How much sewer main repairs cost in Sacramento depends on the extent of excavation involvedSewer main lines in Sacramento are the direct connection from the city’s main sewer line to your home. If, or when, your main sewer line cracks, breaks or becomes corroded, the costs can easily add up.

The average homeowner will typically spend anywhere between $1,045 and $3,587 for an average cost of $2,296 to repair their sewer main. However, some homeowners may only need to pay a lower cost of $195 or some may be subject to pay the higher cost of $5,950; some may even have to come up with tens of thousand dollars worth of repair costs for their main sewer line.

It really just depends on the condition, location and repair method of choice. For example, since main lines are located under gardens, driveways, roadways etc., it would depend on how much labor is involved in the excavation process-- if any at all.
