Seattle Side Sewer Repair
Side Sewer Replacement
Your side sewer begins at and includes the connection to the public sewer system and ends at the point where it connects to your home plumbing system. This is usually 2 feet outside of the foundation line or your home’s outer wall. It is considered privately owned and maintained by Seattle Public Utilities (Seattle Municipal Code 21.16.190).
You may have side sewer problems if you notice:
- Sewage in the lawn
- Basement drain is clogged
- Downstairs toilet is backing up

That’s why we ensure that whatever work needs to be done to repair your side sewer doesn’t add to your stress. We prioritize efficiency and keeping your home intact as much as possible, which means we will do as little excavation work as is necessary to repair your side sewer line.

We will come to your home and diagnose the problem without digging up your yard by scoping your existing line with a specialized camera.
