What Causes a Sewer Backup
A variety of factors can contribute to your sewer backup. Some of the most common causes include:
- Clogged sewer pipes 1
- Collapsed pipelines 2
- Tree root invasions 3
- Municipal sewer issues 4
Clogs throughout your sewer pipes stem from solid materials building up. They prevent wastewater from flowing to your municipal sewer line and result in a backup. To prevent a sewer line clog, be mindful of what you’re flushing down your sink and toilet. Hair, grease, oils, fats, excess toilet paper, soap, and food waste cause blockages and should be avoided.
Tree roots can grow through your sewer line, wrap around your pipes, and crush them. This prevents wastewater from flowing away from your property and results in a sewer backup. Tree roots can grow up to twenty feet from a tree, so be mindful about where your sewer line is located on your property.
A damaged or collapsed pipeline occurs from old age. If your sewer pipes are over 30 years old, they’re more likely to be corroded and deteriorate. Trenchless pipe lining methods repair and restore aging pipes so they can keep wastewater away from your home without causing a sewer backup.
Finally, the same issues that your residential sewer faces apply to municipal sewers. They can deteriorate, clog, and collapse over time. If multiple homes on your street experience sewer backups, the problem is your shared municipal sewer.
