Three Types of Sewer Pipe Problems

If you have sewer problems, there could be a number of reasons why the pipes in your sewer are not holding up. Here are three types of sewer problems that could be occurring:

1. You have a bellied pipe. This means the surrounding soil has caused your sewer pipe to sink and now waste and paper are collecting in this section of the pipe.
2. The pipes in your sewer have leaking joints, allowing the water to flow out of those areas.
3. You have a substandard pipe whose materials are not of high quality and therefore, the pipes are degrading or corroding.
