The Cost of Sewer Line Replacement in South Florida
Each sewer repair is different. Dozens of factors – from the nature of the damage to the material of the pipe – will impact your final payout. The seasoned professionals at Pipe Surgeons, however, can help you unpack the variety of factors that will affect your sewer line replacement cost so you can begin to get an idea of what your Florida sewer repair expenses might be.
Factor One: Pipeline Location and Accessibility
The first factor comes down to time spent. If your pipe has existing access lines, such as manholes or a clean out, getting our inspection and repair equipment into them should be a relatively simple process; however, if your pipe does not have existing access points and they need to be created, this will increase the resources used for your repair. Additionally, if a pipe without an access hole is very deep in the ground or beneath hard-to-navigate obstructions such as utility lines, this will also increase the needed resources and, in all likelihood, your final cost.
Factor Two: Pipe Material
Some materials, such as PVC, lend themselves very well to trenchless repairs. They are not prone to corrosion, withstand environmental erosion well, and tend to be durable with few issues occurring at once. In Florida, many existing sewer lines use concrete or vitrified clay. These materials, while useful, do tend to be susceptible to corrosion, cracking, and collapse. When pipes made of weaker materials are found, their issues tend to be more far-reaching which increases the material and time needed for repair.
Factor Three: Length and Diameter of Pipe Needing Service
Simply put, more materials cost more money. If the line that needs to be repaired has a large diameter or is very lengthy, more resources – like epoxy resin – will be required to adequately repair the pipe. Once we have performed our initial inspection, we can give you a clear idea of the scope of your project so you can plan your budget accordingly.
General Cost Overview: How much?
Keeping the aforementioned factors in mind, there are basic price ranges you can expect to encounter when scheduling your service.* The repair process itself, generally speaking, often falls into the range of $90 - $100 per foot. So, if your 6” diameter pipe needs 35 feet of repair you can expect to pay somewhere the $3,150 - $3,500 range. Trenchless repairs are completed with minimal to no digging, and can generally be finished within a single day. This means your sewer lines will be back in working order fast, and you won’t have to contend with any property rehabilitation after our work is complete.
