Sewer repairs occur for a number reasons.
The most common are water leaks from joints or couplers that are not water tight, And over time can erode the support out from under the pipe. Then tree roots can get in the sewer line. With the tree roots comes worms and bugs start to invade. Rats then invade the sewer line for food and shelter, They will dig under and around sewer line, up to the surface to get to bird seed, garbage cans, dog and cat food. If you see holes in a lawn that’s a good sign you have rats in the sewer line. The best way to stop rodents in your sewer is by a trenchless sewer repair.
The next type is water leaking from pipe that’s not water tight, like concrete pipe. It will leak out very slowly over time and roots will grow under the pipe to get to the water and nutrients / plant food. This can go on without you knowing it and the sewer line will work for a very long time with no hint that pipe failure can happen, and the cost to repair the sewer line can be high, What can be done! Well if your house was built before 1970 it’s a good idea to have a sewer scope done, The sewer scope will show you the type of pipe you have, concrete, terracotta, Orangeburg, clay, cast iron pipe and what shape it’s in, this can give you time to plan for a sewer line replacement, for what it costs versus what it can show you, well worth it.
