Common Causes of Sewer Line Damage
Tree Roots: Root systems can find weaknesses in sewer lines and work their way in, causing cracks and eventually blockages.
Ground Temperatures: With the freezing and re-thawing ground temperature, metal pipes can warp and crack.
Build-Up: Dirt, debris, grease, and other foreign objects can cause blockages which increase pressure on the pipe’s joints, leading to leaks and cracks.
Age: As with all things, the longer you have had the same sewer line and drainage system in place, the higher likelihood that the materials have become deteriorated.
