3 things to know before replacing your sewer line

One highly rated provider shares three things to look for when determining the price of replacing your sewer line and other factors that may affect the price.

Can a missing cap clog a sewer line?

Dear Angie: We have a clogged sewer line, which the first plumber could not unclog. A second plumber ran a camera and said that the missing sewer cap was in the drain, causing the back up; he quoted me $1,300 to break up some concrete, retrieve the cap and put a new cap on. Does that seem like a reasonable solution and price?

"Had a backed up pipe.

came out and we couldn't find the clean out the first day - he got back the next morning and quickly finished the job. Also gave good recommendations on making some improvements to make it easier/cheaper the next time around.

, Contractor from
Portland Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
showed me how to find the sewer line under the sinkhole on a website, and said that the next step would be to video scope the line. Since someone I trust had recommended another contractor, I told
Portland Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
I would meet with them and get back to him if the other contractor did not work out.
Portland Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
was cooperative, completely professional, knowledgable and helpful.
Later the same week after the other contractor had completed the video scoping sewer line job, and then told me he is backed up 2 weeks, I called
Portland Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
back. The 2nd contractor had failed to return 3 calls over 2 days regarding an urgent matter, which had kept me and two neighbors hanging in the meantime. When he finally did return my call, he had decided it would not be safe for anyone to excavate the sewer as the 2 houses involved are less than 7 feet apart, and the sinkhole is between them. Overall, my experience with the 2nd contractor had not been that great, so I called
Portland Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
back to inquire about an estimate to repair/replace the sewer line that Friday afternoon. They sent
Portland Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
, who is very patient on all fronts. He explained what causes sinkholes to me as I still did not fully understand how they occur. He watched and explained the video scoping CD I had been given, and offered an informal estimate for the sewer line repair. He also offered his opinion about what might have caused the sinkhole, but said his should not be considered a conclusive answer because he is not qualified to make that call.

love a man who knows his limits!
I found both the people
Portland Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
sent to my home to be exceptionally helpful. Both men knew what they were doing. They showed up on time, and
Portland Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
stayed well past 5:00 pm on a Friday evening. That deserves recognition!

preformed a camera scope of the residential sewer line at the property as part of a home inspection process. A video of the inspection was made available via YouTube link.
In the video, the inspectors voice can be heard describing the process as the line is tested and the camera travels through the line. Each transition is described up until the line junctions with the city main.
The inspector showed up early and completed the inspection quickly.

"This was an 8.30pm call out, there was a bit of a kerfuffle trying to find my location so I met
Portland Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
at a local supermarket and he followed me home. - that was a bit unexpected and inconvenient but really was my only negative. After that, he quickly assessed the problem and had the drain unclogged and flowing properly.
For all the oddity of how he got to my place, he still arrived within an hour from my initial call and was finished in about another hour and a quater.
Would definitely call him again next time the roots get into the pipe.

"We had water and yuck backing up out of a basement drain and the downstairs shower was not draining properly. I called
Portland Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
this morning at 9:00 am and they gave me a time after 1:00pm this afternoon. I was carefully informed of the base fee ($98/hr), overtime started at 6:00pm if things turned ugly. Right on time an AWESOME techician named
Portland Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
knocked at the door. He surveyed the problems, told me waht he thought it would be to repair the waterflow to the city sewers.
Portland Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
carefully brought the equipment in, wiping rain water and grass blades off his tools. He packed it all to the basement, grinding and thumping noises arose from below. 15-20 minutes later
Portland Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
was packing up his tools. He cleaned up after himself, leaving the job cleaner than he found it.
I have to say after all the "news" lately about scam artists in the "roto-rooting trade" i was a bit nervous.
Portland Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
was upfront with all charges, potential charges, additional fees if deemed needed.
Transparency, honesty, hard work, cleaning up after their work, friendly professional staff, good telephoe support, good scheduling.
I am impressed and would highly recommend

to anyone... WITHOUT RESERVATION... THEY'RE AWESOME.

"Is there a lower rating than F? They deserve something like ZZZ and that would be considered a high rating. This is by far the worst company in business. Such a great representation of a super service award
Portland Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
. They are the poster child of bad contractors. They are never on time if they show up at all. The first experience was for a clogged sewer pipe. The appointment was made for the first thing the next day. They showed up over two hours late. With several phone calls to the company as to the whereabouts of the employee, I was always told that he was in the neighborhood. An hour later, the excuse was he stopped to get gas. Upon arrival, the employee was not apologetic, and had a bad attitude. I told him that I was not pleased with his lateness and explained that my job only paid for work preformed. No work, no pay for me. Worked out a deal where he would clean drain and video tape sewer line for $300.00. Upon completion of the work, the bill was for twice the amount. Would not honor the agreed upon price. An appointment was made for the big boss to show up to provide an estimate for the replacement of the sewer line. I took off work and waited. Again no work, no pay for me. He was a no show. Upon calling the office, I was told that I was not on the schedule. When asked why not, the response was that they remember making it but forgot to add it to the schedule. Another appointment was made. Again the owner of the business was late. Called the office as to the status of his where he was, and was told it would be soon. After a wait of 45 minutes, he showed up. I told him the displeasure of the service I was getting from him and his company. He replied tough luck. He went to see the sewer line and had a difficult time seeing the problem and the markings his employee provided. He did not not know what was going on and presented a confused look. When asked questions regarding how they would proceed with the replacement, he was offended and stated that I was not to ask questions. Turned around and left the premises. Must be nice to treat customers very badly, rip them off of hard earned money and still get Angie's List Super Service Awards. Thought the purpose of Angie's List was to stop this practice for their customers."

"Water was backing up from the basement floor drain. Flushing the toilet caused a mini flood.
Portland Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
cable cleaned the sewer line and got everything moving again. They called to let me know they would be 15 minutes later than the time frame they estimated earlier. He covered items in the general vecintiy with drop cloths to keep splatter off of them. Took about 30-45 minutes to complete the job. He did not think we needed the line scoped since he did pull out some cloth from the line. He said if it clogged again we should have a scope done of the line."

"I hated calling on a Sunday, but needed to get it done right away. The person taking the call was very cheerful, saying their schedule was quite full for the day, but would squeeze me in. The plumber called saying he was on the way, arriving when he said he would. He listened to my explanation of what I thought was wrong and what I had done so far. He was very friendly, but professional. Giving hints all the while, about how to avoid this type of clog in the future. After he was done, he cleaned up around the area he was working, even though most of it was my own mess from the night before.
I will surely use this company again in the future and recommend it to friends.

"Negatives · I’ve always felt like my property was an ‘afterthought’ compared to my neighbor's much more extensive work. Overall proactive communication was quite poor: I was not informed when
Portland Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
was going to initially come out to bid on contract (I had to learn from my neighbors so I could scramble out). I had to get my bid for my property from my neighbors rather than directly from
Portland Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
(I
Portland Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
’t believe it is appropriate sharing this information with neighbors and asking them to send this contract to me). I was not informed when work was to begin until 2 business days prior to actual start date (again an oversight by
Portland Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
). I had to make last minute arrangements at work to take some time off to accommodate access to my garage, etc. in the initial days of the project. Water supply line on my property was broken during the trenching. I understand these accidents happen and
Portland Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
’t blame
Portland Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
for this. HOWEVER, this was never proactively communicated to me when this occurred. When I arrived home that evening, I saw extremely dirty water coming out of all faucets, toilets, showers, etc. I wasn’t sure whether this was somehow a sewage backup. Only after I questioned the work crew the next morning did I find out about the broken water supply line which was source of the dirty Final Bill was incorrect. In the contractual agreement,
Portland Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
stated they would need to do a 10 foot trench along sidewalk, even though all my prior bids (including
Portland Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
's back in 2007) indicated just a 5 foot section of terracotta needed to be replaced. I put in an addendum indicating if work is performed less than 10' trench indicated, $300 was due back to owner. Of course, this was overlooked, but after following up with
Portland Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
, this did get corrected. Positives · Overall, I believe the Quality of the repair was good. . Concrete work seemed good overall. Work crew, overall, seemed professional. Overall, crew gets good scores for keeping an organized, safe, and clean work-site. I didn’t have to worry about falling into holes and job site was kept as clean as realistic for the work performed. Based on this, I would give
Portland Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
an overall Grade of C. A letter ‘B’ for overall quality of work offset by a ‘D’ in terms of overall poor interaction/communications with me on this job from the beginning of the project (not one isolated incidence, but multiple incidences as communicated above).

"I called
Portland Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
because I had sewage backing up in my basement. They came out almost immediately and took care of the problem easily for the price I had been quoted on the phone. He was informative and seemed to be very knowledgeable in plumbing/sewer issues. He didn't try to sell me additional services or work which I also appreciated. I would definitely recommend
Portland Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
to anyone in need of sewer/drain cleaning.
