What Causes A Sewer Backup?
Water damage, including sewer backups, are nasty to deal with and when you see water pooling on the floor in the basement, you will want to give us a call right away.
A sewer backup is pretty much what it sounds like, when water (raw sewage) flows backwards into your home.
If that sounds unpleasant, trust us, it really is and that’s why we will talk about what causes a sewer backup here today.
The Usual Suspects For Sewer Backups
- Plumbing blockages caused by home occupants
- A Sag or ‘Belly’ in the sewer line
- Deteriorated, aging or cracked & broken sewer lines
Plumbing Blockages caused within the house
Don’t let anything down the drain or toilet that isn’t meant to go there… Sounds simple enough I know, but we’ve said before, you would be shocked what we have pulled out of toilets.
Only toilet paper and human waste are meant to be flushed, don’t use the toilet like a trash can and avoid flushing personal hygiene products, diapers, wipes, cigarette butts, tissues or anything else that you think might be OK – It’s not…
Sagging Sewer Line
A sag or belly in the line happens when the grade of line pipe dips down and holds water. Over thime the sag will collect grease build up and close up causing blockages.
We have seen sags ranging from 10 – 50 feet long which can cause a lot of problem.s
Cracked or Broken Sewer Line
This can happen for many reasons. An aging sewer system, but the most common cause are tree roots which find a way to grow into the pipe joints.
