Common Drain Problems

If you have a leaking underground pipe at your home or business, don’t call a traditional dig-and-install plumber, save time and money by calling the Pipe Lining Company, A CIP PIPE, LLC Company.

Some of the causes

Tree Roots: One of the most common causes of sewer backups is tree roots. Even if the area directly above your sewer line is free of trees, roots from a neighboring yard or business could be the cause of your sewer problem. Tree roots can cause a couple of problems for your sewer lines – they can grow into the pipes and cause holes and blockages or they may wrap around your sewer line and crush it. While tree root infiltration is common in many older homes, the truth is that it can cause sewer line leaks in any home no matter the age.

Broken or Collapsed Sewer Lines: If your home is older (particularly built before 1974), your sewer line could be compromised by broken, cracked or collapsed lines. Although plastic sewer lines have now become the norm, older homes were built using cast iron and clay piping that can break down over time and create sewer problems.

Natural Causes: When settling, freezes, flooding or shifting soil occurs, sewer lines and drain pipes may become damaged or break entirely. Collapsed and broken sewage lines can cause immediate sewage problems and may, in turn, create even more issues in the future.

Rust or Corrosion: Once your sewer line reaches a certain age, it may begin to show signs of rust or corrosion which can cause your sewer line to begin to crumble. Once this problem starts, small leaks will turn into large leaks in no time.

Improper Digging: Construction, installation of cable tv lines, installation of sprinkler systems, utility construction and other reasons for digging on your property may result in broken sewer lines.

Leaking joints: When the seals between pipes break, water escapes into the area around the pipe. These leaks can be real problems when they are in an area below a building or structure and can cause damage to the building itself.
