Sewer line repair is best left to the professionals, but there are some things that are useful for homeowners to know about them. Here are a list of signs of sewer line problems, and some tips on how to keep your line clear.

What can cause sewer lines to crack?

  • Old pipes. The older a sewer line is, the more likely it's developed cracks.
  • Tree roots. Trees can grow into a sewer line and block it partially or completely.
  • Lack of maintenance. Sewer lines should get regular cleaning, to prevent problems from happening in the first place.
  • Underground work near the sewer line. A utility company crew or other work crew may have done some work near the sewer line and either disturbed it or put stress on it.
