Sewer lines carry all the wastewater from your home to the municipal sewer system. Any clogs or damage in the sewer pipes could lead to a sewer backup, where waste collects in the pipe until it spills out of the lowest drain in your home. Not only does this create quite the mess, but it can also be dangerous to your health.

What Causes Sewer Line Backups?
Anything that slows down the wastewater flow in a sewer line can cause a clog and, eventually, a sewer line backup. Some of the most common causes of sewer backups include:
- Damaged pipes – Pipes that have been crushed or damaged due to age, excessive weight, shifting soils, frost upheaval, defective materials, or faulty installation could form restrictions that collect debris, leading to clogs.
- Bellied pipes – Sewer pipes that sag in the middle of a run or that are not pitched downward properly may slow wastewater.
- Everyday waste – Grease, food particles, hair, toilet paper, and other solids carried in the wastewater could accumulate at restrictions or vulnerable locations like elbows, forming clogs.
- Foreign debris – Materials that should not be in the drain system like paper towels, hygiene products, jewelry, or toys can easily slow wastewater flow and lead to clogs.
- Tree root infiltration – Tree roots will exploit even the smallest cracks or gaps in a pipe or pipe joint, sending roots deep into the sewer line to collect water and nutrients while effectively blocking wastewater flow.
