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.

Make your first call to Sewerheroes so we can quickly assess the problem and determine the best course of action to restore your home or commercial property back to normal.

Amazing service. Joey took care of my washer not draining properly in minutes, and was great to talk to. He tested both my sinks as well while waiting for the washer to fill, and cleaned everything properly, even putting a plate beneath my sink to make sure the wood would not get damaged by drips from his work.
