What Causes the Need for Sewer Line Repair?

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 a hold of the pipes and squeeze them while seeking water which in turn causes them to break.   When this happens, it causes damage to the pipes and adversley effects he exit flow of the home’s water waste.  This can cause unwanted waste backup from main sewer line to return into your property.

How to Detect Sewer Line Damage:

If you find tree roots while rodding out your sewer, it is a sure sign your sewer lines have been negatively impacted or damaged. This often comes from tree roots or could even be from a vehicle driving over the pipe. 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. These could be things such as toiletries, feminine products, or bodily waste). Sometimes this waste  clogs up the drain and often restricts the water 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 could be a sign of a more severe sewer jam which needs to be treated.
