If you have been a homeowner for any length of time, no one has to tell you the importance of regular maintenance on your sewer system. It is something you may not think about very often, unless there is a problem, but regular maintenance is absolutely necessary to avoid costly repairs down the road.
There are many problems that can arise with a residential sewer system. Pipes can be broken, collapsed or cracked due to settling, shifting ground or freezing temperatures. Leaking joints can occur when the seals between the pipes are broken. There can be a blockage, due to a foreign object or buildup of grease in the line. Tree roots can invade the pipe and cause damage and leaking. Pipes can also corrode from age or use of a substandard material.
