In case of a damage we have to determine what’s wrong with your sewer line. At DMS plumbing we may opt to send a camera down the piping. The may increase the price for a sewer main repair however, this whole process can ultimately save in the long run. Just like a visit at a doctor’s office, determining the correct problem, can will cut down on unnecessary repair or replacement.

Why is a sewer line repair so expensive?
One simple reason: the sewer main line is entirely under the ground and often below gardens, lawns, driveways, or patios. Your yard may need to be excavated or your driveway jackhammered to even access the sewer main. Quite often the repair may not be so costly compared to the process. An actual repair may be just the replacement of a length of pipe or the removal of overgrown tree roots. It is the access that is the costly part of the equation.
