Sewer Line Excavation
Traditional sewer line excavation may be a better option if your home is near the main sewer line with no obstacles. Likewise, sometimes excavation is the only option due to complexity. For example, if a sewer line is collapsed, or has backfall, a traditional excavation is needed.

Remove Roots from Your Sewer Line Without Assistance
Roots can invade cracked pipes in older structures, creating clogs. While all homes with this issue will eventually require a replacement, you can temporarily help this cause and delay service:
- Purchase two pounds of copper sulfate from your local hardware store.
- Pour the solution in your toilet bowl, ½ cup at a time, flushing after each pour.
- Leave the last ½ cup overnight, flush the next day.
Can Homeowner's Insurance Help With Sewer Line Replacement?
The cost of sewer line replacement typically falls on the homeowner. However, many policies offer options to protect against damages done to your home if your lateral backs up.
Talk with your local insurance agent if you are concerned about your home’s susceptibility to sewer line backup problems. Always review your homeowner’s insurance policy to understand your rights!
If you live in the municipality of Pittsburgh or surrounding area, check with the PWSA if your sewer line backs up -- if the issue is with your main sewer line and not your lateral, it falls on them to replace it!
