What Causes Sewer Line Problems?

Sewer lines can become compromised due to blockages, cracks, worn or partially collapsed lines, and by tree roots. Grease, food particles, and items getting accidentally or purposefully dropped into toilets and flushed are the most common causes of blockages. Older pipes are prone to cracking and collapsing. This is especially true with cast iron pipes. Over time, cast iron begins to degrade and internal sections of the pipe begin to crack and fall into the line. This can cause your sewer line to become blocked and sewage to back-up into your home.

Sewer pipes can also sink along a portion of their path causing a “belly” where water and solid waste stops and stagnates. Once the dip in the pipe is full, solid waste begins catching on the waste in the belly. This causes large blockages in the pipe and can lead to water backing up into your home.

Tree roots are another sewer pipe hazard when they are planted too close to the underground lines. As the tree grows, its roots dig deeper, looking for water and nutrients, and your sewer line provides both. Eventually they can put enough pressure on the lines that they break and damage all together.
