When you look outside in your yard, you probably don’t think about the plumbing pipes that are buried in the ground.
In fact, a majority of your plumbing system is buried in the ground outside of your building. This includes your main water line and your sewer pipes.
Both of these systems are vital to the overall function of your plumbing. If your water line is unable to bring clean water to your home or business, some tasks will be made much more difficult:
- Washing dishes
- Doing laundry
- Taking a shower or bath
- Washing your hands
- Grooming activities like shaving or brushing your teeth
- Flushing the toilet
- Running the dishwasher
- Washing produce or meat
Also, if your sewer line is unable to carry the used water and waste away from your plumbing fixtures or appliances, you will have a puddle of sewage in your home or business.
This can lead to a very unsanitary environment and could be devastating to your productivity. If you own a business, having a plumbing problem will directly affect your reputation and your revenue.

What Might Have Caused My Sewer or Water Line To Fail?
The way that your plumbing system is used directly correlates with how your sewer or water line might fail.
Each of your plumbing fixtures and appliances require fresh water to be brought from the main water source. This could be from a well or from a municipal water pipe that your plumbing system is tied into.
Also, each fixture and appliance that uses water requires a drain system to carry the used water away.
Some activities can lead to plumbing failures happening much more often include
- Rinsing large amounts of shaving cream down the bathroom sink
- Using the toilet as a garbage can
- Misusing the garbage disposal
- Not installing drain covers to catch strands of hair
Each of these behaviors will lead to clogs forming in your plumbing system and causing damage to your sewer line.
The most common cause of sewer and water line damage though is tree roots. When the root system of a tree grows out into the soil in search of food and water – they will stop at nothing to find these nutrients.
Unfortunately, this includes growing inside of your water or sewer lines. In fact, at Absolute Plumbing and Drain of Martinez we see bulbs of tree root growths causing damage to water and sewer lines on a regular basis.
The most efficient and streamlined way to repair your water and sewer lines after a tree root encroachment is through trenchless sewer repair and replacement.
