What Causes the Need for Main Sewer Line Repair?
Your main sewer pipe is the most important pipe in your home’s plumbing. If you develop a clog or leak in the main line, it affects nearly everything piece of plumbing in the house. When people misuse their drains, it takes a toll on the main sewer line over time. Here are the main reasons you may need sewer line repair.
- Damage: Sometimes, main sewer lines become damaged by shifting soil or the use of heavy equipment up top. Other times, the damage comes from corrosion due to the pipe’s age. This damage causes joints to fail and leaks to occur.
- Sagging Line: Over time, some sewer lines sag because of poor soil conditions. Sagging causes stress on the pipe, which can lead to ruptures.
- Tree Roots: Many old sewer pipes were made from porous materials like clay, and tree roots naturally seek out an available water source. Other times, small leaks lead to tree root infiltration too. Once the roots grow into the pipe, the clog forms, and the pipe may eventually break.
- Flushing Non-Flushable Items: Many people flush things they shouldn’t down the toilet, such as feminine hygiene products and personal wipes. The only things you should ever flush are human waste and toilet paper.
- Grease & Fat: When cooking, don’t pour cooking grease, oil, or fat down the drain. Dispose of these materials by pouring them into a container such as a coffee can and putting it in the trash. Grease and fat harden when they cool and clogs your pipes.
