Question: How Long Does a Sewer Line Last?
Top Answer (33% of 9 votes): 40-60 years.

Answer: 40-60 years
Explanation: The average plumbing system should last approximatly 50 years if treated properly. Keep your foundation watered to prevent soil movement. I see a lot of sewer issues due to foundation issues.
SDL Plumbing Inc.
Answer: 60-80 years
Explanation: Depending on the material used during installation. Cast iron corrodes and breaks down 45 to 60 years is typical prior to needing replacement. Terra cotta (clay) can last longer if it is installed on a hard bottom ditch with no settlement and no big trees nearby. Same for concrete. Proximity to large trees is always the worst scenario. A properly installed PVC sewer service line is good for a 100 years.
