When Is It Time to Replace My Drain?

While our approach is to repair drains and sewer lines where feasible, there are times when a drain must be completely replaced. This could be due to natural wear and tear that renders a drain too deteriorated to be salvageable.

Or, it could be due to environmental factors unique to your property, such as intrusive tree roots.

Signs You Need a New Drain Installation Service

Here are some tell-tale signs that your home or business needs a brand new drain installation/replacement:

  • Old Home: If your house is half a century old or more (or if you’re unsure of when the drains were last upgraded)
  • Persistent Drain Issues: If you’ve been dealing with the same drain issues continuously for several months (or even years)
  • Backing Up Water: If your water appliances are showing signs of water backing up from another fixture on the same level
  • Blockages Despite Appropriate Disposals: If you’re experiencing blockages even though you’re not disposing of any inappropriate materials down the drain
  • Large Tree: If your property is in proximity to a large tree (which would necessitate an inspection)

If your drain is slow or is continually getting clogged, you may need snake drain cleaning service instead. More information on the cost to snake a drain here.

Drain Installation FAQs

Here are some common questions we get about drain installations:

How expensive is it to install a drain?

The overall cost to install a drain can vary based on several factors. This includes the complexity of your drain installation, and the type of drain you need installed. On average, you could be looking at anywhere from $200 to $500 for a basic drain installation. However, for more complex jobs, such as replacing a main sewer line or installing a more advanced drainage system, you should expect costs to be much higher. It’s always best to get a quote from your local plumbing company to get an accurate estimate based on your specific needs.

How deep do drains need to be?

The depth of a drain depends on its purpose and the local building codes. For example, a simple surface drain for rainwater runoff might only need to be a few inches deep. However, a sewer pipe needs to be deeper, typically at least 12 to 30″ below the ground’s surface. It’s also important to consider factors like the pipe’s slope and the potential for freezing when deciding on the depth. Consult your local professional plumber to ensure your drain is installed at the correct depth.

How deep to bury a drain line?

Drain lines typically need to be buried deep enough to prevent damage and freezing. This is especially true for sewer or septic systems. The depth can vary based on local building codes and the climate in your area. Generally, you should aim to bury your drain line between 12 to 30″ underground. However, in colder climates, the lines might need to be buried deeper to prevent freezing. Always check with your local building department or a professional plumber to determine the correct depth for your drain line.
