Repair Sewer Line

When you want a sewer line to last a life time, there is much more than just digging a trench and gluing some fittings.

Mock Plumbing recommends the use of sch 40 PVC pipe when you repair sever line or install sewer line. As shown in this post, Mock Plumbing replaced some damaged clay sewer pipe with sch 40 PVC. Most of the plumbers will tell you that it is an over kill to use a sch 40 pipe and a sch 30 for sewer pipe is sufficient.

However, when you consider what a sewer pipe may encounter over a lifetime, you would realize why sch 40 pipes is the only way to go. Just imagine a pine tree that is planted right over the sewer line. After thirty years or more, this tree has grown over forty feet in height weighing over one thousand pounds which could easily crush a thin wall pipe. For these reasons, hiring a reliable plumbing company that guarantees their work like Mock Plumbing is very important for any sewer line repair.
