How Much Does It Cost to Replace a Sewer Line?
One of the most difficult challenges a commercial property or business owner faces is broken sewer lines. A broken sewer line is a recipe for disaster and can bring life to a standstill by causing persistent clogs. Additionally, a faulty sewer line can wreak havoc on your landscape by causing water to rise up into it. These types of problems cannot be put off till later and require even more time and money to fix it.
Sewer Line Replacement Cost Breakdown :
The cost to replace a sewer line traditionally ranges from $50 to $250 per foot. The price you pay depends on the type of plumbing you already have, the length of the line and the placement on your property.
Trenchless sewer line replacement ranges from $60 to $250 per foot. There are various trenchless methods to choose from when it comes to replacing sewer lines but the most common and the one we here at Cloud 9 Services, Inc. specializes in is cured in place pipe lining, otherwise known as CIPP lining.
CIPP lining costs $80 to $250 per foot, averaging about $9,000 for the project. The process creates a new, seamless pipe inside the current one. The pipe lining technician pulls a liner saturated in epoxy resin through the existing pipes. It reduces the diameter of the sewer line slightly but the flow through it is restored to how it was. CIPP only requires excavation to create one access point, which limits the damage to your property.
Which is better : Traditional Pipe Replacement or Trenchless Pipe Replacement?
While the costs of traditional pipe replacement might seem cheaper at first, you have to factor in landscaping costs for both the excavation to dig up the line and the repair costs to put the landscape back to the way it was after the project is complete. Additionally, if your damaged sewer line runs under pavement, large trees, or sidewalks that will be an even more tremendous amount to pay to fix the landscape afterwards. Also, you have to factor in the amount of time it will take to complete the project, depending on the size and length of the line it could take multiple days to complete. Your commercial property or business could be shut down for days while they repair the line, which means lost profits for you.
With trenchless pipe replacement however the factors listed above are not an issue. This method requires a little bit more of an upfront cost but in the long run could save you thousands of dollars. This method requires zero digging in order to complete the job, so you don't have to worry about excavation costs and landscape repairs. Utilizing the trenchless method of CIPP lining also allow you to save on time because it can be completed within a few hours, so you won't have to shut down for days at a time.
So while the actual costs of sewer line replacement varies on different factors, trenchless pipe replacement seems to be the method that gives you the most bang for your buck.
