Causes of Sewer Line Problems
A handful of circumstances may cause damage to a home’s sewer pipes. The following are some of the most common causes of sewer line problems:
Changing Weather Conditions
It’s possible for weather patterns to shift suddenly and lead to wind gusts and heavy precipitation. This can result in fluctuating temperatures, and if the changes are swift it may cause sewer pipes to contract and expand. The added pressure may cause them to finally burst.
Damage by Humans
This normally happens while a homeowner is conducting a landscaping or home renovation project. If one hasn’t properly mapped out where the underground plumbing exists, it’s easy to accidentally strike a sewer pipe while performing any tasks. In order to avoid this, make sure to properly survey the land and find out precisely where any underground pipes may be hiding.
Roots from every single plant are always in search of new sources of water. Some tree roots may be strong enough to rip through sewer pipes during this quest for nourishment. If you wish to avoid such problems in the future, it’s best to plant trees away from your property.
Old or Damaged Pipes
After many years, it’s possible for sewer pipes to become corroded or damaged and more susceptible to damage. This is typically a problem in older homes.
