What causes sewer lines to clog?
• Sludge buildup over time
• Tree roots invading the pipe
• Grease poured down the drain by business owners
• Sewer line sagging from ground conditions
• Severe pipe damage (Rupture due to shifting soil, increased traffic above or corrosion of old piping)
Five warning signs you may have a sewer line issue:
1. Sour Odor
2. Slow Drains
3. Gurgling Drains
4. Flooded Yard
When your main sewer line is clogged, the wastewater that is sitting in the pipes has no place to go. Soon the sewage will force its way into a secondary drain.
When this happens, you'll have sewage coming up from your floor drains. Not something your business wants to happen!
