That way, they can take the necessary precautions to help them avoid sewer line issues down the line.

Age Of The Pipes

Different types of pipes have different lifespans estimated by the manufacturers. While regular maintenance and repairs can help increase that duration, it gets to a place where the pipes are no longer effective. Old pipes can experience numerous issues like leaks, corrosion, clogs, and breakage, which keep occurring even after sewer pipe line repair procedures.

Root Intrusion

This is one of the most common causes of pipe damage. Tree roots grow towards the pipes looking for water and additional nutrients. This results in them making huge cracks, through which they grow into the pipes. The bigger they grow, the more they burst the pipes and create bigger clogs. When left for long, the only remedy for this issue is usually sewer line replacement.

Weather Changes

Too much rain could mean too much water passing through the pipes, overloading them. In areas with extreme temperature shifts, pipes can also be prone to cracking or bursting completely during winter when water freezes in them forcing you to replace sewer line pipes at inopportune times.

Severe Clogs

Recurring clogs can happen from the accumulation of grease, minerals, soap, hair, or soap scam. They could sometimes result in total pipe blockages and backups. The more they sit on the pipe surface, the more corrosion they cause. That weakens the pipes and could result in breakages, leaks, or bursts.

Ground Shifts

When the ground around the pipes moves, the pipes can settle, causing a pipe belly, resulting in slow drains. If the ground shifts near pipe joints, they could collapse, causing a severe leak.
