Common Causes of Sewer Line Issues

As suggested, sewer line problems can be as simple as toilet blockage or a clogged sink trap, but there are many other larger issues, such as:

  • Kitchen grease and other kitchen waste builds up in your pipes, eventually leading to slowing, blockage, and irritation, causing corrosion or cracking.

  • Flushing improper objects down the toilet such as non-flushable wipes, feminine hygiene products, paper towels, or kitty litter.

  • Mold or mildew may not only begin to grow in and around the pipes and drains but along the edges of the countertops and even up the walls.

  • As trees continue to grow, their roots can travel around or into and through the pipes of your yard either suffocating or cracking them.

  • Pipe corrosion as a result can of waste or age issues.

  • Sagging or burst pipes can happen within your home or in the yard which can cause a multitude of problems beyond the original sewer line issue.

  • Bright green patches in your lawn or rapid grass growth in specific areas can be evidence of more water coming from a leaky or broken pipe underneath.

How to Fix a Backup Sewer Problem

If you want to learn how to fix a backup sewer problem, you first need to learn what the causes of the backup might be. Once you've determined that, you'll know if (and how) you can fix the problem—or if you'll need to call in a plumber.

Reasons for the Backup

One of the reasons your sewer might be backed up is because of a clog. A clog occurs when some material gets stuck in the pipe, which blocks the flow of water. They don't usually occur overnight but slowly build up over time.

Clogs can be caused by a variety of materials, including grease from cooking that's hardened over time, hair from showering, pads or tampons, baby or facial wipes, and toys. (If you have kids, it could definitely be toys.)

Another reason for backups is main blockages in your local sewer system. These are just like clogs, but instead of occurring in your home, they occur in the sewer system that's run by your county, city, town, or state.

If this has happened, some signs are that your entire sewer system throughout your house isn't working (instead of just in one area, which means it's a problem in your home).

Finally, another reason for the backup is tree roots. If you have trees in your front yard or behind the house, then their roots can slowly grow beneath your home over time, damaging the plumbing pipes beneath it.

If there's a blockage in your local sewer system or a tree root that has taken out your home's sewer pipes, then you'll have to get in touch with a professional or with your local sewage administrators.

However, if it's a clog in your home, it's worth trying out a few fixes before calling a plumber.


The Fixes

If you're having a problem with your sewer at home, there are a few different fixes you should try out. The first is using your plunger. Even though you might be used to only using it for toilet blockages, it can actually be used on any drain and easily fix the problem.

Another way to fix the problem is by using an auger. Though you may not have one at home, you can buy one. Buy the hand-cranked type, and stick it into the pipe, reaching the clog and destroying it by putting it deep into the pipe.

Finally, you can use a liquid drain cleaner. If you're not able to fix the issue with the plunger, then this chemical substance can break apart whatever's causing the clog. Don't forget, though: you can't use liquid drain cleaner on toilet blockages as this creates a leak!

When using a liquid drain cleaner, remember to wear gloves and any other protective gear while you're pouring it in. Follow instructions, so you don't risk getting toxins on your skin when you shower the next morning!
