Main Sewer Clogs: Common Causes, Warning Signs & Replacement Options
All of the plumbing fixtures, drains, and pipes in your home are connected to the biggest (and most important) piece of plumbing in your entire home — the main sewer line.
Between improper use of these fixtures/drains/pipes and many other outside factors, the main sewer line can take a beating. Eventually, the main sewer line can become clogged (or even collapse) to the point of needing serious repair, or even replacement.
Talk about a headache you don’t need!
Knowing what causes sewer lines to clog and the warning signs to look out for can help prevent you from ever having to deal with a major repair or replacement.
Tree Roots causing the trouble? Tree roots are a serious issue when they start wrapping around your plumbing pipes. This is a common occurrence in the Vancouver WA metro area. Every home seems to have several trees in the yard to improve the landscaping. However, once the tree roots start to wrap around your plumbing pipes, it’s only a matter of time before they cause breakage, resulting in leaks that will only get worse. Here’s some information from Super Terry Plumbing that might help you prevent sewer line breaks.
How to Stop Tree Roots in a Sewer Line
If you’re noticing that your sinks or bathtubs are draining slowly, or if you hear a strange gurgling noise coming from your toilet, it could mean that your sewer lines have been invaded by tree roots. A small-scale root invasion will just annoy you, but if left untreated, this problem could cost you thousands.
Tree Roots are Attracted to Your Sewer Lines
Believe it or not, despite all the unsightly things that travel through your sewer lines, tree roots are naturally drawn to them. Your pipes are filled with water, oxygen, and all kinds of nutrients, so they’re prime real estate for a tree looking to plant its roots.
Typically, a crack or loose joint in a pipe will allow vapor to escape towards cool soil. The tree roots grow towards this in search of moisture and nutrients, forcing their way into the cracks of the pipe and making their home there.
Here’s a video about cleaning tree roots from your sewer line.

Whenever possible we will attempt to use a trenchless approach to repiping your sewer line. Trenchless sewer line replacement is a relatively new technique and it involves using special equipment to go inside the old sewer line pipe and repair it without digging a big long trench. This saves your yard, driveway, and sidewalk, and other structures from damage due to the old style trenching process. Not every sewer line replacement qualifies for trenchless pipe replacement. We will do a complete assessment of your sewer line before we make any recommendations.

How would you like to fix that sewer line problem for good without cracking through a driveway or sidewalk, or even digging up your yard? That”s now possible, with a big cost savings to boot. Your clogging or leaking problem may have been caused by damage due to shifting ground, failed joints, and/or mineral build up (“calcification”). But the most common cause is the intrusion of tree roots through joints or tiny flaws in the sewer pipe. If your local plumber says they have to dig a trench to replace the sewer line, it’s time to call someone else! Because nowadays there are much better alternatives like trenchless liners.
