The two most common issues related to your sewer line are physical damage to the pipe and a blockage inside the pipe. Physical damage to a sewer line can occur in various ways. Something as simple as planting a new tree can be the beginning of a big mess in your yard and further issues inside your home. A shovel hitting an older sewer line can crack or even shatter the pipe.
A crack in the pipe could result in sewage seeping into your yard and create more issues over time. A broken sewer pipe will dump all of your wastewater and sewage in your yard and create a huge, smelly mess very quickly. In other cases, damage to the pipe can occur when the soil around the pipe shifts during a temperature change or simply due to natural settling. Either way, the cracks creates in the sewer line are sure to lead to future issues.
The second common issue for sewer lines is a clog. This clog could be the result of years of residue build-up from the waste that flows through the pipe. Or it could be the long term result of a crack in the pipe itself. Even a tiny crack will allow tree roots and other debris to enter the pipe and create a blockage. When this blockage gets too large, the waste and dirty water cannot reach the city sewer main and will begin to back-up into your home.
