What causes sewer backups that can be so damaging? The staff at The Plumbing Info consumer information site discuss the three main problems causing sewer issues in the article below. We’ve included the first cause: clogs, here. If you are interested in reading the entire article, click on the link at the end of the excerpt. There are some quick fixes available, too. Most often clogs simply require some cleaning. However, a clogged sewer can also be related to a break in the sewer line.
3 Common Sewer Backup Causes
A sewer backup is never a fun thing to deal with. Not only are they messy, but there is also a multitude of different sewer backup causes that you will have to consider. This article is going to explore three of the most common sewer backup causes. It is also going to offer some inexpensive, quick fix options that can clear most blockages at home.
One of the most common sewer backup causes by far is clogs. Clogs are the result of a type of material causing a blockage in one of your drain pipes within your house. They generally develop over time and have a variety of different causes.
Some of the most common causes of clogs include:
Small toys (Legos and small action figures are prime examples).
One of the first signs of a clog is when your drain begins working very slowly. However, some clogs that are caused by things like small toys and non-flushable baby wipes may cause a sudden and complete blockage.
As you can see, there are several reasons for a clogged sewer line that results in a backup. If you have a clogged sewer, try the home remedies first, however, if the problem does not resolve right away, you need professional help. Continuing to pour drain cleaner down the drain could simply result in more chemicals pooling in a break area, complicating pre or post repair work.
Also, tree roots and broken sewer lines are two major reasons for sewer line clogs. Often, the tree causing the sewer clog needs to be removed before the sewer line can be repaired or replaced. Sewer lines sometimes break because the pipe is old, or shifts in the ground cause the pipe to burst.
If you have a sewer line problem, whether a clog or a suspected sewer line break, contact Henco Plumbing Services, LLC, at 360-773-8039 as soon as possible and we will set up an appointment to examine your sewer line as soon as possible.
