Sewer Repair & Replacement in Birmingham
Affordable Solutions Available 24/7
Although it often remains out of sight and out of mind, your sewer system plays a large role in your safety and the effectiveness of your overall plumbing. When it is working properly, your sewer line is responsible for diverting wastewater away from your home. You use your toilet, sink, and shower or tub at least once a day, not to mention all of your other plumbing appliances and fixtures. Due to their frequent use and all that you are flushing down your drains (soap, water, food scraps, waste), it’s not uncommon for your sewer line to experience clogs, cracks, corrosion, or other issues. Fortunately, the plumbers at Wilbur's Air Conditioning, Heating & Plumbing are well equipped to handle all of your sewer repair and replacement needs in Birmingham. We have over 40 years of experience and are proud to have become a staple of our community.

Birmingham Sewer Pipe Replacement
It is sometimes impossible to repair a sewer pipe once it has been severely damaged. Trenchless repair services are less intrusive and cost-effective than traditional methods. We replace damaged pipes with an epoxy that is pumped into the damaged area. A hard, strong shell is formed after our epoxy cures, which is completely leak-proof and crack-proof. To remove the old pipe with the least amount of damage, we conduct pipe leak and hydraulic pressure tests if we have no other choice. We always conduct excavations in a safe and sanitary manner by certified professionals.
Sewer Line Repair Process
To restore your sewer system to full functionality, our plumbing technicians will assess the damage to your sewer pipes.
Bursting - A new sewer pipe can be pulled straight through an old sewer pipe when it has suffered severe damage. Hydraulics can be used to replace broken sections with new seamless pipe.
- Cleaning - Some obstructions and clogs can be cleared using water jetting or power rodding.
