Sewer and storm lines are typically made from 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, and cast iron and PVC pipes can last 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 for new, PVC pipes.
However, regardless of the type of materials used to replace or install new sewer lines, sewer and storm lines can still break and crack, and become blocked due to tree roots, temperature changes, changes and shifts in underground pressure and other materials, which means you need to be on the look out for clogged pipes in your home.
Furthermore, pipes and sewer lines can also become clogged from years of accumulated materials and calcium deposit build-up, which can cause severe blockages. If this happens, then it is time to have your sewer lines inspected before a disaster happens.
