Three Reasons Your Sewer Line Might Not Be Working or Clogged
Reason #1 Tree Roots
If the roots of a tree on your property are acting as an intrusion to your sewer line, it will compromise its ability to function properly. Particularly during times of drought, the root of a tree will seek out any water it can find. If your sewer line has a small leak, the root will search it out, and surround it. Eventually, this can cause your pipe to break and lead to a blocked line.
Reason #2 Flushing Foolishly
If you don’t think before you flush certain items, it could cause your sewer line to clog. Items such as wipes, hair, feminine products, plastic or similar items will cause a clog. Also, don’t be fooled by the claims that there are “flushable wipes,” they are not actually flushable and can cause a clog.
Reason #3 Sewer Line Sagging
A sag in your sewer line causes clogging. The area that sags traps waste so it can’t pass through. The shifting of soil typically causes this sagging.
