What Causes Sewer Line Issues?
Most sewer pipes are five feet underground from your house. Sewer pipes typically range from 4" to 6" in diameter and conveys all the wastewater from your home to your local sewer system. Most sewer pipes are typically made of either PVC piping, cast iron, or clay. Clay sewer lines are one of the most common materials used and unfortunately also one of the most prone to intrusion from tree roots. Roots from large trees grab the pipe and squeeze them causing them to break and provide a source of water for the tree. When this happens, it causes damage to the pipes effecting the flow of the home’s water waste. This often causes unwanted waste backup from main sewer line.
How to Detect Sewer Line Damage
A sure sign your sewer lines have been impacted comes from finding tree roots in your pipes when rodding the sewer line. Having your sewer line rodded with special equipment from your cleanout or toilet most impacted, can cut the roots out of the way and freeing up the drain temporarily. A second sign of sewer damage stems from soft blockage (items such as toiletries, feminine products, and waste) which clogs the drain and has a hard time going down. You may notice water entering your bathtub from the drain when flushing a toilet. While this can often be treated with a small hand rod, it is often a sure sign of sewer damage.
