Why Do Sewer Pipes Fail?
Under performing side sewer pipes can have devastating outcomes resulting in thousands of dollars paid out for sewer replacement costs, home remodel costs and personal property damage after sewage back-ups. Often these events are "out of the blue" with no significant warning signs to predict a sewer failure. Pictured is a sewer pipe that over time failed due to multiple factors. Old materials, proximity to trees and differed maintenance including no check-up (sewer scope) allowed this pipe to fail.
- Sewer pipes naturally deteriorate over time.
- Damage can be caused by construction trades.
- Shoddy or improperly installed sewer pipes fail.
