Collapsed sewer lines are the result of several different factors, and it’s important as a homeowner to understand why sewer lines collapse and how to be proactive if you identify a risk factor or begin having drainage issues.

First, in many of our beautiful Denver neighborhoods, the established homes have older pipes and/or mature landscaping. One of the primary reasons for a collapsed sewer line is tree root incursion. When older, mature tree roots extend deep into the ground, they naturally make their way towards sources of water—including your sewer line. As the tree roots grow into your sewer line and eventually break through pipe joints, the resulting stress can create misalignments in the pipe walls that allow water leakages. Left undetected or repaired, a sewer line collapse is often the result.

Pipe misalignments created from soil settling and other types of erosion also can create leaks severe enough to result in a sewer line collapse. Over time, misaligned pipes allow wastewater to leak into the soil, creating erosion that often leads to a collapsed sewer line. Finally, some collapsed sewer lines are simply the result of the breakdown of the original pipe material used. Today’s pipes are constructed to avoid many of these problems altogether.
