Common Problems With Your Sewer Line

Broken Sewer Line

Sewer line problems are something most homeowners will deal with at some point in time. Fortunately, most issues can be easily dealt with and resolved. Absolute Plumbing and Drain is the trusted provider of trenchless sewer repair. Here are some of the common problems that homeowners encounter with their main sewer lines.

Tree Roots

Of all the problems homeowners can have with their sewer lines, tree roots are the most common. Tree roots seek the nutrients in sewage. Once they're in the pipe, their roots quickly grow and clog the pipe. That growth can crack or push apart pipe segments. If this happens, you could benefit from our repairs that are trenchless in Concord, CA.


Grease, soap, hair, organic matter, baby and hygiene products can clog sewer lines. Hydro jetting can help, but you might need a trenchless pipe repair for a severe clog.


Compacted soil, flooding rain or age-related deterioration may cause the sewer line to crack or collapse. If this happens, calling a professional for a timely trenchless pipe replacement is a good idea.


Backflow can happen if there's more pressure in the sewer than in your potable water line. Sometimes it's a municipal issue, such as hydrant flushing, but other times, it's a sewer problem that would benefit from trenchless sewer replacement.

Pipe Offset

Shifting soil, tree roots or poor installation could cause an offset between pipe segments. The offset area has a smaller diameter and can lead to seepage and backflow. This situation may require a new trenchless pipe lining to restore the functionality and efficiency of your plumbing system.
