Sewer Lines

 

  • Broken, cracked, offset or collapsed pipes – damaged sewer lines due to shifting soil, frozen ground, settling, etc.
  • Blockage – grease buildup or a foreign object is restricting or prohibiting proper flow and/or cleaning  of the sewer line.
  • Corrosion – the sewer pipe has deteriorated and/or broken, causing sections of the pipe to collapse and restrict flow.
  • Leaking joints – the seals between pipes have broken, allowing water to escape into the area surrounding the pipe.
  • Bellied pipe – a section of the sewer pipe has sunk due to ground or soil conditions, creating a valley that collects paper and waste.
  • Roots in sewer line- tree or shrub roots have invaded the sewer pipe, preventing normal cleaning and/or roots have damaged the pipe.
  • Off-grade pipe – existing pipes are constructed of substandard or outdated material that may have deteriorated or corroded.
