Causes of Sewer Line Problems 

Sewers in Merced help homes and businesses maintain sanitary conditions. The main sewer line runs from your house to the street where it empties into the municipal sewer system. When something goes wrong with the sewer line, you could end up with sewage backing up into the house. The underground sewer pipe can become blocked or damaged in a number of ways. 

The main causes of damage to sewer lines include: 

  • Tree roots – The roots of trees move through the ground in search of water. If there are small cracks in the sewer line, the roots may grow into the line, which can clog and damage the pipe.
  • Obstructions and blockages – Clogs can happen anywhere in the drain system, from just inside one drain to the main sewer line. This can include solid obstructions and soft clogs, such as grease or oil. 
  • Ground shifting – The ground shifting can separate pipe sections or cause damage to the pipe. 
  • Normal wear and tear – As pipes age, they can corrode and degrade. Eventually, this can cause the sewer line to fail. 

Since the sewer line runs under the ground, you may not notice a problem right away. Signs of a clog or damaged main sewer pipe include multiple slow or clogged drains in the house, a bad odor, wet spots on the grass above the sewer line, and sewage backing up inside the house. If you notice any indication of a problem, don’t wait to call for repairs. 

Restoring Your Sewer Line 

Solving a sewer line problem requires the right tools for diagnosis and repair. A quality repair starts with accurately locating the source, cause, and scope of the damage. Our plumbers have the best quality tools and equipment to conduct a sewer line inspection to pinpoint the problem and make recommendations about how to restore the pipe. 

The work that is needed will depend on the specific problem and the amount of damage. A clog in the line or tree roots can often be cleared with hydrojetting, which uses pressurized water to blast through clogs. Other types of damage may require sewer line repair techniques. Your plumber can inspect the lie and discuss repair options with you.
