Question

What Can Cause My Sanitary Sewer Line To Clog, Crack Or Break?

Home Alliance Tech Expert
Answer

Blockages are most often caused by excessive buildups of grease (a result of pouring cooking grease and fat down the kitchen sink). When flushed, plastic and other non-soluble materials such as baby wipes, diapers, feminine products, and kitty litter can also get caught in the line and block the flow of wastewater through the system. Tree and shrub roots that have grown into the line are also a common problem. Unfortunately, contractors can also cause damage to sewer lines due to inexperience and improper tool usage.
