Why Does My Sewer Backup?
While some causes of sewage backups are common in city or county main sewer lines and are under the city or county's responsibility, there are other causes as well. The sewer lines from the street to the dwelling on the property as well as any lines between buildings and the main line are usually the property owner's liability and responsibility.
3 Good Reasons Why a Sewer May Become Blocked
There are three main causes for pipes and sewer blockages and while some are simple to detect and easy to prevent, some are hidden and can hardly ever be detected before the damage occurs.
- Objects Accidentally Flushed Down a Household Drain:
The most common cause of sewage backup is a blockage in a intersecting service pipe between the home and the city main. In the case of home and office plumbing, generally, the main cause of a blockage is the accumulation grease, hair, dirt, or solid materials, such as disposable sanitary napkins, broken dishware, garbage, diapers, and other types of debris that are too much for the wastewater pipes to manage effectively.
A problem like this is usually a local problem inside the dwelling. Most of the time, it is the water from the home that is backing up. The amount of backup will depend on the amount of water that is used. When the water is turned off it will drain very slowly but the problem is likely to return as soon as the water is turned on again.
The infiltration of tree roots are a major cause of backups. Tree roots usually enter the pipe at joints and move a long way. This intrusion of roots causes blockages along the way. Tree roots are known to create structural defects as they often crack and break pipes as they continue to grow.
- Structural Defects:
Structural defects develop overtime and may eventually cause major damage to the piping Damage of this magnitude can lead to serious overflow ramifications. This will, quite likely, require complete reconstruction of the existing sewer lines.
Structural defects sometimes occur in both pipes and manholes. Structural defects may include problems with sewer lines such as cracks, holes, pipe collapse, sags in the line, misaligned pipe, and pipe joints.
