If you are in the process of purchasing an older home, it’s important to know that the sewer and storm lines are typically made from concrete, cast iron, clay (terra cotta), brick, or PVC. While some sewer line materials are stronger than others, remember that no material lasts forever. Over time, sewer and storm lines can break, crack, and become damaged from tree roots, temperature changes, shift in ground pressure, and other underground materials.
One example of this – as a tree grows and expands, so do its roots. Those roots can break in and pierce a concrete or clay sewer line, causing it to break or creating a blockage, which can lead to a back up into your home or property.
Furthermore, pipes and sewer lines can also become clogged due an accumulation of muck and materials as mentioned above. Any accumulation can form a coating and cause a blockage, eventually leading to a break and/or backup in a sewer line.
