Causes Of Sewer Line Damage

A sewer line can be damaged for a multitude of reasons. Holes and cracks tend to appear on rusting pipes, or those with rodent infestations. At the same time physical obstructions or external intrusions can also be a reason for the damage.

Here are some of the most common causes:

Tree Roots

Tree roots, when attracted to the water and potential fertilizers flowing through the pipe, tend to coil around the pipe or break through its structure.

Rodents​

Small animals like rodents tend to get inside the home sewer lines and damage the interior of the pipes. They might lead to cracks and holes in the pipe and can enter your homes leading to a rodent infestation.

Wear And Tear

Your pipes will be exposed to a lot of factors leading to corrosion, calcium, and magnesium build-up. These weaken the pipe’s structure and lead to cracks or holes.

Grease And Oil

The cooking oil and grease that you discard down the drain tend to harden with a drop in temperature and end up clogging the drain.

Physical Obstructions

Any object discarded down the drain or flushed in the toilet that cannot be disintegrated eventually obstructs the pathway leading to clogs.

However, it might be too difficult for you to find the cause of the problem yourself, which is why you should should consult a professional.
