There are a variety of possible reasons why you may be getting the hunch that something is not right. Some common telltale signs that there’s a problem with your sewer line include issues such as a foul sewer gas odor, growth of mold behind a wall, stalled draining, green patches in your grass, foundational cracks or settlement, or sewage backups and blockages in the lowest open drain in your home.
If you’re curious about your sewage line and it’s discovered that it has been compromised in some way, there are several reasons this could have occurred. Tree roots are one way your sewer line may not be functioning properly. If there is a small leak in your line, tree roots will search the small trickle out for hydration, especially during periods of drought or little rain. Eventually, it will surround your pipe and can cause it to be blocked or even broken.
If you don’t flush responsibly you can compromise your sewer line. Flushable wipes are a big culprit for blockages. In many cases the word “flushable” is a misnomer. Don’t believe the label. In addition to clogs, a sagging sewer line due to shifting soil can cause a “trap” or sag that blocks the flow through your line.
