Common Causes of Sewer Line Issues
Sewer issues are not only reserved for old houses with worn out pipes. Problems with the sewer can happen to anyone at any time. Some of the most common causes of sewer problems include:
Roots: We always encourage homeowners to plant trees far away from the sewer line. Root systems will travel underground, reaching toward a source of water. They will burst through sewer pipes and cause immense damage if the line is too close to the roots.
High Temperatures: A sudden spike in the temperature or major weather event could cause the ground to shift, resulting in a broken sewer line.
Corrosion: Old and worn out pipes will also require new sewer pipe installation at some point. Did you know that using chemical drain cleaners in the home will also add to the corrosion and speed up the process of wear and tear?
