What Causes Sewer Line Damage?
You may not realize it, but your home’s sewer pipe is responsible for removing all the water you use in your home. Not just water from toilets, but water from your kitchen sinks, washing machine, dishwasher, bathtubs, showers, and water softeners. Within a year’s time, that’s thousands upon thousands of gallons of water moving through a 2”-3” pipe. You can imagine the amount of wear and tear your sewer pipe endures over time.
Wear and tear isn’t the only reason sewer pipes become damaged. Some, especially cast-iron pipes, begin to corrode. If you pour chemicals down your drains frequently, this can speed up the process. Clay pipes become damaged from changes in the soil, root intrusion, and even large clogs that put pressure on aging pipes.
When is Replacement the Better Option?
Any time a customer hears they have a sewer problem, they automatically prefer repairing the damage rather than installing a new line. The reasoning behind their preference is the belief that repair costs less and doesn’t take as long. While this can be true, it’s not a hard and fast rule. In fact, sometimes repairs can cost more in the long run if the problem keeps coming back. This is especially true with older pipes.
Sewer replacement is often recommended when the pipe is bellied, corroded, or damaged to a point where there’s very little pipe material left, or when the pipe is nearing the end of its lifespan. Our plumbers in Douglasville, GA, and nearby areas use state-of-the-art tools to identify the problem. We make recommendations for plumbing repair, plumbing replacement, and plumbing maintenance based on the information we gather and our expertise.

Nick P. was very nice, professional, and knowledgeable. He assessed the issue, told us our solution, and fixed the problem all within 2 hours. Great service! We absolutely will be returning with any other plumbing issues. Thank you, Nick!Paige T.
I highly recommend New Era Plumbing! Michael was so friendly and respectful. He discussed everything with me and asked me questions to determine the problem rather than coming in and just deciding that he knew what to do. He was hilarious and my kids thought he was so cool because he plays Pokémon Go. Scheduling was a BREEZE, and they were more than willing to work with my schedule. I can’t say enough good things! Call them! You won’t regret it!Amy C.
Bobby from New Era Plumbing took excellent care of us! He arrived promptly, had a very professional demeanor, and was immediately able to diagnose our plumbing issues. He came prepared, repaired everything within the same trip, and with the warranties, the company offered, built up our confidence so we felt our money was well spent. We will not hesitate one second to request him for our all of our future plumbing needs. Thank you so much!Michelle T.
I only do surveys on a particular business when I believe that the business did excellent work. BJ, his coworker, and the entire New Era Plumbing team were fantastic from the time that I placed my car for an estimate until they completed the job. I can’t think of them enough for their professionalism and the quality of work that they performed at my home and I recommend them to anyone who has need of plumbing service. I have their number saved on speed dial just in case anything comes up and this is the business that I will be using to handle all of my needs going forward. Thank you for a job well done.Matthew J.
Nick showed up right on time and evaluated all my plumbing issues. He was professional and very respectful. Fixed my shower & sinks, then replaced my garbage disposal for a good enough price. He was able to answer all my questions, get the job done in two hours, and was very kind.David S
New Era Plumbing is nice, fast & pocket friendly. I’ve used other companies in the past and it seemed like I was always calling them back because the issue wasn’t resolved ... it wasn’t Until someone recommended me to New Era Plumbing. I called and they came out the same day and fixed my ongoing problem, it’s been a few months now and I’ve had no problems. Such great service is professional and does not leave a mess for you to clean. I will most definitely recommend this company to anyone having plumbing issues. THANK YOU NEW ERA PLUMBING!!!Lisha W.
The two service techs that came out (Bobby & Carlos) were highly professional. After replacing a leaking toilet, faucet & valves... the work area was left exceptionally clean. They also made sure I checked everything in their presence before leaving. They were personable, yet remained professional and represented the company very well. Should I need further service, I would definitely use them again and request the same techs.Robyn H.
I called New Era Plumbing for an estimate to install a new tankless water heater. They were very responsive. The technician, BJ, and his partner showed up promptly at 8 AM the next day. He walked the job, listened to what I had in mind, and made suggestions/recommendations. BJ was very knowledgeable and professional. He was able to provide a quote within minutes of inspecting the Job.Sharon C
I had a bad experience with another plumbing company so I submitted an online request to New Era, and Suzanne called me back quickly. BJ came out the same day to look at my main sewer line that was backed up. He explained my options and on Saturday, Oct 8 they arrived earlier than scheduled, showed me the issues, and repaired/replaced the pipes. I could not be happier that my plumbing is now fixed. Everyone was very professional. Thank you New Era team.Jaida
