How Long Does Main Sewer Line Repair Take?
Repairing or replacing the main sewer line is a big job, and many obstacles might be a factor making the job take longer. Sometimes, tree roots have penetrated the line and need removing. In other cases, the entire line is corroded and needs replaced. Since digging up the line is usually involved, the average time to replace a line is 3 to 5 days. Repairs can be done more quickly if the damage isn’t too extensive.

Does Homeowners Insurance Cover Sewer Main Replacement?
There’s no doubt that a main sewer line repair or replacement is a big, expensive job. And when you need yours fixed, it’s natural to want your insurance to pick up the tab. Unfortunately, your policy rarely covers the damage unless a neighbor or other party caused it. If you’re unsure, consult with your agent to find out where you stand in the event you need a new sewer pipe.
