Causes of Sewer Backups
Sewer Line Damage from Tree Roots
If tree roots grow unhindered in sewer pipes, they can eventually destroy an entire sewer system. Regular inspections or cleaning is important for homes with trees on their property.
Cracking or Collapsing Sewer Line
A sewer line eventually needs to be replaced. The effects of deterioration will eventually result in a sewer line breaking up or collapsing.
Severe sewer clogs can lead to sewage backups in the home. Regular cleaning can help prevent backups from clogging.
Overflow from Sump Pumps & Gutters
If your sump pump or gutter system diverts water into your sewer, you may be at risk of causing a sewage backup during heavy rain. Most sewer lines are not designed to handle excess water from rainwater.
