Question: How much does it cost to fix a home’s sewage system?

Question by yoyo pop: How much does it cost to fix a home’s sewage system?
I recently looked at a home that is for sale. While in the basement, we saw what appeared to be excrement in the room where the boiler was and some other appliance. Just trying to guesstimate how much this could cost before we decide to purchase.

The only way to know is to have a plumber give an estimate. When you make an offer, there’s an inspection period wherein you can investigate things and change your mind based on what is found.

    It depends on how serious the problem is. If the problem is underground then it could cost you several thousand dollars. Picture having to pay someone to break up concrete in your basement to replace a broken pipe then having a backhoe dig up your yard up to the main sewer line to replace more cracked or broken pipe. If the problem is above ground, depending of the size of the problem then it may only cost you a couple hundred dollars.

    You did not mention if the home had its own septic system. If it does then a new tank, septic bed and all the fixings would cost you anywhere between $ 8000 to $ 12000 to replace. I did mine myself for a total cost of $ 4500 just for materials.
