If your Sacramento plumber recommends a sewer repair job, your final cost will depend on a variety of factors. For example, if trees have to be cut down and removed to access the sewage line, your cost will be higher. If your gas line was placed above your sewage line instead of next to it, your cost will go up a lot. If the city sewage hook-up does not go right up to your property line you may be forced to tear up the city street. Common problems that can lead to sewer repairs, especially on the clay pipes, include tree roots growing into and clogging the sewage line or grease being poured down the kitchen sink and accumulating in the lines with other gunk. It can also be your clay sewage pipe reaching its lifespan capability and simply breaking down.
