Sewer Line Problems?
Sewer Line failures are typically caused by tree roots or leaks in the Sewer line.Up until the mid 70′s ,sewer lines throughout the country were made up of 2 foot sections of clay tile pipes.These sections were joined together with oakum and cement. Over the years , settling and natural deterioration causes the joints to weaken and sometimes fail.If gaps form,nearby tree roots can enter the joints and flourish inside the moist pipes. The roots grow into spider weblike nests that restrict the flow and catch debris as it passes . This problem can be fixed by rodding the sewer lines to sever the roots, But this is only a temporary fix, as the tree roots will simply regrow.
Another problem caused by joint failure is the leaking of water from the joints into the surrounding earth.This can erode the soil into cavities creating a higher likelihood of clay pipe collapsing . If this happens , there is no solution other than replacing the line
