City Plumbing & Rooter has been expertly performing sewer line replacement and repair in Ventura County for more than two decades. We have a team of trained and skilled drain specialists able to troubleshoot even the toughest sewer line problems to provide a permanent solution.

The first step in diagnosing common sewer line problems is typically a drain snaking. If our team discovers problems such as roots, sludge, or hard spots, we will recommend a sewer camera inspection to accurately diagnose the best possible repair or replacement option.

Common Sewer Problems

Cast iron and clay sewer lines are the most susceptible to problems and are typically found in older homes. They have been used because they are durable and long lasting, but even these materials have an end to their lifespan. Clay and cast iron can also deteriorate over time, experience breaks due to natural shifting of the earth, and they allow easy access for root intrusion.  

The nutrient-rich material in main sewer lines attracts growing tree roots and they will find their way in through even the smallest seams or cracks. Once they infiltrate the main sewer line, they can grow quickly further damaging a sewer line and even grow up through toilets.

Main sewer lines can also become clogged with grease, sludge, and hard scale. As materials harden in the line, the pipe diameter closes off and can eventually cause a backup.

Sewer Line Repair

There are multiple options for sewer drain repair. Our team will help residential and commercial customers make the best choice to permanently repair the drain with the most cost-effective solution.

Hydro-Jetting is an ideal option when the sewer line is intact but has a hard scale, sludge buildup, and even roots. A sewer camera inspection will indicate if the line is a candidate for main sewer hydro-jetting, a high-pressure water stream that will scour the insides of the pipe cleaning heavy buildup and removing roots.

If the sewer line shows cracks, holes, or small missing sections, the pipe may be able to be rehabilitated through pipelining. Pipelining is a form of trenchless sewer line repair. It is cost-effective, non-invasive, and will restore the line by creating a brand new durable pipe inside of the interior of the damaged sewer line.

Sewer Line Replacement

If roots have fully broken a sewer pipeline, there are large missing sections or major damage, the line may have to be replaced.

A traditional solution is digging up the affected drain line and replacing it with a new ABS pipe. In some instances, when the line is only damaged in a small portion under fresh non-landscaped earth, a traditional replacement can be the best course of action. However, if the entire line is in need of replacement or it runs under expensive landscaping and/or concrete, it will be the most costly option.

Pipe bursting is another trenchless option, but instead of lining the pipe, it replaces it with a new High-Density Polyethylene pipe (HDPE). HDPE is strong, durable, and seamless, making it an ideal replacement to warranty against future root intrusion. It can typically be installed in one day, depending on the length of the line.

Pipe bursting does require two small access points to enable the bursting cable and insertion of the new pipe. However, it all takes place in one action; the bursting head simultaneously breaks up the damaged sewer line while pulling the new HDPE pipe into its place. There is no removal or excavation required.

Our team is focused on advanced training in the latest technologies to provide the most suitable sewer line repair and replacement options for our customers. We offer free estimates for diagnosis and will base repair or replacement solutions on the unique needs of you, your property and your budget.

Highly recommend!!!! I've had my unfortunate share of emergency plumbing needs and seen my fair share of plumbers. City Plumbing and Rooter by far has been the best experience I have had. They are prompt, honest, and do exceptional work. What more can you ask for? I have a young toddler who is all over the place and they even cared to ensure all the equipment was clean and not any type of hazard to her while they worked. Their attention to detail is clear not only in their work, but also how they handle their relationships and clients over all. I will never call anyone else again!

I don't always leave a 5 star review but, I give credit where credit is due. I called City Plumbing to see when they can come out and assess/fix a kitchen leak and the whole experience was seamless and professional from there on. Their staff was nice over the phone and they sent Paul within the hour. Paul was very pleasant & thorough with his diagnoses of the situation. You can tell he's very passionate about what he does, and very knowledgeable. He explained everything and answered all my questions in a way that I can understand. He was able to find the root of the leak and give me options for the types of repairs that can be made. Within couple hours, my leaky plumbing issue was fixed. I was very impressed with their services and recommend them to anyone in the area!

This review is long over due as we had City Plumbing and Rooter out to our place about 4 months ago to unclog a drain. I had to be sure and give these guys 5 stars as they cleared our drain in record time and also uncovered other major plumbing issues in our yard. The crews work was impeccable. They replaced my line and left my yard looking just as it did before they started their work. I will be recommending City Plumbing & Rooter to all of my family and friends.

City Plumbing and Rooter was great. We contacted them after 7:00 PM and they came out within 30 minutes on the same day. Excellent response from the beginning. We had a shower/tub combo that was not draining and received a quote and they came out and fixed our problem for the price quoted. Very professional and friendly. I highly recommend.

Paul and his crew were great! They came out on a Sunday to help us with a serious leak from the auto fill valve for our pool. They also assisted us by installing some shut off valves and regulators to reduce the water pressure. These guys were great, hard working and did great work.
