Common Sewer Line Problems 

Clogged Drains

When waste and debris build up in a sewer line, clogs happen. To avoid clogs, refrain from putting items such as paper towels, cooking oil, and grease down your drains. 

Tree Roots

Trees and other root systems are able to infiltrate your sewer line system and cause severe damage.

Broken Pipes

Broken pipes can result in total system failure, leaving your home with unsanitary plumbing conditions.

 

What Causes Sewer Line Breaks?

Soil Shifts and Ground Settling

As the ground shifts and settles around your sewer line, the pipe can begin to sag. Pressure from the ground on the bent point can cause it to crack and break.

Traffic Above Ground

Heavy traffic due to heavy machinery or vehicle use above the sewer line can put pressure on the pipes causing them to break. 

Freezing

Water flowing through your sewer line is capable of freezing. When water freezes in the pipe, it expands. With no place to go, this frozen water can cause cracks in the sewer line. 

 

How Sewer & Water Line Leaks Form

Though a sewer line can collapse or break for many reasons, an issue homeowners may run into are sewer line leaks. While not as immediate as a break, these leaks need to be tended to in order to prevent further, more major damage. Leaking can occur for many reasons, below are a few reasons leaks occur.

Faulty Joints

When a sewer line is installed, there are multiple spots where the pipes connect. If these joints were not properly sealed during installation, leaks can occur.

Cracks

When sewer lines shift, cracking in the line can occur. This cracking can lead to leaks and invaders such as tree roots seeking a water source.
