Is a broken sewer line dangerous?
Yes, a broken sewer line can be dangerous. Damage to your main sewer line can cause significant structural damage to your home and if left untreated, can lead to cracks in your home’s foundation, a settled foundation, and/or even sinkholes (pools of septic waste). If you have a broken sewer line, call Pro Plumbing Air & Electric to have it repaired right away.
Can toilet paper clog a sewer line?
Over time toilet paper and other debris can clog up a sewer line as they get snagged on the tree roots that often infiltrate sewer lines. Flushing sanitary products, feminine hygiene products, facial tissues, paper towels, or even extra-thick toilet paper can severely clog up your sewer line over time. It is best to avoid flushing anything down your toilet other than toilet paper to avoid unnecessary sewer line clogs.
What causes a collapsed sewer line?
The main culprit of a collapsed sewer line is typically tree roots. Tree roots naturally seek out water so they are highly attracted to all of the moisture that exists within your sewer line. Unfortunately, these tree roots can end up growing into the actual pipe itself, through the joints, and after decades of use, the tree roots degrade from the constant exposure to moisture. Eventually, the sewer line itself will weaken to the point of completely collapsing. If you are struggling with a collapsed sewer line, call Pro Plumbing Air & Electric to help you replace it right away.
