The Causes & Dangers of Sewage Back
Issues with your sewer line are some of the worst plumbing problems you can deal with. Not only is it messy, but the waste from the pipes can take a serious toll on your health and well being. To help prevent sewage backup, it’s important to understand some of its causes.
The sewage system consists of intricate parts that all work together to make your life easier. However, external forces, poor installation, and other emergencies can put undue stress on your sewer lines, causing them to break and flood your property.
Common Reasons for Sewage Backup:
- Broken or collapsing sewer lines
- Tree roots break the sewage pipes
- Clogged drains backup the sewer lines
- Flooding overwhelms and clogs sewer system
