Common Signs that You May Have a Damaged Sewer Line
It is often difficult to determine if you have a damaged sewer line without
the specialized tools necessary to access those pipes. However, homeowners
often notice the following signs that may indicate a problem:
- There is a foul odor coming up your drains
- Your drains are draining unusually slowly
- You hear gurgling noises in your drains or in your pipes
- Areas of your lawn are saturated and do not dry up
- There are pools of water near your foundation
- There is water backing up into your sinks or bathtubs
You notice mold growing near your pipes, under cabinets or on your baseboards

Common Causes of a Damaged Sewer Line
There are a variety of things that can cause damage to your sewer line.
Some are within your control as a homeowner and others are not. The most
common causes of a damaged sewer line are:
If someone in your household regularly flushes large quantities of paper,
paper towels, baby wipes, or feminine hygiene products, your drains may
be clogged. Over time, clogs can back waste and wastewater into your home.
They can also damage your pipes and potentially cause them to burst.
Broken pipes are another common cause of sewer line problems. Depending
on how old your plumbing system is, and how well maintained, breaks could
cause a minor leak or a major problem. Serious breaks may warrant updating
your sewer line.
Tree and plant roots tend to grow toward water. Sometimes that means growing
toward your sewer line. As tree roots grow, they can cause pipes to become
displaced or broken.
If you live in an area where the ground regularly freezes and thaws, your
sewer line may be at risk. As water expands in the pipes, pressure builds
and pipes can crack or rupture.
