What Causes a Cracked Sewer Pipe

All sorts of things can account for a cracked, broken, or otherwise damaged underground sewer line, including the following:

  • Shifting or settling soil
  • Pipe corrosion
  • Tree or shrub roots that have cracked and infiltrated the pipes
  • Faulty installation
  • Poor quality materials
  • And so on

What’s a plumber to do?  Well, when a sewer can’t be cleaned, it’s time to investigate the source of the problem. For starters, we’ll employ one of our in-line sewer video cameras to not just locate the affected area, but to determine the extent and cause of the problem, too. That step alone saves us from digging up your yard or pavement to make a proper diagnosis.

If the sewer is clogged but not cracked, we’ll employ a high-pressure water jet to break up the clog and clear the affected line from one end to the other. That’s another way to prevent damaging your property through excavation while getting water to flow your drain again.

And yet, what if the problem really is a cracked or separated sewer line? Here at Connor Plumbing, we have the equipment, skill, and experience to replace any above- or underground drain line, no matter how small or large the problem might be.

So, if you have slow-moving drain, or one that’s completely blocked, give us a call so we can start making things right again.
