Common Issues that Lead to Sewer Line Replacement

Old and worn-out lines are not the only type of sewer pipes that are at risk of damage or disruption. New sewer lines are also commonly impacted by some of these issues:

Tree Roots
Root intrusion is a big issue for sewer lines. Before planting trees near the sewer line, its important to consider the potential problems the tree’s roots may cause down the road. Root systems can burst through sewer lines, causing immense damage.

Stormwater Runoff
During a period of heavy rain or precipitation, the water enters the sewers. If the sewer isn’t equipped to handle the extra pressure, it may cause a sewer line burst.

Using a chemical drain cleaner may corrode and weaken your pipes, and may require a new sewer pipe installation.

High Temperatures
A sudden spike in the temperature causes the ground to shift, and often also results in a disconnected sewer line.
