Why Has My Sewer Collapsed?

Having a collapsed sewer is the nightmare of anyone who owns a home in Shorewood, West Allis, or Wauwatosa. The thought of toxic waste ruining the lawn or even the foundations should have homeowners racing for plumbing support. However, what leads to these issues in the first place? Knowing about the typical causes of sewer collapse and distinguishing which are natural and which are related to human error, is key. This will allow residents to avoid such a disaster the next time around.

The typical reasons for sewer failure include:

  • Repeated cases of leaks and clogs – When the surrounding plumbing network keeps experiencing blocks and leaks, water will accidentally fall into the surrounding soil. If the pipes go untreated, this additional water intensifies the pressure on the soil. As the soil shifts, the sewer can collapse from the pressure.
  • An incursion of tree roots – If a large or even a medium-sized tree is placed next to a sewer, chances are that it is going to eventually cause problems. The tree’s roots are drawn to water inside the sewer and will wrap themselves around the pipe. Sometimes, they may crush the sewer line itself, or at least fracture it by squeezing into the joints.
  • Wear and tear over time – Eventually, after several years of laboring to remove waste, sewer pipes will begin to deteriorate. If a plumber has not examined the sewer pipes for a long time, it is helpful to arrange an inspection to avoid a major collapse. 

    “I called in the afternoon about replacing my water heater that had started leaking and they happened to have a cancelation that day and could send someone out right away! Andy was very professional and did a great job explaining everything to me. He even talked with my father on the phone to assure him that it was "Dad Approved"! It was truly appreciated! He got to work right away and had my new water heater all set up in 2hrs! Highly recommend! Amazing service! I got the Knights warranty with my new water heater so I will DEFINITELY be a returning customer!”
