Frequently Asked Questions

The amount of time that a sewer line lasts usually depends on the type of material it is constructed of. Pipes made from cast iron, clay or cement may last up to 50 years. Modern sewer lines made from PVC or ABS can withstand the test of time for much longer.

There are many factors that could cause damage to water and sewer lines. These are a few of the most common causes:

  • Tree roots
  • Freezing temperatures
  • Corrosion & ground disturbance
  • Aging pipes
  • Damage from nearby construction

The experts at Strathcona Excavating can offer a quick, reliable, and affordable solution for your sewer line or water line repair & replacement, regardless of how the damage occurred.

There are two main steps that all home and property owners must follow once it is determined that they have a leaking pipe.

The first step is to locate where the leak is coming from. This information will help diagnose the issue and assist in preparing the necessary tools to repair your broken waterline.

You should then shut off the valve controlling water flow to the damaged or leaking pipe.

Untreated water main breaks or leaks can lead to additional issues and potentially cause problems with your water system and lead to costly repairs. Call Strathcona Excavating as soon as possible to repair the damage done by a broken or leaking water line.

It is a good idea to have your sewer line ‘scoped’ with a camera. Home and property owners may find that their sewer line and plumbing may need to be cleaned out as it could be clogged with debris, or in some cases, tree roots. If the issue persists, there may be other problems at play, and your sewer line may be compromised.

We recommend that you contact us at Strathcona Excavating as soon as possible to repair and replace your sewer line. You can also reach our 24/7 emergency line at 780.416.9000

Depending on the state of the damage, our technicians will help you decide what option is more suitable for your home or property. Sewer and water lines that are older can create more long-term problems; however, if the damage to your sewer or water line is isolated, we can help you access the damaged portion so that it can be repaired.

This depends on the location of the break, how extensive the damage, and the environment in which the sewer or water line break occurred. On average, water services are typically restored within four to eight hours. This is contingent upon a variety of factors, and every case is individual. Contact Strathcona Excavating at (780) 416-9000 for your estimate today!

Homeowner's Insurance and Tenant Insurance will usually cover the cost of water damage inside the dwelling unless there is a repetition of condensation or leaking that hasn’t been attended to prior. However, insurance will not cover the cost to repair the appliance, nor the cost to remedy the original problem. Insurance will typically also cover water damage caused by water escaping from the public water main.
