What causes water lines and sewer lines to become clogged or blocked?
A clog can form in the water line as a result of mineral buildup, rust or debris. Clogs in sewer lines can be caused by grease, hair or other debris.

If a water line or sewer line issue is not fixed, it can lead to costly repairs, water damage and potential health hazards.
Common Causes of Sewer Backup
Obstructions in the city’s sanitary sewer main can cause your sewer to back up. Tree roots can also create problems if they expand into your lines. There are a couple things you can do to avoid a backup:
- Dispose of waste correctly.
- Don’t dispose of grease down your drain.
- Don’t flush paper towels, wet wipes or feminine products.
- Have Epperson Service Experts install a backwater prevention valve to stop sewer backflows.
- Have us check older plumbing connections to make sure they’re up to code. Bad connections in French drains, sump pumps or flood control systems can clog the lines with debris and silt.
- Replace your line and tap with plastic pipe to limit the potential damage tree roots can cause.
