What Causes Main Sewer Line Clog?

Severe Pipe Damage

When sewer pipes are broken or ruptured, the sewage won’t be able to properly drain  through the system leading to immediate and frequent backups.

A Sagging Sewer Line

While this is out of a homeowner’s control, sagging sewer lines happen over time.

Tree Root Infiltration

Older sewer lines were sometimes constructed out of clay or other porous materials. In addition, the connections between the pipe sections weren’t as tight as today’s PVC pipes.

Pouring Grease Down the Drain

Grease, fats, and oil are all some of the biggest culprits when it comes to clogging lines.
