WHAT CAUSES SEWER LINE PROBLEMS?
Damage to sewer pipes can be done by both man and nature.
Some of the most common ways sewer pipes can be damaged include:
- Tree roots: It’s common for roots of all plants to go in search of fresh sources of water. Tree roots can be strong enough to destroy sewer pipes when seeking nourishment. Such problems can be avoided by planting trees away from any pipes installed close to your home.
- Human error: It’s possible to accidentally strike a sewer pipe if you’re performing any landscaping or home renovations, especially if you don’t have a good idea of where the plumbing exists. The best way to avoid this is by mapping out exactly where hidden pipes are before undertaking these projects.
- Changing weather patterns: Weather has a tendency to shift gears suddenly, in the form of wind gusts and precipitation, which can cause temperatures to fluctuate quickly. This may cause sewer pipes to contract and expand, which adds pressure and causes them to burst.
- Old or damaged pipes: Sewer pipes can become corroded or simply damaged after years of heavy use. This is typical in older homes.
