What causes damaged sewer pipes?

One day you’re sitting at home in peace, and the next you’ve experienced one or more of the signs above. And it makes you wonder: What caused this damaged sewer?

Here are your most common culprits for a broken sewer line:

  • Build-up of hair, debris, grease, sludge, oil, toilet paper, etc.
  • Tree roots infiltrating sewer pipe holes/joints
  • Poor or lack of maintenance
  • Uncontrollable causes like earthquakes or heavy construction nearby
  • Natural wear-and-tear (aging)
  • Regular ground freezes/thaws (a problem in the winter)
  • Poor sewer pipe layout, design, and/or installation
  • Backup from a city’s sewer line

How we fix your sewer lines: A look at your options

After conducting a thorough sewer line inspection with our high-definition camera equipment, we will diagnose your problem and provide you with a thorough repair plan that fits your budget and timeline.

Here are some of your sewer line repair options:

  1. The Trenchless Repair Solution (if the damage is extensive): Skip the destroyed yard and ruined driveway with our special, minimally-invasive trenchless sewer repair. How we do it: We make small access holes where the damaged pipe starts and ends. Using your broken sewer line as a guide, our hydraulic machine pulls full-sized replacement pipe through the old path and breaks up the damaged pipe at the same time. The new pipe is highly resistant to leaks and root intrusion, with a long life expectancy. Most homeowners in the GTA prefer trenchless sewer repair because it’s more affordable and less intrusive than other open-line sewer repair methods.
  2. Pipe Relining (better for minimal damage, like spot repairs): A pipe relining restores function and flow to damaged sewer pipes by creating a “pipe within a pipe.” We carefully plant an epoxy lining material that molds to the inside of the existing pipe to form a smooth new inner wall. It’s a seamless, durable, and non-hazardous sewer line repair method for root-damaged pipes, sealing cracks and holes, and filling in the pipe and joint gaps underground.
  3. Preventive Pipe Maintenance (make sure it doesn’t happen again): Last but not least, regular inspections and drain cleaning are important to prevent sewer line damage. You’ll avoid cracks, clogs, and bursts by keeping major debris out of your pipes.

While both drains and sewer lines get wastewater out of your home, there are some key differences that you should know as a homeowner.

You will find main drains inside the walls and floors of your home, whereas sewer lines run underground. One end of the drain pipes in your home is connected to various household fixtures (like toilets, sinks, and bathtubs) and the other end connects to the main sewer line.

So whenever you run water, flush the toilet, or use your washing machine, water runs down the drain line in your house and into the sewer line. As the water flows out of your home, it goes into your city’s sewer system or your septic tank.

The average lifespan of a sewer line is around 30-50 years, depending on the material and how well it is maintained. There are several factors that can cause your sewer line to deteriorate faster, such as ground freezes/thaws, debris build-up, tree root infiltration, natural wear-and-tear (aging), poor connections, and poor installation.

Most homeowners’ insurance policies do not cover sewer line damage and repair. However, you may be able to add coverage for plumbing repairs or breakdowns as an optional rider on your policy. Check with your insurer for more information.

Typically, the homeowner is responsible for repairs to the sewer line. However, in some cases, municipalities or local governments may provide assistance if certain conditions are met. Check with your municipality for more information.
