Sewer line damage is a cause for concern among property owners. Even a minor damage or leakage in any of the pipes can cause a gamut of problems for the locality.
An extensive network of sewer lines connects with the main city sewerage pipe. When a sewer line is leaking the main concern with the local authorities is ground water contamination. You may also notice a smell in the area where the pipe has been leaking.
What are different kinds of damages that affect sewer pipes?The main deterioration of the pipes is due to water corrosion. Particular sections of the pipe might collapse or break causing hindrance to the flow. Often also an excessive grease build-up can block sewer pipe causing it to leak. Other than grease, foreign objects lodged in the pipe cavity too can cause trouble with sewer lines.
Old pipes often crack and break if they are not replaced on time. Moreover shifting earth due to nearby construction or seismic activity and a drastic change of temperature can cause a pipe to develop fissures or break away completely.
