Some, but not all, sewer line damage is caused by daily routine use. Some damage can also be caused by the environment. Either way, the risk is high and could easily lead to the need for sewer line repair. Here are a few of the top causes of sewer line damage:
Pipes can be broken in a number of different ways. Freezing temperatures, for example, can cause the pipe to become brittle and break under pressure. Shifting soil, especially in North Texas, also contributes to pipes being broken.
Pipes age and can become corroded. Corrosion can eat away at the metal pipe and cause them to break apart or, more commonly, allow small leaks in severely corroded areas.
Pipes also suffer damage from continued build-up. Cooking grease is often cited for this issues. If you dispose of grease down the drain, the liquid form can solidify in the pipes causing major damage in addition to back-ups.
Roots are naturally drawn to water. In our case, most sewer lines. In more dry climates, it’s not uncommon for tree or shrub roots to grow toward a sewer pipe and eventually cause damage. Thus leading to major sewer line repair.
Underground plumbing is a series of pipes connected by joints. Over time, these joints risk being worn and exposed causing leakage and possible damage to the entire system.
As a homeowner there are a few signs you can look out for when troubleshooting your situation. Sewer line issues will lead to your bath, showers, and toilets not draining properly.
