A plumbing drain system can best be compared to a tree with several branch lines and one trunk line. Your system consists of several individual drain lines (branch lines) that all eventually converge into one “main pipe” under the foundation of the house. From your house, the main line will usually run directly to the city sewer main in the middle of the street. However, sometime the city sewer main runs between houses in the back yard or you could be on a septic system. Either way, all drain water in your house will eventually leave through one pipe and connect to the city main (or septic tank).
Sewer lines get clogged and “backup” for a variety of reasons but roots is the most common problem. Tree roots make their way through joints where two pieces of sewer pipe are connected or at a break in the pipe. The severity of the problem can be determined by how long those roots have been infiltrating the line, soil conditions, ground water, differing types of pipe and even by chemicals or grease being flushed down the line.
