations that can add man hours to your job, increasing the cost.

How much will replacing my sewer line cost?

Notice the range we give. This is because we will never know the complexity of a job until we see it. If you have a 4ft line and we’re repairing 10 ft but we’re digging into rock it may take 2-3 days to dig. Obviously the cost of that job will be higher. Good news is, our estimates are free.
