Sewer and storm lines are commonly made of concrete, cast iron, clay (also known as “terra cotta”), brick, or PVC. Concrete, brick, and clay pipes can last up to 40 years or longer, whereas cast iron and PVC pipes can last on an average of 60 years or even longer, depending on how well they are maintained. This is why most plumbing system upgrades involving swapping out old, clay or concrete pipes to PVC pipes.
However, regardless of what materials are used for sewer lines, sewer and storm lines can break and crack, and become blocked due to tree roots, temperature changes, and even changes and shifts in underground pressure.
Furthermore, pipes and sewer lines can become clogged from years of accumulated materials, and even calcium deposit build-up, forming a coating and causing blockages. If this happens, then it is time for a repair before a backup happens.
