Most homeowners don’t give their sewage line a lot of thought because it’s something that you don’t see every day. A lot of people are also not aware that maintenance of the sewer lateral, the pipeline between the city’s main sewer line and your property, is their responsibility. So their sewer line goes unchecked for a long time until something goes wrong. When that happens, it’s often a problem that will cost a lot to repair.
Your home’s sewage line is an integral part of your house because it will transport wastewater from your house into the main underground sewage. This is why it’s important to check it regularly.
As a property owner, it is your responsibility to maintain and fix any part of the sewer lateral that extends into the street.
These are the common causes of sewer backups.
Old sewage systems
According to The American Society of Civil Engineers, the country’s over 500,000 miles of sewer lines are on average over 30 years old. With more homes being built and connecting to these aging sewage systems, backups are commonplace.
Most systems combine stormwater and raw sewage into the same pipeline, exposing them to more volume than they can handle.
Tree roots seek moisture and can make their way into cracks in the sewer lines. As they grow larger, this can cause extensive and expensive damages.
