Main Line Sewer BackupsSewer backups in the main line are more severe than a single clogged pipe. Sewer maintenance professionals can help you evaluate whether your problem stems from a single drain or if you’re facing a main line sewer backup. A main line blockage is recognizable because it will cause multiple issues within your pipe system. Water and sewage follow gravity, flowing downstream until it reaches a blockage. When this happens, the waste will go to the first outlet possible, which is typically an open drain in the home or business. Major city sewer backups can cause waste to spill out of manholes or drains which is very healthy to individuals in and around the area.
What Causes A Sewer Backup?Even if you suspect you’re dealing with a single drain problem, it’s best to have the drain inspected to ensure that blockage doesn’t move into the main sewer line. Some of the most common reasons for a sewer backup include:
Sewer Blockages: Tree roots and debris are the two major causes of clogged sewer lines. While the city is responsible for the main sewer line beneath streets, home and business owners must properly maintain the pipes that run from their property into the main line. If roots grow into the piping, that blockage can begin to affect other areas of the sewage system. Preventative maintenance, like Hydro Jetting helps prevent sewer backups.
Stormwater Flooding: In events of heavy rainfall or other flooding, stormwater can overwhelm the sewage system. When the system is flooded with too much water, the waste begins to go back up into the pipes and out drains in businesses and homes.
Broken Sewer Lines: It’s not uncommon for a city’s underground infrastructure to be older in age with various areas of corrosion. Sewer lines don’t typically top a priority list unless there’s a major problem. When nearby construction or shifting soil cause the sewer lines to shift, pipes can crack or break completely. The toxic wastes and gases can then seep into soil and air, threatening nearby businesses and neighborhoods.
