Are you experiencing a sewer line stoppage? If so, you’re probably pretty desperate to get it taken care of. Sewer line stoppages can be disgusting and cause terrible damage to a home or business.

What Causes Sewer Line Stoppages?

In most cases, tree roots cause sewer lines to back up. Tree roots are far more powerful than you might expect them to be, and they are always in search of water. If there is any sort of crack in your sewer system at all, the tree roots will find it and force their way into the pipe. Once they’ve cracked the pipe open (they often attack at the main sewer line joints), they cause lots of problems. In most cases, they both cost you money (because they cause leaking from the pipes) and they cause a sewer line stoppage that you can’t handle without professional plumbing equipment.

Other causes of sewer line stoppages include grease build up and the flushing of inappropriate products. Sometimes commercial businesses have problems with sewer lines backing up because they don’t have adequate drain strainers in the floors or sinks and too much junk gets washed down into the pipes. Commercial restrooms have problems because patrons flush inappropriate items down into the system.
