Sewer Line

As a homeowner, you are responsible for the maintenance of your Sewer Line

The Sewer Line is the pipe that carries wastewater out of your house. It begins in your basement and extends the entire length of your property up to where it meets your local utility's sewer main in the street. The sewer line is buried four to ten feet underground.

Over time, unpreventable conditions may cause it to become blocked or collapse, leaving you with the hassle of finding a reliable contractor in a hurry—and an expensive repair bill that's not usually covered by homeowner's insurance.
