What Causes Sewer Line Clogs?

-Broken or collapsed pipes. Anything from freezing ground temperatures to shifting underground soil conditions can cause damage to pipes. We can make prompt repairs that restore your drain system to good working order.

-Blocked pipes. Buildup due to grease or debris is a common cause of restricted water flow.

-Pipe corrosion. When sewer lines degrade from corrosive materials, they can eventually collapse and restrict proper flow. The result can be sewage backing up into your home, which can lead to more problems that disrupt your home’s daily routine.

-Leaking joints. When the seals that connect pipes break down leaks are soon to follow. Like most plumbing-related problems, leaking pipes require service right away to prevent more problems from developing.

-Invasive tree and plant roots: Regular flow through sewer lines can be impeded by troublesome plant roots that grow into the line and form obstructions.

Sewer line repair is commonly accomplished with the open cut – also called trench – method to get access to the area around the damaged section of the pipe. A backhoe is used to refill the work space. We can also perform trenchless repairs, which eliminates the need to dig up your yard or landscaping.
