Sewer Line Replacement

Common Reasons for Broken Sewer Lines

Tree Roots

One of the most common reasons for sewer replacement is tree root infiltration. Tree roots search for water sources and can dig deep into the ground, where they can grow into pipes. As they grow, they can cause blockages and leaks. They may even end up weakening, or worse, breaking your pipes.


A bevy of materials goes through sewer lines on a daily basis, from human waste and toilet paper to grease and other foreign objects. Unfortunately, some homeowners may view their toilets as garbage bins and flush down miscellaneous items that can adversely impact the main sewer line.

Severe Damage

A clogged shower drain is one of the most common drain issues. Shower drain blockages are usually caused by a build-up of soap, long hair, or other sediments that do not allow the water to drain properly.

Aside from the abovementioned causes, other factors contributing to a sewer line’s damage or degradation can include extreme temperatures, the type of piping material used, and lack of plumbing maintenance.

Spotting Signs of Damage

One of the best ways to lessen the damage to your sewer line is to know what signs to look out for, which can include:


An older house will have equally older sewer lines. To have peace of mind, have our team of expert plumbers assess the condition of your pipes.

Draining Issues

Experiencing frequent clogs or hearing gurgling noises in your toilet? These are signs of possible blockage in the mainline. These should be taken seriously, especially if you have draining or clogging issues in multiple areas of the home.

Water Damage

Got a moldy spot on the ceiling? That’s an indication of water damage, which could point to more serious issues such as a damaged sewer line.

Flooded Yard

A flooded or foul-smelling yard is a tell-tale sign of damage. When this happens, give us a call to avoid incurring more serious damage to your property.
