Sewer Installation & Repair
Book An Appointment
Do you need a new sewer installed? Are you having problems with your current sewer?
One sewer pipe, the lateral, connects your house into the utility sewer line under the street. It’s usually a 4-inch pipe that’s buried and properly sloped. Accurate slope is critical for the pipe to use the force of gravity to drain properly. Too little slope means it will clog at your home’s exit; too much slope and it will clog near the utility line.
There are five steps to installing a new sewer lateral. First, determining the elevations of where the home’s main drain exits the foundation and where it will connect to the utility main. Second calculating the slope by subtracting the final elevation from the starting elevation, then dividing by the total pipe run (length). Third, digging and lining the trench, often with sand. Fourth, installing the pipe and connecting it to the main utility line. Fifth, backfilling the trench, compacting each layer of soil carefully to prevent future settling.
Freedom Plumbing and Drain can help you with all of your sewer needs, whether you need a new sewer line installed or have problems with your existing line that need to be repaired.
Matt was incredibly personal and helpful throughout the entire process. He fixed the issue, kept true to his word on price and kept us in the loop throughout the project! Sometimes “plumber talk” can be over your head and he was patient and educated us on the issue and the repairs so we felt comfortable with the investment! All around incredible and will continue to use him in the future!
Matt was very knowledgeable, courteous, respectful of property, and thorough. I really appreciated his patience and understanding when there was a need to explain services required & reason for said repairs. He addressed all of our questions and offered some we hadn't thought of yet. I WILL be recommending Matt and his team to my family and friends.
Matt made it to my home when it was my turn in his long list of clients during this past Texas freeze. His main concern was making sure I finally had water to my house after 5 days. He capped off the broken line so that I could have water again, a second leak was found and he repaired that also and turn on the water. Thank you again Matt.
