What Causes Damage to Sewer Drain Lines?
Click on a link in the list below to jump to each section.
- Normal wear and tear
- Underground tree root encroachment
- Shifting soil
- Haphazard excavation
- Neglected blockage
Normal Wear & Tear
PVC pipes have been used to construct sewer main lines since the 1980’s. While the PVC sewer main material itself should last well over 100 years, it is much more susceptible to penetration and damage from root encroachment than steel, concrete, or orangeburg pipes used long before the 80’s.
Root Encroachment Pipe Damage
Sewer drain lines can get impaled by underground tree roots. Many oak tree varieties are native and popular among homeowner because of their beauty and shade, but their roots can damage your sewer main line/drain line. If the damage is not fixable you will need to have the line replaced professionally. We can help with affordable horizontal directional excavation and drilling.
Concrete sewer lines are not as common as pvc, but they can last just as long (over 100 years). However, concrete is a cured material that can be prone to erosion, especially in certain types of soils. Shifting soil can cause costly damage even to concrete pipes, while PVC piping can withstand more flexion.
Don’t DIY excavation around your home. There are likely many different pipes, water lines, electric cables, and other utilities buries that if disturbed, could become damage. If you damage a utility line or your sewer main line they may hold you accountable for the cost to fix it.
Neglected Blockages & Improper Maintenance
If your sewer main line is showing any signs of wear and tear or blockage you should have it checked immediately. A neglected blockage can put undue stress on parts of the pipe possibly causing a rupture requiring complete replacement.

- Horizontal Directional Drilling

Difference Between Sewer Main & Water Line
A water line brings clean drinking water into the home that flows from the tap, faucets, shower, sinks, and bathtub. A sewer main line, on the other hand, carries wastewater away from your home from an underground pipe that gradually slows downward. The downward slope allows gravity to carry the wastewater away, while the clean water lines are pressurized and move water both vertically and horizontally inside pipes within the walls of your home.
