Getting to the Root of Clogged Sewer Lines

A clogged sewer line creates big problems with your plumbing, requiring sewer line repair. Usually, it’s due to what’s going on underneath that beautiful shade tree in your yard—thousands of feet of roots constantly seeking moisture and finding it in your sewer line.

If you’ve noticed that your drainage system has started to slow down and perhaps heard a gurgling sound coming from your toilet bowl, now may be the time to make a repair.

Tree roots are usually the prime suspect when it comes to sewer line damage, but a broken or clogged sewer line can happen in a number of ways. Objects can find their way into the sewer line and become lodged. Extreme temperature changes and general deterioration can cause sewer problems, such as lines buckling or breaking and a repair is necessary. Ground shifting or improper installation can also lead to sewer line misalignment.
